Our Culture: The Peckham Way
William H. ‘Bill’ Peckham
Welcome to Peckham Industries, Inc.
Since our founding on March 17, 1924 by William H. Peckham, Peckham Industries has remained a family-owned construction and materials partner. For over 99 years, Peckham has served New York state and New England with loyalty and mastery. Our familial background has allowed our team to implement safety, integrity, dedication, and efficiency into each project—all while simultaneously striving to enhance the communities that surround them. Peckham provides a wide range of products and services, including aggregates, asphalt pavements, paving and construction services, recycled pavement solutions, precast concrete parking garage components and more. Headquartered in Brewster, NY, Peckham’s extensive network throughout New York and New England includes hot mix asphalt plants, stone quarries, bulk asphalt terminals, paving and construction services, liquid calcium chloride and emulsion terminals, as well as the logistics capabilities and expertise to deliver those products to you. Our generational experience allows us to construct your ideal project. Relying on the forefront of family values for a century, the fourth generation of the Peckham family has built an organization that promises a safe and sustainable future that will allow it to grow and guide for the next 100 years.
