  2. 2History

    History

    VRH was founded on October 23, 1958 by three young men – Victor Wortmann, his younger brother, Robert, and their younger cousin, Herbert. They could hardly have known what lay ahead.

    Through the ensuing six decades, VRH has been involved in virtually every facet of aviation-related development in the Northeast U.S. In addition to projects completed for The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, we’ve performed work for 63 domestic and foreign carriers. And counting.

  3. 3Trusted Partner

    Trusted Partner

    We take our commitments seriously and that is the key reason we experience so many long-term relationships. In fact, most of our revenue is derived from existing clients, spanning several decades. It undoubtedly contributes to increased proficiency, dependability, and client satisfaction-as evidenced by a track record of repeat business.

    Our construction professionals have an unmatched base of knowledge of the New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia metro area airport terminals’ unique requirements and they bring that expertise to the table from the get-go. Our expertise is further broadened by a history of working in concert with a reliable stable of longstanding, loyal subcontractors with deep aviation experience, as well as security clearance for quick mobilization. Together, they ensure that you have the right players creating the right fit for the right job. In aviation, logistics are key. For that reason, we’re structured for instantaneous responses and creative problem-solving through project completion. Our unmatched blend of proactive mindset, flexible approach, and can-do attitude combine to streamline the most challenging projects.
