Robert DiTullio, Sr. – C.E.O. & Founder
Robert DiTullio, Sr., is the CEO and founder of CULTEC Inc. A graduate of Norwalk State Technical Institute with a major in Chemical Engineering, he served as a chemist and research scientist for a major pharmaceutical company before switching careers to join his father and uncle in building, construction, pre-cast concrete and excavation. In 1982, while owner of a local concrete product manufacturing company, DiTullio Sr. recognized there was a need in the market for a smarter, more economical alternative to concrete tri-galleys. As an answer to this, he proposed the idea of a plastic drainage chamber to the State of Connecticut. After three years of designing and prototyping, the first high-capacity plastic drainage chamber capable of supporting traffic loading was introduced to the industry. Out of this ground-breaking invention, CULTEC was born. Since 1988, Bob has led the company from the front, where he continues to design CULTEC’s storm water management and septic chambers and holds several patents to that end. DiTullio Sr. is married to Christina DiTullio, the company’s CFO, has several children and grandchildren, and views each of his employees as an extension of his family.
