Born in Portugal on November 5, 1948, Owner and CEO Arlindo Augusto has resided in Connecticut since 1973. He studied extensively in Portugal and later served in the Portuguese Army. Upon arriving in the United States, he worked with three asphalt paving companies before starting his own business, A&J Construction, in 1979.

Prior to his move to the United States in 1968, Ray Boa was born in Portugal and raised in Angola, Africa. He studied in both Angola and the Unites States, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration. While attending school, Boa worked for six years at Groliers as a part-time supervisor, and was later promoted to full-time supervisor upon graduation. In 1978, he went to work for Duracell, where he held the position of Manager of Special Products and later advanced to serve as the company's Export Manager. In 1982, Boa became a silent partner in A&J Construction, and in April 1989, he resigned from Duracell to work for A&J Construction in a full-time capacity. He and his wife are United States citizens and live in Brookfield.
Both men's enterprising and enthusiastic abilities complement one another's skills, emboldening A&J Construction to continuously grow and thrive.
