The Group remains a family owned and operated business with Ted Celi as Managing Director. Employing more than 500 people (and many more indirectly), the group continues along a path of growth and expansion.
To fund their business, the Celi's sold their 1967 Falcon. Some 25 years later, they purchased it back again and restored it.
