Anello Fence, located at 50 Route 23, is proud to carry on 50 years of fences within the Anello family. Anello Fence invites local residents and customers to celebrate with the fourth generation. “To understand our business, I think it’s important to take a look at where we came from and how the family has progressed over the last 50 years,” says Steve Anello, owner of Anello Fence.
As immigration began to taper off in the mid-1950s, a key local character found his was onto American soil from his homeland of Italy. Emilio Anello, Sr. came to the United States in 1956 and began working for a local company in the fence industry. Little did he know, this move would set the pace for the rest of his life and impact his father Salvatore Anello. Seven years later, on Route 23 in Wayne, Anello Bros. Inc was born. “Emilio Anello, the founding father of Anello Bros. Inc and the person responsible for making the Anello name synonymous with fences, came to America in search of an opportunity; he is the very embodiment of what the American dream looks like,” says Steve Anello, Emilio’s son.
Over the course of the next decade and a half, the company outgrew its Wayne location and moved to a larger location. Salvatore would travel between New Jersey and his hometown in Italy frequently to accommodate his Italian real estate business while playing an invaluable role in his sons’ fence company until 1968 when he retired.
Throughout the years, Anello Bros., Inc. improved their trade, constantly pushing to remain a frontrunner in the fencing industry. Anello was not only the largest retail fence establishment in Northern New Jersey, but also was a major wholesale supplier to many other fence companies in the Northeast. In 1967, Emilio and Joseph purchased and ran a saw mill in Vermont to manufacture their own wood fences. The saw mill supplied not only their store but many other fence companies and ultimately many homeowners. 1974 brought on the addition of self-manufactured chain link fences by running three machines twenty-four hours a day. Finally in 1999, Steve Anello began fabricating vinyl fencing as the first in the area to do so.
Currently Anello is one of North Jersey’s largest suppliers of the product and now runs three PVC machines daily. Today Anello Fence, LLC, owned by Steve Anello, offers several additional fencing varieties like arbors, mailboxes, mailbox posts, bamboo fences, and aluminum fences. Steve Anello is now introducing his three sons to the fence industry, making four generations within the industry.
Anello Fence is one of Northern New Jersey’s top fencing contractors. Their goal is to provide the best quality fences while still remaining an affordable solution for your needs.
Fences are manufactured to face the test of time, all the while reflecting a timeless beauty. After 50 years in the industry, the Anello family often marvels at the progress of the previous five decades. “It is such an honor to be where I am right now, bringing up my three sons as the fourth generation of Anello’s in the fence industry and at the same time honoring my father and his brother Joseph for all of their hard work over the years,” explains Steve Anello.
