After his service in World War II, Henry Wisinski started a contracting company called THE HENRY COMPANY, a General Construction company. His projects consisted of residential housing and small commercial buildings. in the 1960’s, the company name was change to Henry General Contracting Corp. and the projects of that era included work on the New York State Thruway system’s bridges and rest areas, and construction at Syracuse Hancock International Airport for the Air National Guard, Army Reserve, and the Fire Station that serves the airports main runways.
During the 1970’s Henry expanded the company to include land development and started purchasing farms within the Town of Cicero. These farms became some of the first sub divisions in the Town of Cicero which is now a thriving community. As part of this development, Henry purchased heavy earth moving equipment, and hiring experienced equipment operators.
One day he was in need of a scraper operator and came home for lunch and watched is 12 year old son Cory mowing the lawn and told him to stop mowing and “Get in the truck. I have a different job for you.” This is the day Cory Wisinski started his passion for earth moving. Henry later pass in 1986 at a young age of 62 and the company was dissolved.
At the passing of his father, Cory inhered a small bulldozer and started a company which he called Cory Wisinski Excavating. At the age of 21, Cory had no knowledge of running a business and with doing small back yard projects like digging pools, basements, installing lawns and driveways.
