A little bit about the builder:

The Smucker family has been building bridges since 1988. Dave Smucker is now running the business his Father Amos & Brother started. Dave lives on a farm in New Holland, PA with his wife Marian and their 4 children. The quality and attention to detail that Dave puts into his product is unlike any other. His main concern is the customer and he is always trying to go above and beyond. With only a couple employees this small family run business never disappoints.


"We wish to express our thanks for a top quality 16 foot bridge at our home. It is solid, quality materials, of excellent workmanship. Pride in workmanship and service like this is rare today."
