Hugo Key and Son was formed in 1927 by Hugo Key.  The company was started as a landscape maintenance company, which serviced the Newport area.  Hugo Key maintained many of the large mansions and specialized in large tree moving. Over the years the company grew and began to service not only Rhode Island, but most of Southern New England.  The company also expanded into road construction and site work during the 1960’s. In 1972, Hugo Key completed the construction of America’s Cup Avenue in Newport, RI.  Today, Hugo Key and Son specializes in site development, utility work, landscape construction, and marine construction.
