Canete to manage snow at Super Bowl

Industry News

The New Jersey snow management company was awarded a five-year contract.

| September 18, 2013

WAYNE, N.J. - Canete Snow Management of Wayne N.J., ranked in the top 25 snow removal companies in the nation, was recently awarded a lucrative and exclusive five-year contract to manage the snow removal at MetLife Stadium located in Secaucus, N.J., home to the New York Giants and New York Jets.
 
The contract requires 843 workers to remove all the snow from the inside of the stadium. According to Tom Canete, the snow has to be removed, regardless of whether there is a game or not. To help ensure that everybody is available to get to work, Canete has hired luxury busses to transport workers to and from the stadium and anybody who works the impending storms will also be provided with meals.
 
Tom Canete, owner of Canete Snow Management, Vice President of the New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association and a board member of The Accredited Snow Contractors Association, is currently recruiting contractors to help fill this tall order, which is apparently no easy task. Besides the sheer number of workers needed to manage the stadium, the FBI must screen each applicant for past criminal history.
 
Canete, however, is taking it all in stride as he flips through the Farmer's Almanac and sees that snow is predicted to fall on game day, potentially making this the first snowstorm at a Superbowl in a cold weather state. "I don't know about you, but just the thought of being a part of Superbowl history gives me chills. Or maybe it's the thought of all that snow. Either way it's very exciting." says Canete.
