A Local Multi-Generational Family Owned Business

The crew at Trombley Redi Mix recently upgraded their equipment, but not before giving the old machine one last run while honoring a longtime employee. Now that we are into the 2020's, computers are used for almost everything and now they can help with mixing concrete.

The 70's? 

Just last week Trombley's asked Stewart Adams if he would come back in to work one more shift and batch out the final yards of concrete on the old board. Mr. Adams retired earlier in the year after dedicating 48 years of his life to the company through multiple ownership transfers .Stewart started with Trombley's in 1973, and the board was installed in 1979. Two things you don't see much of these days are employees and equipment lasting for several decades!

Mr. Adams was delivering concrete for Trombley's for two decades and then when the 90's came along he became the concrete dispatch guy, working the old board every day. Trombley's decided to honor Adams and asked him to batch out the final yards and shut the board down. In a time when people seem to change jobs as often as they do vehicles, to work with one company for nearly 50 years is an incredible achievement and testament to the dedication of a certain generation.

Congratulations to Stewart Adams on his retirement and receiving the honor of closing down one era, before a new one begins. Great job by the folks at Trombley Redi Mix for coming up with a thoughtful way to show appreciation to a man who dedicated his life to the business.

15 Must-Have Items For Ice Fishing Season In Maine

Ice fishing is an excellent way to embrace the cold winter months in Maine. It will get you outdoors for some fresh air, it's family friendly, and a successful day could yield a tasty dinner. If you're new to the sport, we put together a list of gear you'll need for a fun, comfortable, and successful day on the ice. Some of these items are more essential than others. Some gear may not be essential at all, depending on how you plan to fish. Again, the items we listed are geared towards those who are new to ice fishing.

Before we get to the list, remember to dress appropriately for the cold weather. We didn't put warm outerwear on the list, but it's definitely a must-have. Dressing in layers is important to ensure you're warm enough throughout the day on the ice. If you start getting too warm, you can simply take a layer off. Hand warmers are also worth packing.
