Gerald Quinn and his partner founded Almar. By using the first part of each man’s wive’s name: ALMAR; AL (Alice) MAR (Mary), was choosen and the name stuck even after the partner left.
Gerald’s son Terry took over the family business. By this time, Almar consisted of 5 full-time employees who were working construction projects from roofing and siding to blow-in Insulation.
Business continued to grow, and Almar's office was moved from Holbrook to Hanson. Services expanded to include lead paint abatement complementing its existing full-service remodeling projects.
In May of 2002, Terry's daughter Allison joined the Management team, keeping Gerald’s dream alive.
Almar's office moved to Rt. 53 in Hanover. The larger space allows customers to meet with Almar's Design/Build team and easily view samples of materials.
The team moves into a new Hanover office giving the business even more space to grow and develop. Almar now takes on any size projects for municipalities, private jobs involving kitchen and bath remodels, basement remodels, decks, sun rooms, second story, and other additions, garages, and many other types of major Design/Build remodeling projects.

Mark has been part of the Almar team since the early 1990s. He is a licensed construction supervisor who works diligently to ensure that every job is done right. With a natural eye for detail, when asked what part of remodeling he likes the best, Mark told us, “the interior trim work.” But he is truly good at all phases of Remodeling. He enjoys participating in Jen’s team each year for the MS Walk. Mark lives in Whitman with his wife Jean and three kids, which keeps him very busy when he’s not working.

When not at work, he stays active by running, mountain biking, and renovating his own home in Whitman.
