Our History

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.



2nd Generation

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.



3rd Generation

In May of 2002, Terry's daughter Allison joined the Management team, keeping Gerald’s dream alive.



Hanover HQ

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.



Continued growth

The team moves into a new Hanover office giving the business even more space to grow and develop.
