Northern Vt., N.H. Get the ‘Real’ Deal From Desrochers Family of Companies By Jay Adams CEG CORRESPONDENT
Real is an appropriate and uplifting first name for a contractor and excavator who keeps his promises, does his work well and has earned a stellar reputation for heavy iron and crane work in northern Vermont and New Hampshire. In 2014, Real Desrochers and his wife Denise will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Desrochers Excavating Inc. and its family of companies, Desrochers Crane Service Inc., Desrochers Bulk Service Inc. and Desrochers Barn Supply & Equipment Inc. With headquarters in Derby, Vt., Desrochers specializes in heavy moving and lifting. The company was founded in 1974 when the man that Real Desrochers was working for was going out of business. “He offered dad one of two things: a boat or a 6-ton Scott Midland crane,” said Robert Desrochers, the oldest son of Real and Denise, who along with brothers Rene and Randy help run the company. “Dad, being the person he is, took the crane. Later on, he bought a small excavation company from Robert Taplin,” said Robert. “Mr. Taplin stuck by my Dad until his death, giving him advice and being someone who Dad could bounce ideas off of who would not go running around spreading it all over town.” Real Desrochers first learned the trade In 2014, Real Desrochers and his wife Denise will celebrate the 40th from Taplin with his brother Joe and anniversary of Desrochers Excavating Inc. and its family of companies, Desrochers Crane Service Inc., Desrochers Bulk Service Inc. and Denise’s brother Mark. “Luckily, my father made some good Desrochers Barn Supply & Equipment Inc. choices in the beginning, as far as employThree Sons, Three Cranes ees. These first guys stuck by my dad for years,” said Robert. Robert, Rene and Randy joined the company in the 1980s “They were the type of guys who took pride in what they did — whatever it was — cellar holes, preparing grades for slabs along with three, new, larger cranes, with lifting capacities of or landscaping. From what I can remember, the bread and 15, 23 and 30-tons (13.6, 23.6, 27.2 t).

Two Link-Belt Cranes Support Prefab Building Boom DESROCHERS from page 1
lifting jobs. As the prefab building business boomed, two larger cranes were added in 2003 and 2005 — a 90-ton (81.6 t) and a Link-Belt 50-ton (45.4 t) model. The Desrochers family has moved houses, barns, diners, buildings, bridges and raised rafters, steel buildings and expectations in the woods of northern Vermont. Back in the 1980s the Desrochers tore down the area’s drive-in theater to usher in three new businesses. Projects, Past and Present Numerous projects in the last decade have included: • The Adelphia project: The new television building for Adelphia at its tower site consisted of eight 8-ft. (2.4 m) wide concrete structures each weighing 56,000 lbs. (25,401 kg). The sections arrived on tractor-trailers and were flipped due to lying on their side for transport. Each one was lifted, moved and installed onto a new foundation. • Setting steel for a new building addition at Presby Environmental facility in Whitehill, N.H. • A historic barn moved from Irasburg, Vt., to Derby. • On a Taylor Made home in Troy, Vt.: Desrochers hoisted building materials used in a project built down into a gully, where the job site was located. The home was built on a ledge along a river, with a set of stairs from the elevated garage down to the home site. • Miss Newport Diner relocation: “The historic Miss Newport Diner was part of many locals’ daily routine since the 1950s,” said Robert. “We moved it off its foundation

with our 90-ton Grove crane and moved it to its first stop in New Hampshire with our drop deck trailer.” • At a new Groveton, N.H. sporting goods store, the 90ton crane was used to lift into place an entire 50 x 38-ft. (15.2 x 11.6 m) timber frame facade, costing $54,000 for wood and weighing 13,000 lbs. (5,896.7 kg). • The Island Pond project: Desrochers used the 90-ton Grove crane, (teaming with a Bedford, N.H. crane company), to lift both ends of a new 114-ft.-long (34.7m) pedestrian bridge. They set it in place over a set of railroad tracks that had separated the villages of Upper and Lower Island Pond since 1974 (their founding year), when the original pedestri-

an bridge had been torn down due to age. • A 100-year anniversary remodeling project at St. Mary’s Church in Newport, N.H., lifting an aerial basket used during the washing and re-grouting of large granite blocks. • Jay Peak Ski Resort: Desrochers have participated in numerous projects, including lifting and removing 60-person capacity cars from the old tramway and replacing them with new, larger, more modern cars. “Currently, we are part of the Jay Peak expansion, setting wall panels and rafters on the newest hotel. We are also setting the numerous modular homes that have been fabricated in the last three years by another Vermont company, Huntington Homes, in East Montpelier and set at Jay Peak,” said Robert. “Our 90-ton crane is now lifting steel beams for the construction of a new school at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. We are setting steel at the expansion at Norwich University and the new Augusta, Maine Courthouse.” In addition, Desrochers is hard at work excavating new substations in Jay and Derby, Vt.; excavating and farm sales and installation in Chelsea, Vt.; and excavating and crane service regarding cell tower work in Plainfield and St. Albans, Vt.; along with working with general contractors and sub-contractors. see DESROCHERS page 6

Robert. The company’s web site is replete with kind words and testimonials. “In my 20 years in the broadcast and communications industry, Desrochers Crane Service is one of the finest companies I have dealt with. At the heart of this are good people who perform outstanding work with a desire to please the customer like no other. Their willingness to work with you and rearrange their schedule at the last minute when possible to accommodate last-minute needs is second to none,” said Eli Pitts, vice president of Prescott Tower Services LTD. “Word of mouth is greatly important. We pride ourselves on repeat customers,” said Robert. “Our company was part of the 100year anniversary renovation of St. Mary’s Church in Newport. The greatest obstacle at the time was the reach and ability to get to the rear of the two towers. So, we came up with a solution. We, along with others, developed a basket we could mount to one of our cranes that would pivot 150 degrees and
pivot up and down 60 degrees.” The Desrochers family are true neighbors, vital community members and, clearly, Vermonters. Real, Rene and Robert are members of the Elks. Real does much for his local church. Robert has been part of local Rotary functions and participates as an annual volunteer in the area’s Winterfest. “For several years, my brother Rene has set the ducks into the river with a crane for the Rotary Duck Regatta,” said Robert. On the eve of its 40th anniversary, brother Randy’s two children are of age to help set the ducks with their Dad, rather than run the crane. But is a third generation of Desrochers in the wings? “My brother Randy has two children, both boys, but they are too young to call,” said Robert.
