Joe's Custom Polishing & Manufacturing is named after Jerry's dad, Joe Perreault who started the company in 1971. Jerry purchased the company from his dad in 1979. Joe still works around the plant along with Jerry several days a week. The polishing portion of the company accounts for 10 percent of the total business. The manufacturing of monuments is the company's mainstay.
The 4,200-square foot plant and accompanying 8,400-square foot warehouse, house three diamond saws, three polishers, one planer, two full time employees and a lot of hard work.
Jerry talks directly to his customers and personally handles the layout and oversees every order.
Perreault employs five people full-time, including Christine and office manager/bookkeeper Debbie and they all wear the many hats of small business employees—Christine also does the trucking.
