David Labossiere – Oil Delivery

Talk about dependability! Dave has worked for us for over 30 years – always on time and hardly a sick day.  Dave has lived in Gardner all his life.  He enjoys Harley Davidson motor cycles and when the weather is warm you might see him on his Harley cruising somewhere in New England.

We rely on Dave’s vast delivery experience to help route and dispatch the hundreds of deliveries we make daily when the weather is the coldest. Having someone as dependable as Dave is a great asset to our company. During the cold winter, when the conditions are at their worst, you can count on Dave to arrive at work  early, be sure all the trucks are manned and dispatch the drivers with the deliveries that must be done. Thanks Dave!

Pam would be the other friendly voice you hear when you call our office. Pam started in 2011 and has been relied on to keep our books to the penny ever since. Pam is a great cook and our office is thrilled to have samples of her culinary expertise. It is not unusual to see a great dessert show up when one of the employees celebrate a birthday!

An experienced banker in an earlier career, Pam has great organization and attention to detail. Working side by side with June, Pam is an integral part of the well run office we have. Pam oversees many of the computerized record keeping processes we use every day. Imagine accurately keeping track of thousands of transactions every week, while answering the phone, greeting customers who walk in, dealing with employee schedules, and being responsible for balancing thousands of customer accounts AND you get an idea of a day at work for Pam!
