Jason Barron | President
Mechanical insulation has been a part of my life since the age of 13. Originally, my father owned NCMI and I transitioned from the warehouse, the field, to an office position. Currently, I own North Country and provide the best mechanical insulation services to companies throughout New England.
The future looks promising for North Country, we now offer a variety of different services, from Energy Appraisals to custom work. We do everything within our power to make the customer not only happy, but to make NCMI their first choice for their mechanical insulation needs.
Eric Simpson | Business Development
My experience with mechanical insulation started the winter of my senior year of high school. A close friend’s family owned a mechanical insulation company in southern New Hampshire. I began working in the warehouse and received on-the-job training, learning the ins and outs of the trade and the materials we used. Eventually I transitioned to job sites and worked summer and winter breaks while I attended Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, VT.
My junior year of college I moved off campus and needed a source of income for the summer. I looked within the area for a job that could utilize my unique skillset in marketing and mechanical insulation. Over the course of my job search, a truck with NCMI’s logo and phone number passed me on the highway and and I scrambled to write the number down and do some further research. The rest is history.
I’ve been working at NCMI for one year. I have transitioned from work in the field over the summer as well as various weekdays when not in class. My academic program requires me to undergo an internship and Jason graciously hired me as a marketing intern where I have transitioned to working in the office performing sales, social media outreach, brand recognition, energy audits, photographic documentation as well as case studies. I look forward to my career at NCMI!
Richard Labarge | Warehouse Manager
I have been working in construction for most my life. Jason, the president of NCMI, is my neighbor and one day he was driving by and asked if I was looking for some extra work on a weekend. Throughout the course of the day I helped in the warehouse and Jason discussed the day-to-day of the business. Eventually, I was offered a job and 3 ½ years later, I manage the warehouse, maintain a fleet of 20 trucks and vans, manage the goods received and shipped in, and haul material to the insulators and foremen throughout New England. I fill in and do all sorts of odd jobs throughout the day and work with the team. Jason has been good to me and I am happy to be a part of NCMI.
Emilee Barron | Office Manager
I have been working at NCMI for 13 years. I started off working in data entry and over time, took on new responsibilities such as payroll, workers comp claims, insurance, new software updates and other roles in office management/accounting. My father gave me the opportunity to work for his company and I am grateful for that.
I work a lot with our field foreman and insulators who call in material and such. We talk, chit chat, and laugh over the phone. My favorite part of the job is the flexibility that it allows me. I have a strong relationship with my two children and Jason is flexible with me in getting the jobs done that a parent needs to!
Jay Barron | Project Manager
My experience working with mechanical insulation a started at the age of 25. I haven’t stopped and have been working in the industry for around 30 years. When it all began, I started working for Jaime, the original owner of NCMI, and transitioned throughout several companies over the course of 20 years. At one point, I started my own insulation company with myself and a couple installers. Jason wanted me back when his father stepped down from the company, and I have been working as Project Manager ever since.
Jason and I have collaborated our knowledge of the field to make NCMI what is today. As Project Manager, I manage and visit job sites, am in charge of all ordering, job coordination, man power, hiring, firing, and scheduling, as well as general day-to-day operations.
Ron Ploof | Chief Estimator
I began working for NCMI approximately 10 years ago. I started off in the field as an installer and after a year of training and hard work I was running jobs on my own. I worked as a foreman for the next 8 years and was given a chance to come into the office and learn our estimating process. I have seen NCMI transition from 7 men in the field to over 20, which speaks volumes about Jason and all the hard work from our employees.
