Our Team

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. Our team does 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 | Sustainability and Energy Consultant

My experience with mechanical insulation started back in high school working for a family friend who owned Damon Insulation, based in Bow, NH. I began working in the warehouse and eventually transitioned to the field where I gained on-the-job training, boom and scissor lift certification as well as my OSHA 10. I worked for Damon as I attended school, working summer and winter breaks and whenever I could.

I moved to Vermont full time as I attended St. Michael’s College and began working for NCMI as a field installer on school breaks and Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays while I continued to attended school. After several months in the field I transitioned to an internship in the office overseeing small jobs, networking, direct to customer sales, social media, and the overall development the business. When I graduated in May of 2017 I was offered the position of Business Development Officer.

Currently I wear many “hats” at NCMI. Some days I find myself on the job site operating as a project manager and facilitator while other days I operate as an Energy Consultant. As a certified Mechanical Insulation Energy Appraiser, I perform Insulation Energy Appraisals for companies throughout New England, performing facility walk-throughs where I evaluate the current level of insulation and run calculations to determine how much energy is being lost with their current system.

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 in close collaboration with our field foremen 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

Jay Barron | Project Manager

My experience working with mechanical insulation 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 several 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, manpower, hiring, firing, and scheduling, as well as general day-to-day operations.
