Member Spotlight - May 2021
This month’s Member Spotlight features JP Carrara & Sons, a member of the Addison County Chamber since 1983.
J. P. Carrara & Sons, Inc. is a third-generation family owned and operated company that produces sand and stone aggregates, ready-mixed concrete, precast/pre-stressed concrete products, and has recently added construction and masonry products. J. P. Carrara & Sons, Inc. was founded in the early 1940s, when an Italian immigrant named Joseph P. Carrara Sr. purchased an old concrete mixer truck to supplement his barn building business.
With the addition of his sons he began to grow the business and eventually ready-mixed concrete was the main product. They added a pre-cast division, which began in 1970 with a focus on architectural precast/pre-stressed products. Today, their diverse line of products includes hollow-core slabs for floor and roof deck systems, beams and slabs for bridges, components for parking structures, stadiums, and other total precast building solutions.
Among JP Carrara & Sons award winning projects are the Rockingham,VT I-91 Bridge and the Montaje Hybird Parking Structure in Somerville, MA. Other major projects include the YOTEL Hotel in Boston, the William H Dalton Memorial Bridge in Wareham, MA and the New York Wheel Parking Structure in Staten Island, NY.
