Richard Alain Carrier, born in Canada, August of 1952, established himself in the transportation industry 40 years ago. Starting his career in the Northern Maine Woods, cutting timber while working with his father and brother, Richard quickly earned the respect of others with his hard work and honesty.
Moving to Skowhegan, Maine in the late 1980’s, Richard purchased four acres of land, built a modest two bay garage and personally oversaw the operations of his handful of trucks. Working seven days a week from his small office in the garage, Richard steadily increased his holdings, both in land and tractors, within ten years. Richard Carrier Trucking grew from four trucks to over fifty. His four acres, have grown to over 45 paved acres. The two bay garage has been expanded twice to six bays. Other additions include a corporate office, warehouse, truck scales and an on-site dumper and storage to meet customer needs.
Quick to credit those who work around him for success, Richard Carrier has and will continue to grow and be prosperous because of the hard work and honesty which he still applies to all his business endeavors.
