Ernest Bissonnette founded Manchester Redimix Concrete in Manchester, NH.
Ernest started his second company, Nashua Redimix Concrete in Nashua, NH. Ernest passed away in 1957, however Ernest’s wife, Alice, and later his son, Norman, continued the family business establishing Manchester Redimix and Nashua Redimix as the leading concrete suppliers in southern New Hampshire throughout the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s.
With the rebound of the New Hampshire economy, the family business grew dramatically with the acquisitions of Quinn Bros. Corporation in Amherst, NH, Persons Concrete in central and northern New Hampshire, the establishment of Seacoast Redimix Concrete in Dover, NH and the acquisition of Northeast Redimix in Berwick, Maine.
After nearly 60 years and three generations, Redimix Companies was acquired by Oldcastle Materials, Inc., one of four worldwide divisions of CRH plc, of Dublin, Ireland. Oldcastle Materials, Inc. is the leading vertically integrated supplier of aggregates, asphalt, ready mix concrete and paving services in the United States.
