A Proud History of Consistent Growth

CCB, Inc. has been "Building New England's Future" by providing clients throughout New England with a full and integrated range of construction services since 1945.

Corporate Growth Timeline

1945

CCB, Inc. (formerly known as Consolidated Constructors & Builders, Inc.) was founded in January 1945 by Robert Dawson, Clifford Johnson, and John Kibler. The main office was located in New York City with a branch office in Portland, Maine.

1963

The first major corporate change occurred when the founders retired, turning ownership and management over to Edward Milvaney and Stanley Pawlowski. The headquarters was moved to Portland, Maine to service the growing market in Northern New England. Under this new leadership, the company continued to develop into a diversified company with a wide range of construction expertise.

1980

Another major change occurred when the company was acquired by Herbert Sargent, Chairman of the Board of one of New England’s oldest and most respected heavy construction firms, H. E. Sargent, Inc., of Stillwater, Maine. The acquisition increased the financial stability and bonding capacity of CCB, and strengthened the company’s project management, data processing, estimating, and cost accounting systems.

1989

A new division of CCB, Inc. -- Northeast Paper Mill Services, Inc. – was launched to provide the in-house ability to perform industrial piping to complement the company’s millwright, rigging, and maintenance services offered to the Maine Paper Industry and other industrial clients. In the summer of 1992, the name was changed to Northern Industrial & Paper Mill Services to reflect the entire market served.

1993

CCB, Inc. (and its affiliated companies) changed to an independent ownership group including principals Donald Starr and Beth Sturtevant. This group’s philosophy is to staff and train both management and craftspeople to a level that will maintain the high standard of quality and service that the customers of CCB, Inc. have come to expect.

1996

CCB, Inc. opened a branch office in Old Town, Maine to provide even better service to our Bangor and northern Maine clients. In addition to a full project management and estimating staff, this office houses a fabrication shop and equipment storage.

2002

CCB, Inc. established increased capacity for millwork installation and interior finishes, and opened a second branch office in New Hampshire.

2003

CCB, Inc. opened an operations center in Wilmington, Massachusetts to better serve customers in Greater Boston.

2004

Leadership and ownership changed once again as Beth Sturtevant and Donald W. Raye partnered to acquire Donald Starr's interest in CCB. With Beth purchasing a majority and controlling share, the ownership change allowed CCB to be more competitive in the open bidding market as the company became a Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE). Ms. Sturtevant became President and majority owner, with Mr. Raye as Vice President of Finances and minority owner. The philosophy of the company remains the same: to bring together highly qualified management staff and craftspeople in a culture of quality and customer service.

 2012  2011 saw the retirement of Donald W. Raye from CCB after spending nine years as Vice President of Finance and minority owner. As the result, Marc Belanger, Jr., and Sean Ferguson joined Beth Sturtevant as owners of the 67 year old company. Together, Mr. Belanger, Vice President of Operations, and Mr. Ferguson, Vice President of Finance, purchased shares of the company vacated by Mr. Raye after his retirement. Ms. Sturtevant remains as President and majority owner.

CCB, Inc. Today

CCB's service lines have grown to encompass all phases of construction, plus site services, materials handling, the installation, repair and maintenance of equipment, capital improvements, new construction, the renovation and/or alteration of existing facilities, and overall construction management.
