Gerald Pelletier, who was a farmer, started Gerald Pelletier, Inc. SM, which is an affiliate of Pelletier Brothers, Inc. SM today, after supplementing the family income from as early as the 1950s by hauling logs. Gerald Pelletier, Inc. became incorporated in 1976 and in 1989 took over a wood harvesting operation, which also involved road construction. As each of his sons reached their mid teens, Gerald put them behind the wheel of a truck and when each son came to work in the business, Gerald added another truck to his fleet and the business continued to grow from there.
