Jules Poirier of Avon, owner of Jules Poirier Co. LLC, received two awards from the Better Business Bureau Nov. 1 during BBB’s 100th Anniversary Awards Gala & Annual Meeting.
Poirier is the second generation owner of Jules Poirier Co. LLC, an Avon-based contracting business that specializes in roofing, siding, gutters, windows and doors.
One award he received honors Jules Poirier Co. LLC as a member of the Better Business Bureau’s Premier Accreditation Circle.
“We’ve been accredited since 1977 – 35 years,” Poirier said. “We’re the third-longest existing member of the circle, and we have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.”
Poirier also received an award for serving two three-year terms on the bureau’s board of directors.
“It was a good experience, very educational,” he said.
One highlight of Poirier’s tenure as a board member was when he spoke at the state capitol about the Better Business Bureau’s crusade against unregistered contractors.
Previous BBB awards Jules Poirier Co. LLC has won include 30+ years of ethical service, and best website.
“We stand proudly behind the craftsmanship that has established us as an outstanding company in our field in the Farmington Valley,” Poirier said. “Providing increased energy-efficiency along with maintenance-free windows and vinyl siding are our specialties.”
Jules Poirier Sr. started the business in 1955 and his son took over the reins in 1996. A third generation, college student Julia Poirier, helps out part-time.
Poirier’s charitable causes include Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Lupus Foundation of America. He will host a lupus fundraiser the night of March 23 at Bridge Street Live in Collinsville.
