About Us

Fairbanks Mill is a well-established, 40 year old, hydroelectric millwright general contracting company based in St. Johnsbury, VT, focusing on complex multi-faceted projects in both industrial and commercial sectors. We are versatile, blending our varied skills with those of our talented and dedicated team of subcontractors, suppliers, and design professionals. Our employees with over 37 years of hydroelectric experience are passionate about creating value for our clients, efficiently delivering quality projects, on time, and within budget.

The fact that most of our work comes from existing clients speaks to the durability and trust inherent in those relationships. Our client list includes a virtual who’s who of New England utilities, many of Vermont’s premier manufacturers and institutions, and a wide variety of government agencies.

Established in 1979, Fairbanks Mill began conducting work in water power in a wide variety of projects including concrete, site work, carpentry, and landscape construction. Currently, Fairbanks Mill is headquartered in the former Fairbanks Scale factory, in St. Johnsbury. On September 7, 2018, the business was purchased by Brandon Boudreau, of Bradford, Vermont. Brandon will carry Fairbanks Mill forward with the same quality and integrity. Brandon worked for Fairbanks Mill a number of years ago, went on to work for TransCanada on the Connecticut River hydro stations for over 8 years, while also providing maintenance and repair services to several independent power producers in his spare time.

Brandon has vast experience with the big turbines, while still maintaining sensitivity to the special needs of the “mom & pop” operations. Services that Fairbanks Mill provides range from turbine overhauls and repairs, penstock replacements, and trash rake installations, to environmental improvements such as fish passages, minimum flow systems and canoe portages.
