Ray Labbe & Sons specializes in site work, which has always been the backbone of our company. Our projects range in size from the small site package for the homeowner to very large multi-acre projects. We have worked with many general contractors and project managers in the southern Maine area and when a structure is not involved, we act as the general contractor ourselves. For the homeowner we provide such services as foundation excavations, installation of septic & water systems, clearing & landscaping, and driveways. For the larger customers, in addition to these services, we provide mass excavation, large cuts and fills, civil site work drainage, and creating retention areas. Ray Labbe & Sons is very environmentally conscious, and we are among a small number of contractors recognized by the state of Maine as a “Certified Erosion Control” specialist.
At Ray Labbe & Sons, demolition and recycling go hand in hand. As we remove an old structure or rehabilitate an existing parking lot, we recycle as much of the waste as possible. Materials such as concrete, brick, and asphalt are crushed and screened, which allows us to size the material to be used in projects such as driveway foundations. Because of the size of our equipment, we are able to quickly and efficiently demolish almost any size structure using excavators, and our large demolition hammers can easily break up concrete or rock foundations.
Over the years, our utility division has grown and prospered, due primarily to strong leadership and a dedicated work force. Ray Labbe & Sons has worked on utility projects ranging from a few hundred dollars to over million dollars, using state of the art equipment for safety and production. These projects include water & sewer lines, storm drains, and underground electrical lines for municipalities, commercial buildings, developments and individual homes. Our utility team is experienced in all phases of underground installation. Whether digging deep or shallow, in wet conditions or tight quarters, our crews have the expertise to do safe, quality construction delivered on time and within budget.

On March 6, 1951 Raymond and Madeline Labbe relocated from the Old Orchard Beach area to the town of Brunswick, Maine. Together they established Ray's Sunoco, a full-service gas station located on the Bath Road. Ray's Sunoco not only sold gasoline and serviced automobiles, but also offered the community other services such as welding and snow plowing. As their business continued to grow, they purchased their first piece of construction equipment, a used front end loader. Ray's Sunoco could now offer excavation services for residential and commercial customers. Not only was the business growing but their family was beginning to grow as well, as Madeline was expecting their second of eleven children.
In 1955 Raymond and Madeline decided to sell the gas station and start operating full time as an excavation company, under the name of Ray Labbe Trucking. They purchased a new D4 Caterpillar bulldozer, two dump trucks, and traded the old loader for a used Trojan backhoe loader. As they kept busy, Ray excavating and Madeline driving trucks, they provided services for local residents, the Brunswick Sewer District, the Town of Brunswick, local contractors, and the Brunswick Naval Air Station. In fact, their first major project was working as part of a team to surface the runways at BNAS when the base was being reopened as a permanent military facility.
As the business grew, Ray Labbe Trucking needed a place to provide sheltered maintenance on its equipment as well as more room for storage of parts and materials. In the 60's, they purchased the former Bay State Ice Cream garage on the Highland Road, a quarter of a mile from their home. Their first four children were girls and as they grew, they helped out more and more with the family construction business, operating equipment and driving trucks. When the next three children, all boys, were old enough, they also began working for the business. Paul, the oldest son, was very young when he started operating equipment for the company. Because he wasn't old enough to have a driver's license, Madeline would deliver the necessary equipment to the job sites for him to operate. Ray was the second son to join the company at an early age and even purchased his own wheeler dump truck right out of high school. Ray has always worked for the family business and, as the years went by, became more involved in the fiscal management of the company. Peter, who started out as a part time employee while also working for the Officer's Club at the Brunswick Naval Air Station, joined his brothers on a full time basis upon graduation from high school.
Paul, Ray and Peter eventually purchased the family business from their parents, and in 1982 incorporated under the current name of Ray Labbe & Sons, Inc. At that time, business consisted of a backhoe loader, an excavator, 2 dump trucks, 2 bulldozers, and a small grader. Every year they purchased more heavy equipment and trucks, which allowed the company to have steady and healthy growth. In 1990 management decided that paving would be a profitable and compatible market to enter, so a paver and rollers were purchased. This turned out to be a sound business decision as paving is now a very important service offered by the company. To ensure an economical and reliable supply of materials necessary for their jobs, the company purchased a gravel pit in Brunswick in the mid-1980's, and later a quarry in Bowdoin in the late 1990's. Not only do these pits support the internal material needs, Ray Labbe & Sons now supplies material to many area businesses, contractors, and homeowners alike with products that are among the highest quality in the region. To round out the services offered by the company, they keep busy during the traditional slow season by providing snow removal to many area businesses. Then in 2013 they also began producing small batches of hot-mix asphalt during the winter months when all other plants in the state are closed for the season. This creates work during the winter and allows Ray Labbe & Sons to maintain a large portion of its workforce when the construction industry in Maine is slow. In 2019 Peter & Paul Labbe decided it was time to pass the torch to some of their long-time employees so they could spend more time with their families. In April of 2019 Robert Walton, Bruce Edgecomb, and Ryan Carrigan purchased the company. Combined, the three have worked for the company for over 60 years. Since doing so they have focused on continuing the company’s reputation for high quality work and being a valuable resource to the community.
