Barrett Trucking Co., Inc. Company History

 
The company was founded in 1934 by U.J. Barrett as Barrett Coal and Ice Co.

Gradually, in 1963 U.J. started with dump trucks hauling aggregate products around Chittenden County and in 1969 he diversified into road salt distribution. In 1972, his three sons John, George and James Barrett assumed control of Barrett Trucking Co., Inc. with an emphasis on aggregate and road salt distribution. In July 2013, the third generation took control. Now Joe, Scott, and Brian are continuing the legacy.

Barrett Trucking Company Inc., currently owned and operated by George, John and James Barrett in Burlington, Vt., was founded by their father, Ulderic “Frenchy” Barrett in 1936 as Barrett Coal & Ice Company. As the company continues to change hands from one generation to the next, its service remains steadfast throughout the Green Mountain State.
Barrett Trucking Company was the last company to cut ice for refrigeration from Lake Champlain in 1963. With modern refrigeration eliminating the ice market and more and more homeowners switching to alternative heating sources other than coal, in 1964 Frenchy started to diversify the company by purchasing a fleet of dump trucks to haul material around central and northern Vermont.
