Abstract

"Focus on the Augusta-Waterville Region" piece on NRF Distributors, headed by CEO Norman Pomerleau, which distributes floor coverings in New England and upstate New York; and on Kennebec Tool & Die, which manufactures machined components. NRF is building another huge warehouse. Kennebec Tool & Die, under CEO Wick Johnson, has laid off about 15 employees over the past two years but projects a 20 percent increase in sales this year. NRF employs state-of-the-art technology to increase its efficiency, and has grown steadily in a flat market. The company stays in the Augusta area because of its dedicated work force. Johnson also praises the local labor force, although his customers are largely outside of central Maine.
