Neal Trask and Charles (Chuck) Decrow founded Trask-Decrow Machinery in February of 1983. Neal and Chuck were employed by Ingersoll-Rand Co. when they formed this equal partnership. With Neal as area manager and Chuck as sales manager they represented the Air Power, Pump Group, Portable Power, Air Tool and Hoist divisions of Ingersoll-Rand Co.
Initially there were 11 employees housed in what was the old shop at 73 Main Street. This building served as a repair facility for portable equipment as well as the sales offices.
In 1987 a new office building, warehouse and service facility were constructed along side the 73 Main Street property. This was being used as our main office, which was 95 Main Street, South Portland, Maine.
Trask-Decrow rapidly grew to become a dominant factor in the Northern New England marketplace.
In September 2001 Neal Trask retired and was bought out by the company. A new ownership team was developed, comprised of Charles R. Decrow, CEO; Greg M. Scott, Vice President of Sales; Ralph A. Wallace, CFO; and Jason C. Decrow, Service Manager.
In 2002 the company underwent a major expansion project. The company formed by the expansion was named NEPCO, LLC and was a majority owned subsidiary of Trask-Decrow Machinery, Inc. This opportunity gave Trask-Decrow Machinery, and its subsidiary, the ability to grow its pump business throughout New England.
In 2005 Trask-Decrow Machinery expanded the Ingersoll-Rand Air Solutions territory to include 4 counties in New Hampshire.
January 2006, Trask-Decrow Machinery merged with its subsidiary Nepco LLC and continued to expand its operations throughout New England as Trask-Decrow Machinery.
January of 2009, we took on the Pentair Pump line including Fairbanks Morse, Aurora, and Myers / Aplex. Then in January of 2010, we added the Weir Specialty Pump line including Roto-Jet & Wemco Pump.
2011 has been a very busy year for Trask-Decrow Machinery. A new logo was designed and the name shortened to TDM.
In August of 2011, TDM moved into a new 25,000 square foot, completely renovated facility on an 8.5 acre parcel of land located at 52 US Route #1, Scarborough, ME. The new facility is a full 20% larger and allows all departments to be under one roof. The service department and shop are located in a 13,000 square foot area serviced by two 4 ton bridge cranes.
In November of 2011, TDM took on the Grundfos / Peerless & PACO Pump lines.
Presently, TDM has 36 employees providing sales, service, and technical solutions to customers throughout New England.
