Our History

There’s an old saying that goes like this: “The more things change, the more they stay the same”

Bormann Brthers, Inc.There have been significant changes at Bormann Brothers since the days Gus and Henry Bormann experienced the thrill of a two-day moving trip from Somerville (suburban Boston) to Chester, New Hampshire. What passed for “state of the art” in 1917 is very different than what customers have come to expect today. Yet what hasn’t changed is the company’s rock-solid commitment to providing excellence in all facets of moving. From the days of a two truck storefront operation to the current 35,000 square foot location in Pepperell, MA, the Bormann Brothers mission has been un-waveringly steady; provide superior moving and rigging services at the best price. Bormann Brothers has been a family owned business for more than eight decades.

In 1966 Gus and Henry Bormann sold the Company to brothers David and Richard Stapleford.  After the passing of his brother, Richard, in 2007, David made the decision to sell the Company to three key, long-term employees.  Thomas Gleason, Shirley Dupras and John Hay have a combined 40 years of experience with Bormann Brothers and apply the same “family values” to the business that the original founders did. 

The company today serves as an agent for Wheaton Interstate Moving (MC 87113, USDOT 70719) and maintains a full line of road equipment on site, and offers the best of several worlds to clients– the stability of a family-run business that is small enough to know you and large enough to serve your every need.
