Maine families team up to manage waste
Since being founded by the late Frank Blow in 1953, Blow Bros. septic service has been a family affair. Anchored in Old Orchard Beach, the business was incorporated in 1970, expanding its services to include portable toilets. In 2000, the company merged with the Bestway solid waste service company owned by fellow Old Orchard Beach natives Archie and Paul St. Hilaire. Today, the two families run the business, including at satellite operations in Bangor, Belmont, N.H., and Brentwood, N.H. We recently spoke with James Blow, vice president of the Blow Bros.’ liquid waste division.Your business slogan or mantra is “We’re No. 1 in the No. 2 business.” Are you, in fact, number one in this business?
