Ethan Blair is the grease that literally keeps EA Quinn running. As Fleet Manager/Equipment Supervisor he and his team oversees all the maintenance and repairs for equipment…and it’s a lot to keep track of 50 registered vehicles, 20 trailers, 31 heavy pieces of equipment ,17 lawn mowers, fertilizer spreaders and 200 pieces of 2 cycle equipment (blowers, line trimmers, hedge trimmers, brick saws). Ethan makes it look easy with a systematic process that he has implemented to keep track of all the maintenance and repairs. This proactive approach is one of the reason that EA Quinn can provide quality work for our customers – as our crews have the proper equipment and it is maintained well!
Even before Ethan graduated from High School, he began his career in 1986, as a mechanic for a very large John Deere dealer in Franklin CT. He realized very quickly that he loved working on machinery and he had a knack for it and has never looked back. From the John Deere Dealership, he went to work for Dufford Equipment. Ethan met John Dufford when he was helping John load some John Deere equipment that he purchased onto his truck and John offered him a job on the spot! The next stop for Ethan was with Industrial Air Flow Dynanic (IAFD) as fleet manager. When that business was sold, ED Quinn bought the building which now houses EA Quinn Headquarters. Again fate intervened and Ed recognized Ethan’s talent and ability and as they say the rest is history.
Over the years he has earned certifications from many small equipment manufacturers like Husqvarna and Stihl and is always staying on top of the newest updates and technologies.
Here are EA Quinn we like to say he is genius… there is nothing he can’t fix!
Ethan lives in Windham with his two daughters Morgan and Danielle. In his spare time he enjoys wood working.
