Nutter Enterprises, Inc., a spin-off of a logging business, was founded by Ken and Lynn Nutter in the mid 1950s. While Ken pursued site projects, Ethelyn managed all aspects of the office operations. Ken purchased several tracts of land over the years, and eventually Gilmanton Sand & Gravel was founded. For decades, the company focus was on residential and town projects then later included state and commercial projects.
In 1974, their son Bill joined the company after graduating from the University of New Hampshire with an engineering and business administration degree. In 1981, Bill procured two projects that would define the next decade for the company, Southdown Shores in Laconia, New Hampshire and Samoset in Gilford, New Hampshire.
In 1983, Bill purchased the excavation portion of the business from his father and a decade of expansion and prosperity followed. With the recession of the late eighties, Bill focused on the gravel operations and developed it into the commercial business it is today providing quality aggregate products for local contractors and residential homeowners.
In 2000, Bill’s son, Craig joined the company after completing his education at the University of Central Florida. With a natural acumen, he quickly mastered all aspects of the operations and is now vice-president and supervises and manages site projects throughout the Lakes Region.
In 2010, Cindy Nutter joined the team as safety coordinator and office manager. Cindy quickly became an integral part of the team with her twenty plus years of experience in the clerical and legal profession.
In 2016, Jennifer Nutter Pilarz joined the company after graduating from the University of Central Florida. With her accounting degree, Jennifer manages office operations and is vice-president of Gilmanton Sand & Gravel.
