Our Areas Of Service & Expertise Include
Secondwind was born in reaction to the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989. (Read the story here.) Founder, Crispin Fletcher, had sailed in Prince William Sound and developed a special relationship with the area. When the spill happened, Crispin turned his feeling of deep sadness and helplessness about the environmental disaster into action by forming a company that could help clean up the water here in New Hampshire. He was joined by his wife, and now President, Christine Fletcher, and friend, Jan Beauvais. For 25 years we’ve been at the helm, growing the company from 3 employees and a handful of customers to a company that has over 9,000 customers throughout the region, put $53 million back into the economy and supported NH families through $21 million in payroll.
Christine is both a water geek and small business addict. As a Water Quality Association Certified Water Specialist, Level 6, and NH Certified Water Operator, Christine has shown her commitment to being technically competent. In her spare time Christine usually has dirt under her nails with the smell and sounds of a diesel tractor not far away.
Jan is an expert in water treatment. He has 25 years of practical experience, a must in this particular art, is a Level 6 WQA Certified Water Specialist, A New Hampshire licensed Public Water Operator with extensive studies in the field of Public Water Treatment. He holds the first Water Treatment Technician license issued by the NH Dept. of Safety – Plumbing Board.
As Founder, Crispin has held many roles at Secondwind. He is now focusing on Business Development, which includes looking for new opportunities that fit our capabilities, and deepening our relationships with our customers and business partners. While gardening, cycling, kayaking, and Nordic skiing are his ideal pursuits; his ever-expansive home project ideas keep Crispin around the homestead most of his free time and in his workshop or on a ladder.
