Missing Our Colleague – Rich Carageane
It is with heavy, sad hearts that Portland Stone Ware regrets to announce the passing of our dedicated friend and employee of seven years, Richard Carageane of Highland, NY. Rich lost his brave battle to cancer on July 14, 2021, surrounded by his children and family. We pray for his family in their hour of grief.
Portland Stone Ware will be forever grateful for his dedication, his motivation, and perseverance. He was one of the “good guys”.

With Deep Sympathy,
The Crew at Portland Stone Ware Co., Inc.
COVID-19 Protocol (Updated)
Since March 2020, the Portland Stone Ware team has been following government protocols and practicing social distancing. We are taking every precaution to manage the health and safety of our employees and plan to continue to be here to serve you, our customers. We thank everyone for their continuing support and efforts to keep our environment safe.
CUSTOMER PICK UPS: Weekdays from 8:00am to 3:30pm. Please pull up to the shipping receiving office before entering our yard. Upon arrival, drivers should remain in their trucks. Our office personnel will bring the paperwork out to the driver. If no one comes out please call the office 800-343-0001 with the order number you are picking up. Drivers will then be instructed to drive into the yard where they can prepare their truck for loading. When the truck is ready for loading, the driver should then return to their truck and wait inside the truck as our yard personnel load. Upon completion, our personnel will pass any required paperwork to the driver through the window and will signal the driver to pull out onto the street in front of our building to tie down the load and move on.
OUR PRODUCT DELIVERIES TO CUSTOMER LOCATIONS: We are instructing our drivers to call in advance to arrange deliveries. We are instructing our drivers to remain in their vehicle during any wait time or while unloading occurs.
VENDOR DELIVERIES: We will ask the drivers to unstrap and go back into their cabs. Paperwork will be passed through the open cab window of the truck for signing purposes. We will unload and motion the driver to leave without physical contact.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation during this trying time.
To sustain the increasing sales volume and demand, Portland Stone Ware will build a new, second facility on an adjacent property. Design-build construction management firm, Jewett Construction out of Raymond, NH, has been selected to manage the construction, which began on September 18th, 2017. Portland Stone Ware chose Jewett Construction because like PSW, they are a family-owned company with a long history of client satisfaction and delivering a high-quality product. PSW looks forward to partnering with Jewett on this special project.
Portland Stone Ware Announces the Retirement of Two Long Time Employees
Walter Kolodziej, since November of 1976, had been expertly representing Portland Stone Ware’s products throughout the New England and Mid-Atlantic states as a Sales Representative.
Vicki Zimmerschied came on board in September 1980 as Director of Purchasing.
Both Walter and Vicki have dedicated their lives to the growth of Portland Stone Ware for which we will be forever grateful. They are not just employees, they are considered part of the family and will be sorely missed. We wish them the very best in their new journey of retirement!
On their last day, Ken Johnson, a friend and long-term truck driver with Portland Stone Ware, presented both Walter and Vicki with hand-crafted and hand-painted clocks depicting a clipper ship that represented vessels that used to travel between Portland, ME and Boston, MA transporting product for Portland Stone Ware.
