North Central Massachusetts Development Corporation Approves Funding for RA Aldrich Trucking of Fitchburg

FITCHBURG – The North Central Massachusetts Development Corp., the economic development arm of the North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce, recently approved a $44,000 loan to RA Aldrich Trucking in Fitchburg to help purchase a 2020 Peterbilt Model 389 tractor to replace the current truck that the Development Corp. funded a few years ago.

“When I started my business three years ago, I applied for a loan to facilitate the purchase of my first truck to make oil deliveries,” said Rafael Aldrich, owner of RA Aldrich Trucking. “With financial assistance and support from the North Central Massachusetts Development Corporation, I was able to update my equipment and continue to grow my business.”
