My father established the Paquin's automotive business in 1947.  From 1971 to 1980 I  worked at Paquin's Plymouth Center and In 1981 I took ownership of Paquin Motors.  In 1992 I took ownership of Burt Paquin Ford and by 1998 I established North Country Nissan.  

    I am proud to work with an excellent staff and with our valued customers who are part of the Paquin's Auto Park family.  I have been in the automotive industry for many years and I know how important it is to provide our customers with the best customer service experience every step of the way.  We want to be the loyal dealership of Saint Albans, Franklin County and the greater Burlington area for all of their automotive needs. We stand by our customers not only during the sale, but long after the ownership of the vehicle.


    I was born in Burlington but I currently I reside in West Swanton.  I graduated from Rice Memorial High School and UVM.  For two years, I was First Lieutenant for the US Army Core of Engineers.  I am a proud father of two children, Burt and Jen who are also part of the family owned and operated business.
