Derek's Success Story

Driving through the back roads of Topsham, VT, it’s not easy to miss Flint Motorsports, as the lot is almost entirely covered by small machinery: lawn mowers, small tractors, and snowblowers. Some of which are housed there permanently, but most have recently been repaired and are getting ready to be shipped back to a Home Depot or Tractor Supply located throughout Vermont and New Hampshire.
