LaMar Noorda grew up in the sheet metal business, working inhis father’s sheet metal shop in Salt Lake City. His dad’s company, founded in the late fifties, did ductwork, ornamental ironwork and specialty sheet metal products. When LaMar came to Las Vegas in nineteen eighty nine, he spent six years working for a company who was one of the first sheet metal contractors in the area to become a Berridge Licensee. LaMar quickly realized the potential of architectural sheet metal and founded Noorda Sheet Metal Company in 1994. Since then, the Las Vegas area has grown at a phenomenal rate. Most of Noorda Sheet Metal Company’s work is in the commercial infrastructure rather than the large hotels and casinos.
New schools, shopping centers, offices and other facilities have contributed to Noorda’s rapid growth. The company has completed more than 3,000 projects over the past thirteen years.
In describing his company’s business philosophy, LaMar Noorda says, “Our project experience over the past thirteen years provides us with the expertise to give the architect and building owner exactly what they need….and Berridge supports us with the product, technical and warranty support which we need to compete in our market!
