-Noront Steel was established in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada in response to the growing demand for fabricated steel products by the area's mining industry.
- In 1945 Mr. James Nemis and a small group of his International Nickel Company (INCO) co-workers recognized this growing demand and began fabricating steel furnaces in a small garage in the city’s West End.
-The demand for their products continued to expand, so Mr. Nemis and his team decided to take the plunge and commit themselves to their steel fabricating business full time. Bruce Warkus
