On February 6, 1978, Nohr Pattern Company opened its doors with the goal of making quality patterns, reasonably priced with quick order fulfillment. After having spent more than 20 years working in other job shops, Don decided to take a chance and venture out on his own. Almost 40 years later Don is still involved in the business although he and his wife of 50 years, Nancy, are starting to slow down. Don’s drive for doing quality work and providing true service to his customers lives on through his son Jim. Working together for over 30 years has truly been special.
