In the summer of 2000, we were given the opportunity to supply roof trusses and crane time for a project that aired on the television show "Hometime". A very elaborate garage that incorporated attic trusses, floor trusses, LVL's and metal hangers.
We are currently one of the largest truss manufacturers in the area. We supply trusses for projects from Grand Forks, ND to Watertown, SD and from Bismarck, ND to Minneapolis, MN on a regular basis. We have also built and supplied trusses for projects in Wisconsin, Iowa and as far as Nebraska.
During our peak season, April to November, N.T.S. will have fifty-five to sixty-five employees on the payroll, providing employment opportunities in the Fargo - Moorhead and the surrounding areas.
During the past few years, Rick Pierce hand-picked and thoroughly trained a top-notch management team. With the passing of Rick on August 25th of 2003, his wife, Deb Pierce took over as the President and Owner of our company. Deb will guide our company in the direction that Rick had intended by working closely with her management team. Northland Truss will carry on in our tradition of providing excellent product and customer service.
Chris Lange assumed the role and responsibilities of General Manager. Chris has been with Northland Truss Systems, Inc. since 1997 and has exceptional work ethics and extensive knowledge of the truss business. Chris will be dividing his time, just as Rick did, between the Fargo Office and the Plant in Abercrombie.
