The W. F. Norman Corporation

WF Norman Since 1898
WF Norman Since 1898
The W. F. Norman Corporation still operates machines as old as the company itself. Production of sheet metal panels are stamped one at a time on antique rope drop hammers.

William Franklin Norman, founder of W.F. Norman Corporation, began one of the most successful businesses in tin ceiling manufacturing. Starting as a traveling salesman for the Wheeling Corrugating Company out of Wheeling, West Virginia, Norman excelled in his work. At that time, Wheeling Corrugating was a large steel mill that also made products from their steel sheets such as roofing and siding. They became the leading tin ceiling manufacturer in the late 1800s. But because of his enterprising nature, Norman decided to open up his own shop and pioneered steel ceiling manufacturing in the West. The same line of Hi-Art® tin ceilings and products are still sold at W.F. Norman Corporation today.
