Chris LangeGeneral Manager | Partner Northland Truss Systems, Inc.
Northland Truss Systems, Inc. was founded by Rick Pierce in 1992 and started with a handful of Truss Workers, two Truss Designers, one Truck Driver and an Office Manager. Northland Truss designs and manufactures roof trusses and floor trusses for new construction. Alpine Engineering of Pampano Beach, Florida approves all of our truss designs, in addition to furnishing the truss plates for manufacturing our trusses.
Rick Pierce hand-picked and thoroughly trained a top-notch management team. With the passing of Rick on August 25, 2003, his wife Deb Pierce took over as the President and Owner of Northland Truss. Deb guided our company in the direction that Rick had intended by working closely with the management team. In May 2014 Deb sold Northland Truss to the management team which included Chris Lange, General Manager and President; Curt Mathias, Sales Manager and Corporate Secretary; Tim Nicklay, Production Manager and Vice President and Terry Short, Plant Manager and Treasurer.
With new ownership comes new improvements. In spring 2015, a new roof truss table was purchased to increase productivity of roof trusses. Also in 2015, 3 acres of land behind the plant was purchased to have extra storage space for completed trusses and to park trucks and trailers when not out on deliveries.
