Dr. H.B. North,
1921 - 1954

In 1921, Dr. H.B. North founded North Metal & Chemical Company for the manufacture of tungsten and molybdenum compounds and other rare earth elements. Reorganized in the 1930's as a commercial production facility, NM&C became a critically important supplier of Tungstic Acid during World War II. Development of new applications for molybdenum additives in subsequent decades prompted major expansions in 1965, 1977 and 1986. By 1977, NM&C was the largest domestic producer of sodium molybdates and it still is.

NM&C is a recognized equal opportunity employer with a proven commitment to high ethical and business standards. The company's leaders strive to provide a pleasant, productive and professional work environment; to provide each employee the respect and dignity they deserve; to give each employee an opportunity to give the company their best effort and to recognize and reward those efforts.
