Noorduyn

The Noorduyn Aircraft Ltd., founded by Robert B. C. Noorduyn, was established in Canada in early 1934 by taking over the Curtiss-Reid factory outside of Montreal, Quebec. Work soon started on the Noorduyn Norseman I. Versions II through VI followed until early 1946, when the company was acquired by the Canadian Car & Foundry (CCF) company.

During World War II Noorduyn began producing Harvard trainers for the Royal Canadian Air Force, production of which continued under CCF after the takeover. In May 1953, CCF sold all rights to the Norseman to a specifically formed company, Noorduyn Norseman Aircraft Ltd., which provided support to the currently operational aircraft.

In the present day, Noorduyn specializes in aircraft interior storage systems for commercial aircraft (galley carts, carriers, drawers, oven inserts, bins, bassinets, etc.), and slings and containers of military transport use.
