Norstar came into existence in 2003 when two entrepreneurs, Ray Waldner and Cam Cornelsen, partnered to begin building grain handling equipment. Ray came from a manufacturing background, having worked for Meridian Industries and Friesen of Iowa and brought a unique approach to the business. Cam owned a contracting company but was looking for a change; he brought his passion for sales and marketing to the business. The two partners took a concept and ran with it, building U-Trough bin unloading equipment for the Western Canadian market. The business experienced exceptional growth in a short amount of time; doubling its sales in the first two years.
