Jerry Norrod, owner and president of Norrod Builders, Inc. started in the building business in 1976 along with a partner and the company of Norrod and Savage Construction began. The company started out building small homes ranging from 900 to 1500 sq. ft. Many of these homes were built through Farmers Home Administration and several remodeling jobs were done through the HUD program.
In 1978, the company got its Tennessee Contractor license and hired one employee. Most of the work was done by themselves and this employee , and some portions of the work had to be subcontracted. The company began to grow and from 1988 to 1992, it began building homes ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 sq. ft. and hired two more employees. In 1992, the partner left the business and in March of 1993, the business was incorporated as Norrod Builders, Inc. with Jerry Norrod, president and Judy Norrod, secretary.
From 1993 to 1997, the size of the homes being built went up to 6,000 sq. ft. In 1997, the small commercial classification was added to the contractor license and the company built a 90,000 sq. ft. factory building in Byrdstown, TN, a 20,000 sq. ft. medical facility and homes ranging in size from 4,000 to 11,000 sq. ft. At this time, the Tennessee Contractors license was increased to an unlimited monetary limit.
The company did it's business operations out of the home until 1997, at which time, it rented a small 700 sq. ft. office just off the square in Livingston, TN. In March, 1999, the company moved to it's new 10,000 sq. ft. office and storage building on Hwy 111, Algood, TN. At the present time, Norrod Builders, Inc. has 12 employees. This includes two office personnel.
The company is very proud of each of it's employees and the abilities, skills and dedication that each one uses in the success of a completed job. The first employee that was hired in 1978 is still with the company.
