Induction into the Industry Hall of Fame - Normand Caissie

Mr. Normand Caissie, or Norm as he prefers to be called, left his home in the small fishing village of Richibucto, N.B.and graduated with a BAA from the University of Moncton in 1975. After a short stint with the Bank of Montreal and then Seagram’s, he returned home to start his own business.

His family was in the HVAC business for three generations, so manufacturing venting and duct work were a natural fit for Norm. Today, as President & CEO he is responsible for the strategic and financial direction of the Imperial Manufacturing Group Companies which includes Imperial Sheet Metal Ltd., Imperial Kool-Ray Inc., Imperial Heat Care Products Inc. and Kel-Kem Ltd. This past year Norm was a finalist in the Ernst & Young Atlantic Region Entrepreneur of the Year Award and Imperial won in the category of business to business products and services.

Norm was joined by his wife Alma and several members of his management team for his induction into the Industry Hall of Fame.
