Novum Opens Western Regional Office in San Francisco

In response to the expanding construction market and the large community of architects and contractors on the West Coast, Novum Structures, a Menomonee Falls, Wis.-based architectural enclosure contractor, opened a Western regional office in San Francisco.

"Novum has a long history of building complex glass structures across the Western United States, including the Sea-Tac International Airport in Seattle, Foundry Square in San Francisco and the Reagan Library Air Force One Museum in Simi Valley," said Ian Collins, president of Novum Structures. "The new office allows us to better service the ever-increasing demand for specialty glass structures in the area."

Newly hired western regional manager Ross Deeter, 46, will oversee the San Francisco office's operations. Deeter will manage projects in a 12-state region that includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

He has more than 25 years of experience in the industry, most recently serving as regional sales manager for Verco Manufacturing Company for the past 14 years. Before that Deeter worked for Butler Construction and he began his career as a project manager at Inryco Architectural Metal Panels Company in 1979. He has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from San Jose State University.

"We are very pleased to welcome Ross to the Novum team," Collins said. "His years of industry experience in both sales and project management capacities, coupled with his technical education, will make him the ideal candidate to manage such an exciting region of the country."
