History

 

From design to final shipment, from simple brackets to multifaceted assemblies, Noble Industries has been leading the way since 1968 by offering unprecedented flexibility and creativity in metal fabrication of seemingly impossible jobs. Our superior product quality has been the cornerstone to our growth and our history. Noble Industries was founded by William and Anita Parker. The Noble Industries family business that started in a barn with less than 300 sq ft has grown to 70,000 square feet facility on the north side of Indianapolis, Indiana in the town of Noblesville. We have 60+ employees that we consider our most valuable asset. Many have been employed by Noble Industries for over 20 years.

William Parker's philosophy is that "Every Day is Great" and it shows in the success we share with our employees & clients.

Although every year new customers and additional equipment is added, some Noble Industries Milestones are worth document:
