WHY NOR-CAL CONTROLS?

We’re a community of professionals. Collaborative. Compassionate. Sincere. Many times
Nor-Calians (that’s what we call ourselves) will say that working here feels more like being with family than with coworkers. And when you spend so much of your day with the same people, genuinely enjoying them makes a big difference.

We are fiercely passionate about our company culture, and because of this we look at all aspects of overall fit when hiring new employees. We do this because we know that happy employees make happy customers!

As our founder Bob Lopez says, “What we do isn’t special. How we do it, is.”

HEAR FROM OUR TEAM

Francesca Mota

Associate Operations Analyst

"I was originally hired as a Shipping and Receiving Associate in January 2023, and one year later I am now an Associate Operations Analyst. Nor-Cal has been supportive of my journey to not only growing my career but also myself as a person. When I decided to pursue a college education, everyone was extremely generous in offering support for my education from schedule adjustments to department heads working one-on-one with me, I have always felt that everyone at Nor-Cal has wanted me to succeed. My supervisors have been extremely communicative about my progress and goals, I believe this was a key reason why I was able to be promoted to a Project Coordinator and then as an Associate Operations Analyst. One thing that Nor-Cal never fails at is recognizing and rewarding hard work and talent."

Alix Nakabayshi

Process Optimization Manager

"I was hired in July 2018 as a Documentation Specialist. A year or so in, I volunteered to help implement a workflow system that would take our internal operations and communications to the next level. I quickly became a citizen-developer and a new role was created for me: Operations Analyst. From there, I began collaborating with department heads on continuous improvement efforts, leading to a promotion to Operations Manager. As I began to focus more of my time on those improvement projects, I became our Process Optimization Manager. My growth here has shown me that if you just keep raising your hand, trying to help and learn wherever you can, you will make an impact."

Ryan Pierce

Project Manager I

"In 2019, I was hired as a Control Panel Technician, which was the most enjoyable and fulfilling hands-on job I have ever had in my career. Two years later, I was promoted to Technical Support Administrator in the engineering department. My experience in the support role led directly to an opportunity as a Project Manager, the role I am currently in. My career journey at Nor-Cal can be defined in three words: stability, growth, and recognition. Finding a company with stability in the industry and this magnitude of growth opportunities is nothing short of a miracle. Nor-Cal has provided me an incredible career path that could only exist in an environment where they appreciate, acknowledge, and recognize their employees’ efforts."
