It is with great sadness that we have lost the founder of our company, J. Norman Baker. Norm passed away on December 6, 2020 after a brief battle with Covid-19. Norm started his career working at what was then Kenyon Piece and Dye. Through hard work and determination, he worked his way up the ladder. He worked for Dimension Sailcloth and Putnam Herzel before starting his own business in 1981. In the beginning, he ran it out of his garage, slowly building the company to what it is today, a leading converter and importer/exporter of nylon and polyester materials. His knowledge in the industry will be greatly missed by many. Family meant everything to Norm and he considered his employees as his own family. Our goal, now, is to strive to maintain his legacy in Westmark Corporation and lead it into the next generation. We appreciate everyone that has reached out to us to express their condolences. As Norm said, “The faith of a fabric hangs by a thread”. Sail on, Norm. We will all miss you and you will forever remain in our hearts.
