Founder, Noma Industries

Supporting research in complex systems

Tom Beck was born in Hungary in 1926.

As fate would have it, on the day of the outbreak of the Second World War, he arrived in England to continue his education.

He then enrolled in and graduated from the University of London, with a professional engineering degree. He began his career at London Hydro. Shortly thereafter, in 1950, he came to Toronto for a visit and decided to stay. He started the business that would ultimately become NOMA Industries, a leading Canadian and US manufacturer of wire and cable and electrical products.

His philanthropy started at a very early age, and grew exponentially over the years. His, was not only a commitment of money, but also of time, leadership and vision. Although he supported many organizations, his most cherished and abiding link over the years has been to the Weizmann Institute of Science. He was inspired by the breadth and depth of scientific expertise, and saw an organization truly devoted to the betterment of mankind.
