Noury Peykar founded Nourison with his four sons in 1980. The name Nourison was a combination of “Noury” and “sons” and a tribute to their father and his legacy. They founded Nourison with little means, but were fortunate enough to build a successful company that has become a leader in their industry and has continued to grow over the past 35 years.

Noury Peykar still came to the Saddle Brook office on most days. He was a kind person and greeted everyone with a warm smile and a friendly wave. It is with much sadness that the Nourison family makes this announcement. Mr. Peykar will be missed.
