About Us

Tom Herron, of Northwood Modular Homes Inc., has dedicated himself to quality construction for over 46 years.  A brief tour through his life-long home town of Cass City, Michigan illustrates his commitment to work of the highest quality.  Included in his portfolio are three single family subdivisions, a condominium community, multiple large commercial projects and many smaller projects within the Cass City area.  Tom has built more than 500 homes. With this list of accomplishments, it’s understandable why he became the largest residential and commercial contractor in the Thumb Area.

Besides working in the construction business, Tom has raised five daughters and has eight grandchildren.  A very active man within the community, Tom served 9 years as Chamber of Commerce President, 2 years as Lions Club President, and Charter President of the Thumb Builders Association. He also served on the Cass City Downtown Development Authority Board and the Cass City Economic Development Board.  Tom was awarded the Cass City "Lion of the Year" award in 1977 and the "Cass City Citizen of the Year" in 1983. In the December 1999 issue of the local Cass City Newspaper, the editor named Tom as one of the top ten influential people of the century.

One of Tom's more recent endeavors, (and further testament of his dedication) was to become involved in the modular home market in 1996.  Future homeowners are searching for more value for their dollar and Tom believes it can be done with modular housing. "I began building out of a desire to create a quality home for people," Herron said. I believe that if you work hard and give people good service, the rest will take care of itself." At the Ritz-Craft Corporation Annual Presidents Advisory Meeting in November 2001, Northwood Modular Homes was awarded the Top Builders Award.

Tom runs the family business with the assistance of his wife, Linda, one of their daughters, Barbara Graham, and one son-in-law, Richard LeValley. His longtime crew offers over 90 years of combined experience.  Northwood Modular Homes now serves homebuyers within 60 miles of Cass City with hundreds of customizable floor plans.
