Charles A Starr Co Inc Biography

During World War II, Charles Starr was manufacturing custom lamps in Los Angeles, CA. If you had a machine shop at that time you were asked to work for the government making whatever was needed for the war, which he did. During that time he met many people in the aircraft industry. When the war was over, Charles got a call from an acquaintance at Douglas Aircraft who asked if he would make an ashtray for their new DC8. They collaborated on various projects for a few years.

During that time he was receiving calls from people in the custom aircraft industry and he started making parts for them as well. All of this was while he was still in the custom lighting business.

In 1969 the Charles A. Starr Co. was officially formed and by 1981 it was incorporated in Van Nuys, CA. Charles' son, Ron, joined the company full time in 1981 as Charles stepped down to retire. Through the years the company has continued to grow. In 1993 the business moved to a larger location in Reno, NV. In 2006 the company moved to a larger location in Sparks, NV where we are now located.
