NORD DRIVESYSTEMS celebrates 50 years in motion

This year the NORD DRIVESYSTEMS Group is celebrating its 50th anniversary! More than 300 industry representatives joined for the celebration at the German headquarters on June 12, 2015. Many others visited the company’s booth at Hannover Meese in April – including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Narenda Modi, Prime Minister of India.

Since its beginning in 1965, NORD has grown from a small local gear manufacturer in Germany to one of the world’s leading drive technology suppliers. Early on, the company established pinion and shaft production facilities, laying down the foundation for the company’s reputation for quality. As NORD continued to grow, the capacity to build in-house gearboxes, motors and vector drives developed, becoming one of only a handful of full-scale drive system manufacturers with a global sales and service network. In addition to being recognized as a leading provider of quality gear units, NORD is a leader in the field of integrated power electronics, offering a comprehensive range of motor starters and vector drives that offer a cost effective solution to customer requirements.

Today NORD employs over 3,200 employees in subsidiaries in 36 countries around the world. Drive engineers provide customer support in 20 languages. Highlighting the continued success, NORD has constructed a new administrative building and extended the production facilities at the German headquarters with a large new paint shop and logistics center and has made many additions and improvements at several other locations around the world.
