NORD´s Australian facility will be inaugurated on 6 October 2011. NORD founder G. A. Küchenmeister will be attending the event.
NORD Drivesystems Australia commenced operations in 2010 with the construction of an assembly hall in the Melbourne suburb of Derrimut and started manufacturing gearboxes and electric motors.
Investments into an extension of the paint facility and a modern drying room followed at the beginning of 2011. The plant also has facilities for geared motor manufacturing.
The production and quality assurance processes comply with the standards of the German parent company. The Melbourne site also functions as a service center.
NORD Drivesystems Australia maintains sales branches in Sydney and Brisbane. NORD Drivesystems is considered one of the leading suppliers of full-scale, comprehensive drive solutions.
NORD was founded in 1965 as a gear manufacturing company by G. A. Küchenmeister and G. Schlicht.
Power electronics and electric motors were later added to the product range, making NORD one of the
few manufacturers that cover the complete spectrum of drive engineering.
NORD supplies motors conforming to the relevant Australian energy efficiency specification MEPS High Efficiency and frequency inverters with C-Tick certification.
