NORD Drivesystems celebrates anniversary and opens building extension
Fertigungstechnik NORD now employs a staff of 199. Its growth story began with the production of gear housings on a 2,000 m² floor space. In later years, Gadebusch also became a manufacturing center for shafts and gear wheels, and the cold forming of worm gears. In 2009, the plant began manufacturing NORD's large-scale, modular industrial gear units which are equipped with a one-piece UNICASE housing even for maximum output torques of 229,000 Nm. The Gadebusch plant operates around the clock six days a week, and most production processes are fully automated.
