South Korea is one of the 36 countries, where the NORD DRIVESYSTEMS Group is currently operating with own subsidiaries. The most important products for the South Korean market are bevel geared motors and parallel shaft geared motors. However, the industrial gear unit and frequency inverter business is growing as well. “We primarily supply the intralogistics, petrochemistry, steel production and water treatment industries”, says Managing Director Dong-Wook Kim, who has been leading NORD DRIVESYSTEMS Co., Ltd. Korea since its foundation 10 years ago.

The subsidiary is located in the Banwol Industrial Complex in the city of Ansan, and therefore in close proximity to its most important customers. Ansan is about 30 kilometres from the capital of Seoul. The subsidiary moved there in 2017, when the previous location had become too small. Now, the 17 employees have an area of 3,000 square metres for offices, service and assembly departments at their disposal.

Approximately 4,000 geared motors are manufactured per year. Moreover, the increasing demand calls for further increases in capacity. Kim is very optimistic about the future: “On site, we know the needs of the Korean market very well, and know how to provide our customers with the best solutions for their requirements.”
