NORD Drivesystems AU


NORD Drivesystems AU is a 100% owned subsidiary of Getriebebau NORD GmbH & Co. KG, Bargteheide, Germany. Getriebebau NORD is the second largest manufacturer of Helical geared motors internationally. NORD are the pioneers of the modern Helical geared motor design and specification, which in 1981 was released as the ground breaking “Unicase “ series. This Geared motor specification revolutionized Helical geared motor design, and remains little unchanged after 30 years. The Unicase design has also been widely imitated by other geared motor manufacturers.

Getriebebau NORD has 100% owned assembly and sales facilities in 35 countries outside Germany. There are another 98 countries where NORD products are assembled or distributed by service agents and distributor networks. NORD also design and manufacture cabinet mount and de-centralised frequency inverters, and all NORD electric motors. All of NORD’s gearbox and frequency inverter products are exclusively manufactured in Germany only.

NORD Drivesystems Au commenced trading activities in Australia early in 2009, with establishment of a brand new facility at Derrimut, situated in Melbourne’s western freight corridor. The facility incorporates the most modern tooling and presses for assembly of Helical geared motors seen anywhere in Australia. All of the NORD assembly procedures including the Quality Assurance programme, mirror those completed in Germany, and these procedures are also mirrored throughout all of NORD’s international assembly facilities. The Derrimut premises house a large range of NORD products in bare component form to support the assembly lines. The factory and sales computer systems utilized in Australia are the identical systems as used in Germany and internationally. A NORD service operation is also accommodated in the factory for all after sales service, and for any possible warranty inspection and repairs.
