40 years of drives.

Since the beginning of the 1980s, NORD Drivesystems operates its own electronics production. For more than 40 years, the company has been developing drive electronics and is one of the pioneers in innovative inverter technology. At the Aurich, East Frisia (D), the drive specialist produces electronic drive technology up to 160 kW (inverters, motor starters and electronics).

NORD electronics production in Aurich
The manufacturing of drive electronics in Aurich began in the early 1980s. Over time, the production plant and the portfolio were continuously expanded and extended. The company now employs 180 people (plus another 40 people in development) and has a manufacturing capacity of 400,000 units – be it control cabinet inverters or decentralised frequency inverters (up to 22 kW).

The automated and flexible production structure in Aurich is state-of-the-art and allows any size of order to be processed in the same manner. Even small batch sizes are possible thanks to flexible production. In 2022, 185,000 units left the factory, and the trend increases. The demand for customised drive electronics in particular is increasingly strong. To optimally meet the growing demand, NORD invested 2.5 million Euro in the site last year and expanded the area for customer project assemblies to 3,000 m2, distributed over two levels. In total, the production area is 7,000 m2 and the office area 1,300 m2.

Whether they are operated in Europe, China or the US – every NORD frequency inverter is produced in the NORD production plant in Aurich, Site manager Gerhard Harms: “Frequency inverters are a fundamental component of efficient and intelligent drive systems. In Aurich, we can respond quickly and flexibly to customer requirements and market changes and are ideally equipped for the increasing demand.” The expansion plans are far from complete: The purchase of an adjacent site with an area of 1.8 ha secures further expansion of the Aurich site.
