AURICH, GERMANY — NORD Electronic Drivesystems plans to eventually triple its production capacity at its facility in Aurich, Germany.

The continuously increasing demand for electronic components necessitates expanding the site, the company said.  

Since the beginning of the 1980s, NORD Electronic DRIVESYSTEMS has been producing electronic components in the East Friesian district town of Aurich, especially frequency inverters.

“The demand for customized configured devices has increased massively in recent years,” said Gerhard Harms, site manager. Therefore, the company has decided, to significantly expand the plant in Aurich.

The space for assembly of customer projects is to be expanded to 3,000 square meters, distributed over two floors. Production capacity is planned to increase from 140,000 to more than 400,000 units in the final expansion stage. The first capacity increase of 50% will be put into action by the second quarter of this year.

The whole expansion in Aurich demands a financial effort in the region of 3.2 million Euros.

“This investment is not only due to the increasing importance of electronic components for NORD, it is also a clear commitment by the company to the Aurich site,” Harms said.
