Nord Drivesystems expands Pune facility


PUNE:  Nord DriveSystems announced the expansion of its current facility at Hinjewadi, Pune. Vikram Kumar (IAS) Metropolitan Commissioner, PMRDA inaugurated this new facility.  Also present at the occasion were Jutta Humbert, Managing Partner, Nord Drivesystems Group, P L Muthusekkar, MD, Nord Drivesystems Pvt. Ltd amongst other dignitaries.

As of today Nord Drivesystems India’s manufacturing facility has an installed capacity of 42000 Geared motors per annum plus a 22000 Electrical Motor Assembly with a utilization factor between 
 75 to 80%.  These requirements are served through two of our Nord production plans, one in Hinjewadi MIDC Phase II started in Nov 2007 and the second facility in Hinjewadi MIDC phase I which was established in the year Oct 2017. Considering the consistently growing Indian market and Nord India consolidating its presence further, the management has taken a decision to further increase its production capacity especially for the large gearboxes & IGU (Industrial Gearbox Units).

The newly acquired plant expansion is just adjacent to our existing Nord Drivesystems plant with a connecting road in between. It is spread on an area measuring 7211 sq.mtrs whilst the building area is 3213sq.mtrs. This will be Nord India’s third facility in row. Nord India plans to use this new available space for the production of the large gearbox assemblies whose demand is continuously increasing in the domestic market. It will also accommodate a bigger warehouse to support the proposed large gearbox production, making way for more production space in the existing building for medium size geared motors.

Last year Nord India Motor production facility had also got approved by BIS, Quality governing body under Govt. of India for ISI marked Motor production which recently has being enhanced further to include all Motor ranges upto 55 KW ratings.
Further with time, Nord India plans to include new Gearbox variants into its production portfolio like Industrial Gearbox Units (IGU) production along with specialized paint shop facility. With full commissioning of this new facility, Nord India would be covering almost 90% of the offered Nord catalogue products locally from Pune for the domestic market as well as SAARC countries. Growing at about 20% CAGR for last 8 years and making in India  & making in Maharashtra for last 14 years.
