NORD Drivesystems expands facility in Pune

Nord Drivesystems announced the expansion of its current facility at Hinjewadi, Pune. The expanded facility was inaugurated by Vikram Kumar (IAS), Metropolitan Commissioner, Pune Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (PMRDA). Also present at the occasion were Jutta Humbert, Managing Partner, NORD Drivesystems Group, and PL Muthusekkar, Managing Director, NORD Drivesystems India amongst other dignitaries.

NORD Drivesystems India’s manufacturing facility has an installed capacity of 42,000 geared motors per annum plus a 22,000 electrical motor assembly with a utilisation factor between 75 to 80 per cent. These requirements are served through two of NORD production plants, one in Hinjewadi MIDC Phase II started in November 2007 and the second facility in Hinjewadi MIDC phase I which was established in October 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 and Industrial Gearbox Units (IGU).

The newly acquired plant expansion is just adjacent to its existing NORD Drivesystems plant with a connecting road in between. It is spread on an area measuring 7,211 sq m whilst the building area is 3,213 sq m.

This will be NORD India’s third facility in a 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.
