The ever-increasing demand for electronic components calls for the expansion of the NORD Electronic DRIVESYSTEMS website in Aurich, Lower Saxony. Until the last stage of expansion, NORD will triple the production capacity of its subsidiary
Since the early 1980s, NORD Electronic DRIVESYSTEMS has been producing electronic components in the city of Aurich in East Frisia, especially frequency inverters. “Demand for customized configured devices has increased significantly in recent years,” said site manager Gerhard Harms. Therefore, the company decided to significantly expand the plant in Aurich.

Two stages of expansion
The space for installation of clients’ projects is to be expanded to 3000 sq.m, distributed on two floors. It is planned to increase the production capacity from 140,000 to more than 400,000 units in the final stage of expansion. The first capacity increase of 50 percent will be implemented in the second quarter of 2022.
Commitment to the site
The entire Aurich expansion requires a financial effort of around € 3.2 million. “This investment is not only due to the growing importance of electronic components for NORD,” said Gerhard Harms. “This is also a clear commitment of the company to the Aurich website.”
