Nord Drivesystems is celebrating after opening a new factory in McKinney, Texas. Following Waunakee in Wisconsin, Charlotte in North Carolina and Corona in California, this is the fourth US site for the supplier of drive technology. 

The facility will offer pre-sales, warehouse, assembly and aftermarket services in the Southern region of the USA, complementing its other sites in supporting customers throughout the entire United States.

The McKinney site is located northeast of Dallas. Capacities for assembly, service and customer experience are located on an area of 7,900 square metres. Immediately after the completion of the first construction phase in June 2023, the manufacturing of unpainted gear units started. 

During the second construction phase, further assembly areas were added, so that the factory now features 10 assembly cells. With the completion of the last construction phase, the site got a painting system with which gear units can now undergo different surface treatments. In the future, up to 200 units will be completed per shift.

Torsten Schultz, president, Nord USA said customer proximity is essential for the company. With its global network, the drive specialist is represented in more than 80 countries. With this, Nord offers short delivery times, competent advice and rapid on-site service to its customers. 

The new site in Texas not only completes Nord’s presence in the USA, which now extends in all four directions of the compass. Texas is considered one of the current booming regions in the USA. With a gross domestic product of about 2.6 trillion US dollars (2023, Statista), the State ranks among the top 10 national economies.

Funded by investment-friendly politics, many companies from national and international traditional and future-oriented industries currently locate here. For Nord it is the ideal location for being close to its customers. From here, it will primarily supply its motors, gear units and frequency inverters to customers from logistics, food, electronics or mechanical engineering industries.
