NORD Gear National Headquarters Expansion
NORD Gear is a manufacturer of AC drives, gearboxes, electric motors, and AC vector drives. It has 35 assembly factories worldwide with sales and support in more than 60 countries. Findorff was hired to expand its North American headquarters located in Waunakee. The first phase of the project involved a 60,000-square-foot expansion of its manufacturing space. This allowed for increased rotor production capabilities and brought its machining department up-to-date to meet industry standards. The project’s second phase included the construction of new locker rooms, break room, and training room to double NORD Gear’s existing capacity. A third and final phase required the demolition of the facility’s old break room and locker room.
A unique aspect of the project involved coordinating construction activities while keeping NORD Gear’s existing facility operational. The project team was in constant communication with NORD Gear’s management to keep construction on schedule and to ensure day-to-day business ran without interruption.
