It was in Sweden, nearly 40 years ago, when Nord-Lock first started manufacturing wedge-locking washers. The company is now part of the Nord-Lock Group and global provider in wedge-locking washers and its well-known Superbolt line.
Nord-Lock recently inaugurated its updated production facility in Mattmar, Sweden. The inauguration is the third in 2021 — a result of the Group’s focus on expansion to meet increasing demand.
By expanding, Nord-Lock will create new and more efficient production lines, introduce new machines with more automation, and offer better premises for optimized workflows.
Additionally, less than two weeks ago, the Group’s brand-new unit was inaugurated in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which will be the base for the company’s Superbolt production and U.S. sales offices.
“We are seeing a sharp increase in demand for our solutions from customers all over the world, and to ensure future needs, we have expanded our three largest units during the pandemic and invested in state-of-the-art equipment,” said Fredrik Meuller, President and CEO of Nord-Lock Group.
Also, in February, the Group’s CEO Fredrik Meuller inaugurated Expander’s operations in Åtvidaberg, Sweden, with a doubled production area to meet market demand for, among other things, pivot pins.
The most recent expansion of Nord-Lock’s operations in Mattmar, Sweden, was inaugurated by Governor Marita Ljung, Investment AB Latour’s CEO Johan Hjertonsson, as well as the Group’s CEO Fredrik Meuller. The facility is the heart of Nord-Lock Group and has now a significantly larger production area and a new office building.
“The new facility ensures long-term production capacity and provides us with a good basis for continued focus on innovation and development of world-leading bolting solutions,” added Meuller. “The focus for the expansion has been to create sustainable production and create a better working environment for our employees.”
