nora Qualität Made in Germany

Company

Made in Germany

nora systems has been producing floor solutions exclusively in Germany for more than 70 years. The complexity of the rubber materials and the special requirements for employee know-how have created the basis for high-performance floor solutions of the highest quality over many years.

For us, Made in Germany means – in addition to quality products – the implementation of sustainable standards at our production site. The work environment and the motivation of our highly qualified employees play a central role in all areas, as do energy efficiency and environmentally responsible production.  However, this also includes sustainable raw material acquisition and the green logistics of many components, which we have incorporated into our processes and actively manage.

We have built core services such as R&D, product management, application engineering, and logistics around this highly technological and flexible production process. This ensures – through close cooperation with our employees on site – that your requirements are integrated into our solutions, giving you the assurance that nora’s services offer the right solution at the right place and the right time.
