The NORRES Group, a leading manufacturer of industrial hoses and hose systems, has established a U.S, subsidiary, NORRES North America Inc., in South Bend, IN.
“Indiana and South Bend is for us a favorable location to supply the USA efficiently and safely with our path-finding hose solutions,” said Burkhard Mollen, chairman of the NORRES Group. The new facility will consist of 30,000 square feet on 3.67 acres, which leaves room for a medium-term expansion in manufacturing and logistics.
A NAHAD member, the new subsidiary will soon operate with the manufacturing of various technical hose products for the American market directly in South Bend. In addition to logistic advantages, among others, there are grants from the state of Indiana that make the location especially attractive for the hose manufacturer from Germany.
NORRES names such as Airduc, Barduc, and Norflex have been in use internationally for many years. The company offers more than 20 patents, according to Mollen.
