CREATING COLD FOR 50 YEARS
The history of the company starts in 1963. Exactly this year the first refrigerator produced in Ukraine left assembly line. The designed production capacity at the moment of launch was 71 thousand units per year.
In the period from 1975 to 2002 years three plant reconstructions took place. And today the plant`s production capacity for refrigerators is increased by 15 times up to 1 million appliances a year, new manufacturing of cooking and commercial refrigeration equipment established, enterprises for production of basic refrigerator parts are open, trading and service centers are organized. Since 1992 production of kitchen cookers Nord has been started.
In 2002 the company switched to ecologically friendly refrigerant R600a (isobutane) for the production of refrigeration appliances, which does not damage the ozone layer of the Earth and safe for the environment. NORD was first among the plants of the CIS to begin use of isobutane. This transition was caused by the large volumes of refrigerators production for Europe (Germany, France, Belgium) where use of ozone-depleting substances is prohibited.
In the year 2003 – there was compressors plant built and launched in operation. SC "NORD" in cooperation with Italian company BONO has developed and launched the fundamentally new compressor.
