After several years of planning, a new home for Nord-Lock Group’s manufacturing and Americas regional sales organization is open for business in Pittsburgh.  


Previously located in the Carnegie area, the new Nord-Lock Group facility – in Clinton Commerce Park, just five minutes from Pittsburgh International Airport – calls on a number of new features to strengthen our position in the Americas market.  


Key developments include:  

  • 29% increase in total production area to 110,000ft2 (10,219m2 
  • 200% increase in office space to 15,000ft2 (1,392m2 
  • Expansive, streamlined production facility with new machinery and equipment  
  • Training center and hands-on laboratory  
  • On-site gym and cafeteria  
  • Next to Pittsburgh International Airport  


Steve Greenwell (Director, Tensioning Division) says: “This is a facility that we can all be proud of and one that reflects the high standards beneath everything we do, creating the finest tensioning products and positioning ourselves for continued global growth”.  


Peter Miranda (Regional Sales Director, Americas) continues: “This new facility will be key in inviting all of our existing and potential customers to get in-depth product and application training, as well as going behind the scenes to see the amazing engineering work in our production areas.” 


The new facility is an impressive state-of-the-art site and a modern addition to the Pittsburgh area. A clean façade sits proudly among green surroundings, with tall flags and Nord-Lock Group’s custom blue branding meeting your eye from the moment you approach the facility. Inside, the warehouse has a gleaming polished concrete flooring, and no detail has been overlooked in furnishing the offices or finishing the technical learning spaces and laboratory.  


Nord-Lock Group received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development for the project, which included $111,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs and a $29,000 workforce development grant to help the company train its workers. 


It is a significant upgrade in space and quality, testament to the ongoing support and confidence of Nord-Lock Group’s stable and long-term owners, Investment Group AB Latour.  


A new home follows a recent award from The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as one of the ‘Top Workplaces of 2021’,
