Stay Focused on Innovation

Overcome challenges with manufacturing products more efficiently and responsibly by utilizing our global manufacturing facilities to provide a more sustainable and scalable manufacturing process.

Our global access allows us to use cleaner production methods and source materials from environmentally responsible suppliers. Being cognizant of free trade agreements and other global circumstances also allows us a more comprehensive range of suppliers, including those in emerging markets that may offer more competitive pricing.

Let us manage the production process and suppliers, and you can stay focused on the next innovation.


At Nortech Systems, we have the ability to scale resources up or down quickly to meet rapid demand changes. Our engineering team can help bring your “back of the envelope” design to production, including low-volume/high-mix production quantities, and shift quickly to our global manufacturing facilities for high-volume production while still maintaining quality control.

Strict adherence to maintaining material acquisition, design, and manufacturing documentation ensures that material and process standards are consistent across all facilities. This adherence results in eliminating scale-up issues often associated with increased production volumes.

Partnering with us allows for accurate production at all volume and mix levels so you can stay ahead of the competition.

Responsible Sourcing

By ensuring that suppliers meet specific standards, we can minimize their supply chains’ environmental impacts and help create a more sustainable world. Responsible sourcing leads to reduced pollution, decreased ecological degradation, and resource conservation on a global scale.

Responsible sourcing can also be used as a risk management tool, helping companies avoid reputational damage in the event environmental or social issues arise. Nortech understands the global ESG trend needed for an environmentally sustainable supply chain and is meeting these challenges by utilizing more fiber optics in an effort to reduce copper content.

Source responsibly to create a more sustainable world.

Expansion Through Acquisition

In 1995, Nortech Systems purchased Aerospace Systems in Fairmont, Minn., which opened possibilities for serving the unique needs of defense customers; this company’s proud legacy and operations trace back to 1964. The following year we acquired two established operations from Zercom Corporation: Merrifield, Minn., added proven capabilities and expertise in printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs); those capabilities have now been consolidated into the Mankato Center of Excellence. Intercon 1 offered a well-known, branded product line aimed at the growing machine vision market. Today, Intercon 1’s sales and customer support teams are housed in Asia & North America.

Enhancing our service offering for the high-growth medical market — including life-sustaining Class III devices — motivated our 2010 acquisition of Trivirix’s operations in Milaca, Minn. This site’s distinguished medical pedigree traced back to 1984 when Medtronic founded it.

In 2011, Nortech Systems added a second PCBA operation and valuable customers by purchasing Winland Electronics’ EMS operations in Mankato, Minn. Winland’s notable heritage in electronics manufacturing started in 1972.

This tradition was recently continued in 2015 with the acquisition of Devicix, LLC of Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Devicix, a world-class product development and engineering firm for medical device applications, complements Nortech’s production-driven capabilities for Class I, II, and III regulated devices and gives Nortech a complete, turnkey option for medical device OEMs around the world.
