The two technology specialists join their forces under the motto “Two Leaders – Customer Focus – Combined Strength”.

Combined strengths for higher customer satisfaction

By means of the cooperation the two partners combine consequently their biggest strengths. In particular, Nireco brings its excellent reputation and its customer relationships that have grown over the years to the alliance. Erhardt+Leimer also offers the highest technological standard in the field of sensor, drive and control technology.
Erhardt+Leimer operates in various industries. Presently, these include the textiles, printing and film industries, paper and tire manufacturing as well as the production of corrugated cardboard and batteries.

In a first step, the new partnership is limited to cooperation in selected industries. These are the printing and paper, film, hygiene, energy as well as the battery production sectors. In future, these selected industries will be provided with high-tech Erhardt+Leimer products for web guiding, web tension and web control via the sales channels of Nireco.
It is the companies’ common goal to meet customer requirements in the Asian region, in particular in Japan, to an even greater extent than in the past by combining their core competences.

Those who know Japan and its high quality requirements for industrial products understand that combining the forces of Nireco and E+L will bring a strategic advantage in competition. Japan is one of the world’s biggest and most innovative national economies. Achieving a strong position and utmost customer satisfaction in the Japanese market must be an integral part of a globalized company’s corporate strategy”, emphasizes

Who we are.

Founded in 2019, Nireco International GmbH can look back on a long tradition as a young company. In 1931, a German engineering company opened a branch office in Japan, which soon developed into the listed company Nireco Corporation. A pioneer in the field of process control and inspection systems. So it is only consequent that, in the course of stronger internationalisation, Nireco returns to the group’s original location with its youngest subsidiary.


The same applies in 2021: Our sights are set on the future!

We celebrate our second anniversary!

The to-do list was not small when we founded Nireco International GmbH on 01.07.2019 in Essen-Kupferdreh. NIG (Nireco International GmbH), the youngest offspring of the Nireco family. In addition to the distribution of Nireco products in Europe, the conformity of the products according to EU and US directives had to be guaranteed. Furthermore, new products had to be developed and manufactured.

However, we met the challenges with high motivation and a lot of fun and pleasure in our work. The reward of commitment ‘We can look back on two successful years. They have brought us together as a team – both personally and professionally’. We are particularly proud of our first in-house developments. We were able to take them from planning to engineering to production readiness. These include the camera sensors ‘NIGduo’ with stereoscopic optics and ‘NIGlas’ with laser. They open up new dimensions of precise and fast measurement of the strip with minimum space requirements.

So there are many reasons to celebrate. At the same time, we would like to thank all our customers and interested parties for the trust they have placed in us. Special thanks also go to our suppliers and business partners. In short, THANK YOU to all those who supported us with all their efforts during the start-up.
