NORMA Group offers products and solutions for a wide variety of different industrial applications. Thanks to the combination of expertise in the processing of both metal and plastics, and the broad diversification of its product portfolio, NORMA Group is able to offer its customers a comprehensive range of solutions to different problems from a single source. This sets the Group apart from competitors who predominantly specialize in individual product segments or regions.

With the strategic business units Water Management and Industry Applications in the Standardized Joining Technology (SJT) distribution channel, NORMA Group operates in a market environment with suppliers of comparable standardized products. It differentiates itself from them in particular through its well-established brands in the market, which are the result of a targeted brand policy geared to the regional needs of customers. Furthermore, NORMA Group has also received several awards from customers for its service quality. NORMA Group provides its trade customers with a comprehensive range of products in the areas of Water Management and Industrial Applications that is geared toward end customer needs.

In the Mobility & New Energy strategic business unit, as well as in the Engineered Joining Technology (EJT) segment, and in particular in the area of FASTEN and FLUID, NORMA Group operates in a highly fragmented market in which numerous specialized industrial companies are active. In this environment, NORMA Group positions itself as a provider of customized, value-creating solutions that are the result of long-term development partnerships, and thus geared to the customer’s specific requirements. NORMA Group distinguishes itself from its mostly regional competitors with its international business alignment and its cross-industry customer base, in particular. Thanks to its strong focus on innovation, NORMA Group offers its customers products that are particularly resistant to temperature and pressure as well as optimized in terms of weight and assembly time.

A clear structural change has been taking place in NORMA Group’s traditional core business, the automotive industry, for a number of years. The Company positioned itself in the field of electromobility at an early stage and is closely monitoring current developments and trends in order to be able to seize positioning opportunities immediately. NORMA Group has a broad product portfolio with customized products and system solutions for applications in electric and hybrid vehicles. For the most part, they are manufactured at its existing production facilities and on the same equipment on which the traditional products for gasoline and diesel vehicles are manufactured. In addition to cooling systems for cars, commercial vehicles and charging infrastructure, these also include solutions for thermal management in batteries and media-carrying systems, fasteners and connectors for hydrogen vehicles. In this respect, the Group believes it is well equipped for the transformation to mobility based on alternative drive systems.
