The name Norican is derived from Noricum, an ancient Celtic kingdom that existed in the Austria/Bavaria area circa 15BC ‐ 500AD. This region was famous for its high quality Norican steel, which became the standard within the Roman Empire.
Norican Group remains true to its name by being the world's leading provider of technology and services to improve its customers’ metallic parts. From the “parts formation” phase of a customers’ operation (represented by DISA, our horizontal, match plate & vertical moulding technology offer) through to the “parts preparation” phase for cleaning, strengthening and polishing of the part (delivered by Wheelabrator, our airblast, wheelblast and mass finishing technologies) the Norican Group stands ready to lower its customers’ overall life cycle costs.
Both DISA and Wheelabrator represent over 100 years of expertise and experience, and collectively employ 2500 people in 5 continents, with major operations in Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Poland, Switzerland, UK and USA.
