Thank you ??? Nercon was founded in 1976 by Jim Nerenhausen, who is still very active in the day by day actively of the business. To date Nercon remains 100% family owned and is managed by Jay Nerehausen. Last year we had 32 million in sales and have been experiencing steady growth over the past 15 years with 80% to 85% repeat business. We have three main facilities, One in Oshkosh, WI --- That serves as our corporate office, assembly floor and panel building area. Most of the controls intensive systems are built in Oshkosh. Two facilities in Oconto, WI --- These serve as our fabrication and main assembly areas, with one building having sixty foot ceiling height for assembly and testing of tall equipment. These large buildings allow for set up and shop testing. This minimizes the installation and field debug time in your plant. Nercon currently has 51 engineers, technicians, designers and programmers. 112 fabrication and assemblers, 7 field service technicians, 10 sales people, 36 administration positions.
Table top conveyors continue to be the workhorse in the packaging industry and represent a significant segment of Nercon’s sales. Nercon has access to most of the major manufacturer’s of table top chain so that we can design and build the conveyor that’s best suited for the application.
Mattop conveyors are another significant segment of the Nercon line of conveyors. They are low maintenance and with the options of flights, high friction and roller top surfaces they offer many solutions to customer needs of elevating and lowering products, in-line accumulation, and also raw product handling.
Nercon has provided miles of belt conveyors over the years that include M-trough and roller trough designs for bulk handling, wide flat belts for patterned transportation of cookies or dough products, belts for cooling products, servo driven belts for collating, merging and diverting, wire mesh conveyors for fines elimination, belts for metal detector applications, or belts with retracting ends for product distribution or rejects.
Sanitary design conveyors are another Nercon option. While all our conveyors for the food and beverage industry take cleanliness into consideration, these units are specifically designed for quick and easy cleaning and include components and designs that are wash-down compatible.
Nercon draws on its experience, including its owner and other key personnel whose experience pre-dates the founding of the company in 1977, as well as its new employees who bring with them new ideas and concepts, to respond to your company’s applications. Whether it’s Accumulators for cartons of snack crackers or for bulk cookies and crackers, Orientors for turning or upending trays, cartons or cases, rinsers and single filers for bottles of salad dressing or coffee containers, case and carton elevators, or laners or diverters for just about any Kraft product, Nercon and Nemco have, and will continue to provide solutions.
