Nortech was established in 1969, originally to import and service parking garage equipment. By 1980 the company had designed and manufactured its own range of inductive loop detectors of such excellence that they became the industry standard and were exported to European markets and later to North America, Australia and the Far East. The international success of Nortech was based on the quality, stability and durability of its products backed by intensive sales and marketing support through a strong and established distributor network. The company continues to invest heavily in research to identify and react to market-driven demand, constantly adapting and adding to its ranges to satisfy international trends and add value to services to customers.
As one of the world's largest suppliers of electronic components for detection, counting, access and control systems for vehicles, traffic and people, Nortech has an installed base in excess of 1,000,000 channels. Nortech components are chosen by most of the larger OEMs and installers of globally branded parking and traffic systems and equipment. Nortech has patents registered throughout the world and in addition to inductive loop products has adopted and successfully integrated other technologies including radio frequency, infra red and optical, into its systems, backed by a proactive development team of electronic and software engineers. Nortech is a world leader in adapted neural network technology.
