|Northwestern Motor Company (NMC) began operations in the 1930's with a line of railroad maintenance equipment. In 1939, the company designed and introduced a rugged tow tractor—and tow tractors remain a core product line. In 1992, NMC acquired the Swinger brand of small front-end articulated wheel loaders. In 1994, the shareholders of NMC purchased Wollard Airport Equipment Company's broad line of aviation ground support equipment, which included baggage belt loaders, mobile passenger stairs, water and lavatory service trucks and maintenance lifts. In 2000, NMC and Wollard Airport Equipment Company combined into one company named NMC-WOLLARD.
||Today, NMC-WOLLARD designs, manufactures, markets and services a broad line of aviation ground support equipment, industrial tow tractors, and front-end articulated loaders/tool carriers. The company is an industry leader in aviation ground support equipment. Its products can be found throughout the world supporting military operations, and commercial and corporate aviation. The company's tow tractors are also customized for use in specialized heavy industrial material handling applications. The company's Swinger front-end articulated wheel loaders are uniquely suited for surface-sensitive applications such as tree care, landscaping and nursery operations.
||Operationally, NMC-WOLLARD is a fully integrated manufacturer with metal fabricating, welding, painting and assembly capabilities. Our comprehensive capabilities help to ensure that our products consistently live up to their reputation of high quality, durability and dependability.
