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 and dependable tow tractor. Various mobile industrial equipment products have been developed, acquired, and divested throughout the years but tow tractors have remained a core product line. More recently, NMC diversified into front-end loaders with the 1992 acquisition of 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 were 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 and VeradyneTM 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 their reputation of high quality, durability, and dependability.
