Simmons Machine Tool Corporation is now NSH USA Corporation

Simmons Machine Tool Corporation and Hegenscheidt-MFD Corporation have been partner companies within the NSH Group (Niles-Simmons-Hegenscheidt) since 2001. Simmons designs and manufactures precision machines and automation systems for railway wheel set maintenance and production, while Hegenscheidt-MFD Corp. provides technical support, service, and tooling for the company’s deep rolling crankshaft products in North America. To better serve our customers, Simmons is acquiring Hegenscheidt-MFD Corp. to bring the companies together. The new entity is NSH USA Corporation.

NSH USA will additionally serve North American customers across industries such as railway, aerospace, defense, automotive, and renewable energy by providing sales, process engineering, programming, and service support for all companies in the NSH Group:

NSH USA’s headquarters will remain in Albany, New York. The manufacturing facility in Sterling Heights, Michigan (Hegenscheidt-MFD Corporation) will directly serve the automotive crankshaft industry and provide additional support for NSH Group products.

Earlier this year, NSH USA established the Niles Technical Application Center (NTAC) in Albany, New York where a Niles-Simmons N30MC multitasking machine will soon be present for customer demonstrations, process development, and operator training.

Simmons, Stanray®, and Hegenscheidt railway machines for the USA market will continue to be manufactured in Albany, New York, where the company has experienced significant growth and focused much of its development.

NSH USA President/COO David William Davis: “This is an exciting moment not just for Simmons and Hegenscheidt-MFD Corporation, but for the entire NSH Group. Building off decades of manufacturing experience and the wide variety of strengths that make up the members of the NSH Group, NSH USA is now positioned to significantly grow our presence throughout North America.”

NSH USA Corporation manufactures specialized and multifunction precision machine tools and automation systems for railway, automotive, aerospace, and other industrial manufacturers worldwide. Founded in 1910 and based in Albany, New York, NSH USA is a member of the NSH Group (Niles-Simmons-Hegenscheidt), an international leader in machine tool technology.
