Nursan – a wiring systems expert on a growth trajectory

Founded in 1976 in Güngören near Istanbul in Türkiye, Nursan, with its approximately 8,000 employees, is now a major manufacturer of wiring systems for the automotive industry. Nursan uses, among other things, machines from the Komax Group to produce a broad range of wire harnesses, primarily for cars and light commercial vehicles, but also for trucks, buses, and tractors. To this end, there are currently around 170 fully and semi-automatic wire processing machines from Komax und Schleuniger in operation, as well as the 4Wire CAO MES (Manufacturing Execution System) from DiIT GmbH.

The company manufactures at nine sites in Türkiye and Bulgaria. Annually, wire harnesses for up to 750,000 vehicles are produced at the Turkish site in Tavşanlı alone. Nursan increased revenues by more than 35% from 2021 to 2023. The Komax Group worked closely with the company, supporting it in its growth trajectory with its products and services. The wire harness expert is targeting continued strong growth in the future, and can count on the Komax Group as its partner of choice.

The biggest manufacturing site, Nursan’s “Plant 1” in Tavşanlı, Istanbul, Türkiye, produces wire harnesses for up to 750,000 vehicles each year. Among the machines it uses to do this are Sigma 688 twisting machines, Komax’s Alpha series crimp-to-crimp-machines, and the CrimpCenter from Schleuniger.

The trust-based partnership between the Komax Group and Nursan stretches back over three decades and is strengthened by regular exchanges between the companies and the Komax Group’s representative agent in Türkiye. Reliability on deadlines, quality, and service are important pillars of this partnership. In the reporting year, the two former Schleuniger and Komax representative agents together created Binova, a new firm that, going forward, will be Nursan's direct point of contact for all products and services of the Komax Group and will work closely with it.
