TORRINGTON, CT – Norse has acquired a 110-ton Minster No. 9 standing press. The press came online at Norse's Torrington, CT, factory in March 2015. It will be used for multiple stamping operations, though primarily dedicated to Type 1 Large latches used in its ShutterUp Latches hurricane shutter latching systems.
Norse's acquisition will allow the company to continue manufacturing its Type 1 Large latch entirely inhouse. The press will enable higher production volumes, reduced production times and enhanced quality adherance.
