NSH USA Corporation manufactures specialized and multifunction 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.
Shortly after the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, Simmons Machine Tool Corporation pioneered the concept of rebuilding and reengineering machine tools, which was critical to rapidly restoring America’s decimated Pacific Fleet. After World War II through the 1980s, Simmons continued to build machine tools for important industries such as power generation, ship building, weapons manufacturing, and railway. In 1984, the company’s Chairman, Prof. Dr. Hans J. Naumann, invested in Simmons and strategically focused on the international railway industry. In 2021, Simmons acquired Hegenscheidt-MFD in Sterling Heights, Michigan, with the new entity being named NSH USA Corporation.
