Nordan Composites started back in the late 1980s as a spin-off of Nordan Racing a private Indy Car team put together to run the American Indy Car series. In the nineteen eighties Indy Cars were following the technology of Formula one by introducing Carbon composites to race car manufacturing. In those days Carbon composites were a black art, privy only to the defense industry. Being based in Long Island MacArthur Airport, Nordan had access to the engineering talent from local aerospace companies like Grumman Aerospace and Fairchild. In the late eighties there were no private Composite shops, so all development and repairs on the car had to be done in house. Being on an airport word got out of our existence which led to composite repairs to local corporate jet repair stations. This in turn followed to the major airlines. To keep up with demand, Nordan expanded its facility while also hiring and training many new employees.
Nordan Composite Technologies holds an ISO 9001 2015 certification for quality assurance. Other accreditations include Composites fabrication and certified training from Cert-Tech, a NASA recognized affiliation. We currently have three locations Plainview, Patchogue and our newest in Rocky Point, NY. Our third location will be the future home for Nordan as we would like to keep everything in one location for a more efficiency. Rocky Point is currently under complete renovation and expansion.
Besides our ISO Quality Management System, we control part dimension using CMM and 3D scanning. We are currently working on our certification for NDI inspection (non-destructive testing)
Our competition division has been a part of numerous racing championships and wins over the past 25 years from formula cars (F2000 1999/ Star Mazda 2004 championships) to GT and Prototypes with wins at Daytona 24 hr. (2012 Porsche/ 2016 Audi) Indianapolis (2012 Porsche) Sebring 12hr (2014 /Porsche) Speed World Challenge championship 2006 (Porsche) just to name a few. We work close with competitors in all type of racing series, to achieve a competitive edge from our experience with design and testing of our race proven components
VINTAGE AND HISTORIC RACING
Nordan can fabricate many variations of fiberglass storage tanks and in ground service pits. We also offer a mobile Fiberglass field unit. We can perform onsite repairs of all Fiberglass structures, such as industrial Tanks, piping, pools and marine. We employ confined space certified technicians to perform in the most demanding environments.
Nordan composite Technologies likes to give back to the community. With local High Schools and Universities, we offer a series of STEM classes and Collage senior engineering projects. We are teaching students to become state-of-the-art hands-on Composite technicians. They learn good solid engineering and fabrication practices for industries such as, Aerospace, Wind Energy and all forms of Transportation. We offer full credited courses for many government sponsored agencies like The United Way and the Veterans Education Administration.
Nordan Composite Technologies is an all-in-house composite facility that can handle CAD part and tooling design. CAM manufacture of mold tools both metal and composite. Our part manufacturing capabilities include Aerospace and OEM automotive composites to a full Fiberglass fabrication shop.
We offer services to our peers, such as automated cutting and kitting within our 1000 sq ft clean room. Vacuum bagging and curing in our 5ft x 18 ft ID Autoclave. CMM and NDI inspections, along with 3D scanning with reverse engineering.
