nora® - History

The industrial processing of rubber has been known since the beginning of the 20th century when in the 1930s the production of sleeve gaskets and shoe soles made of rubber started in Weinheim. Back then, still under the name of Freudenberg. The chemist, Dr. Walter Nürnberger, responsible at that time for the development of shoe soles, became the godfather for nora® because of the Latin form of his name “Norimbergensis”.

This brand name was used in 1949 for the newly established business unit of rubber floorcoverings. Today, nora systems looks back on 60 years of experience. The advantages of the fascinating material rubber were discovered early on and floorcoverings of highest quality were produced since then by innovative developments, pathbreaking production methods and uncompromising quality assurance.

At first noraplan® rolls were produced, followed by the production and marketing of tiles under the product name norament® in 1967. The uni-coloured round pastille norament® 925 has become a classic in the meantime. - But this is not the only design with which nora stands out today: In the 1990s, the hammerblow design and granular designs were introduced to the product range. Today, nora systems offers around 300 different types of colours, designs and surfaces in the standard range.

Around the world, people come into contact with nora® floorcoverings today, often in award-winning buildings: in the Federal Environmental Agency in Dessau, at BMW in Leipzig, in the Pudong Airport in China, the City Hall in London, the branches of the British departments stores of Marks&Spencer, in the Pirelli Tower in Milan, or in the New York transit subway.
