Three words that describe the principles of the Govro-Nelson Co. founded in 1923. Today, these words still guide this Michigan company in producing a complete line of GOVRO™ drilling/tapping units and high production machines. These dependable made-in-USA machines can be found performing difficult applications all across North America and several countries around the world.
In 1962, Govro Nelson moved into the rotary transfer business with the production and sale of the first vertical indexing machine. For manufacturers of high production parts rotary transfer technology improves quality, increases production and cuts labor costs dramatically. The modular design of Govro high production machines allows for flexibility and easy reconfiguration for changes in future applications. Govro now has thousands of units in the field that have been operating 24/7 for decades..
Over three generations, the company evolved from manufacturers of precision aircraft parts and prototype work, to developing uniquely-designed drill units featuring concentric construction.
In late 2016, Govro-Nelson was sold and re-located to Commerce, Michigan, west of metropolitan Detroit, insuring the business will continue going strong for years into the future. Govro customers have the assurance, going forward, that Govro products will be built with integrity by an experienced factory team, with greater quality and reliability.
