In 1954, the Austrian Georg Blaim founded the company Norma, ‘Nie Ohne Richtiges Messen Arbeiten’ in Hengelo. Blaim was headstrong, something that still characterises the company, which was taken over by Henk Oude Mulders in 1971. His son Stan Oude Mulders joins the company and takes over Norma in 2004 together with director René Vlaskamp. The change of management is particularly noticeable in the entrepreneurship and courage that are added to the way of doing business.

In 2006, Norma misses out on a major contract with a customer because it is deemed ‘too small’. This is one of the reasons management decides to grow further through acquisitions. This includes the take-over of both the machine shop of electronics group Thales in Hengelo and the machine shop of Philips in Drachten. In May 2014 Norma aquired Mecon Engineering. In the period from 2006 – 2014, Norma Groep has grown from 80 to more than 400 employees and currently comprises four branches.

Since 2016, Norma is part of NTS-Group and operates under the name NTS Norma
