NEW LACHAUSSÉE (NLC) is a Belgian company founded in 1992 following the acquisition by the Forrest family of the Belgian company LACHAUSSÉE. The FORREST family holds all its shares. NLC is based in Herstal, Belgium.
NLC is a company that designs and manufactures machine tools for the production of pyrotechnic devices such as industrial metal components, hunting, sport and military ammunition or civilian primers and detonators used in the mining sector.
Each production unit designed and manufactured by NLC is unique, meeting the standards and specific characteristics determined by the company's customers. The company has its own Design Office and a Research and Development Department, both at the cutting edge of technology.
In addition to design and manufacture, NLC assists its customers in the installation of machines and provides training in their use. Founded in 1830, NLC is the custodian of an industrial regional tradition. The company is currently one of the world leaders in its field of expertise.
In 2011, New Lachaussée moved into new facilities with a floor space of nearly 4000 m2, an investment of more than EUR 4 million. This building was designed to meet the most stringent environmental and safety standards.
Although the majority of NLC's production is intended for export, no product, directly or indirectly of a military nature, leaves Belgian territory without a licence being issued in accordance with the regulations by the competent Belgian authorities, in this case the Walloon Region.
