Nesco Ltd Established in 1939 April as the New Standard Engineering Co. Ltd. (NSE), Nesco Ltd known as a pioneer in the tool manufacturing segment, as it brought into the country, world class processes and designs for the manufacture of a number of engineering products. Equipment such as forging hammers and presses, blowroom lines and high production cards for the textile industry; and sucker rod pumps for on-shore oil recovery were some of the main product lines that emerged as market leaders.
