An Eclectic History

William S. Nott founded Nott Company in 1879, beginning the business by supplying leather drive belts for the milling and lumber industries. Belts were then made from animal hides using water power from St. Anthony Falls on the Mississippi River, near what is now downtown Minneapolis. By the early 1900s, products evolved from luggage, horse harnesses, and leather dice cups to hand-drawn fire engines, steam pumps, and motorized fire engines. Remnants of the old fire equipment can still be found throughout Nott Company’s offices today.

By the 1960s, the business had evolved and developed two specialty divisions – Rubber Fabrication and Fluid Power. These integral departments provided the design and fabrication of completed rubber products, standard component pieces, total fluid power solutions and engineered systems.

Today, these specialties have expanded into Engineered Materials Solutions, Mobile Fluid Power, Industrial Fluid Power, and Industrial Engineered Solutions. Nott Company and its four divisions now employ hundreds of people across eight locations around the midwest. As an employee-owned (ESOP) company, we are confident that our dedication to growth and change will carry us successfully through the 21st century.



Nott Company strives to serve the best engineering solutions and integrated processes in the industrial, fluid power, and engineered materials markets. We achieve this through enthusiasm, innovation, and outstanding service to keep foundational industries moving forward with ease.


Our vision is to be the lead partner in engineering, systems, and supply chain solutions. We want to serve every customer with a solution that not only fits their needs but goes above and beyond to make their lives easier.


As our customer, you come first –always. By putting ourselves in your shoes, our focus is directly on serving your needs as if they were our own.

We’re not good at standing still. By providing support for growth in our staff, they are continuously evolving their skills and knowledge to work both smarter and harder to provide the best solutions for you.

We simply don’t do average. We’ve built teams of forward thinkers with diverse expertise, allowing them to challenge possibilities and deliver the exceptional results you’re looking for.

The most important way to accomplish the above is by creating an environment where every Nott Company employee feels seen, heard, and supported in every endeavor.
