Our story starts with Sanitary Conveyors

Innovation starts with an idea. At SideDrive, providing sanitary conveyor design and solutions has been our goal since our founding. As an NCC Automated Systems Company, SideDrive Conveyor brings NCC’s 35+ years of proven experience as a full-service automation systems integrator to its sanitary conveyor offering.

Recognizing that there was an increased need for sanitary modular plastic belt conveyors, NCC was founded as a spinoff of Intralox® in 1986 by a former Intralox employee. Since then, NCC has successfully helped food processing, consumer packaged goods, and OEM machine builders alike streamline and optimize their production with its extensive system knowledge and industry experience with sanitary conveying equipment--but it hasn’t stopped there.

When the industry speaks, we listen. The industry has been asking for a more sanitary spiral conveyor for some time. NCC saw an opportunity to create the most sanitary spiral in the world when Intralox released their edge-driven 2700 series belting. To improve upon existing industry solutions for sanitary conveyors, make the most efficient design and build process, and truly harness the power of edge-driven technology, SideDrive was formed as an extension of NCC.

At SideDrive Conveyor, we create flexible spiral layout solutions for unique applications such as 2-in-1 spirals, alpines, in low/out low, square loops, and more. Proudly manufactured in the U.S.A, we’ve integrated some of the world’s best automation equipment solutions and sanitary conveyors. We are experts in sanitary conveying equipment—from design to integration.

As a trusted partner to our customers, we draw from our rich NCC experience to design, build and integrate automation, packaging, and material handling solutions for specific food production needs, including our sanitary conveying equipment.

NCC has provided solutions for 80 percent of Fortune 500 companies in target markets, including:

SideDrive Conveyor is the first company in the world to exclusively focus on and use side drive edge-driven belting from Intralox, making it the authority when it comes to versatile, sanitary conveying equipment.

A modular design and drumless spirals make cleaning easy with our sanitary conveying equipment.
