Chicago Innovation Award Winner 2013 Overview

Nordic Auto Plow LLC is based in West Chicago, Illinois and has developed a revolutionary new product to remove snow from driveways this winter – the Nordic Auto Plow. This innovative new snow plow is designed to be attached to the front or back of almost virtually any type of passenger vehicle, including cars, trucks and even ATVs. It is intended for non-commercial use to help users quickly clear their driveways during snow events, providing a more effective alternative to using a shovel or snow blower. The Nordic Auto Plow can be attached to virtually any passenger vehicle in seconds. The user can literally just drive out of their garage and down the driveway. The user stays in the comfort of their heated car and can clear snow in a fraction of the time of conventional methods. The product is ideal for people who are unable to shovel due to physical limitations, people who have a higher risk of heart attack, or for those who simply want to save time during snow removal. It literally turns an ordinary car into a snow plow!


Nordic Auto Plow LLC was co-founded by Richard Behan (CEO) and Paulette Behan (CFO), the inventors and designers of this snow plow for everyday cars and vehicles. Richard had the idea for this innovative product since his college days more than 30 years ago. He continued to see the need for an easier method of snow removal and they both worked with industrial designers and engineers to develop the Nordic Auto Plow. The product was launched in January 2012 and is already available online at several retailers with outstanding consumer demand. Nordic Auto Plow LLC is based in West Chicago, Illinois. - For a downloadable PDF, click here.
