Kick-off ‘Nijhuis Industries celebrates 115 years’ - 5 April 2019!

On 5 April 2019, Nijhuis Industries officially started their 115-anniversary tour during the Waste to Wealth SUMMIT. The anniversary tour will end at the IFAT exhibition in Munich next year in 2020.

The programme of the Waste to Wealth SUMMIT, which was organized at the premises of Nijhuis Industries in Doetinchem (the Netherlands), consisted of several keynotes speeches (Henk Ovink, Peter Drenth, Peter Scheer), the official movie première of Nijhuis Industries, award ceremonies, a Nijhuis experience tour around the premises and a networking reception.

During the Waste to Wealth SUMMIT, the focus was not only on the different SDG goals related to water, food, energy and industry, but focus even more on SDG 17 to build coalitions and partnerships achieving the 2030 goals and create more impact during the years to come!

A special moment in our company history

The 115 year celebration of Nijhuis is a very special moment in our company history. On 5th of April 1904 Gerrit Jan Nijhuis founded ‘Machinefabriek G.J. Nijhuis’, initially a repair workshop for textiles, dairy and slaughterhouse equipment which later expanded to design and manufacture generators, motors and iron equipment. We are hugely inspired by the entrepreneurship of our founders and share the same passion and vision to satisfy our clients, by supplying high quality solutions. Innovation has always played a very important role in our company history and is increasingly one of the most crucial ways to address the growing need for clean water.

When it comes to success, it’s all about the PEOPLE

Over the last 115 years people have always been our most important asset. Today, Nijhuis is active in over 140 countries and our team of over 300 highly skilled and motivated colleagues have the same spirit as our founder, to deliver solid solutions in today’s fluid world. However, we are also very thankful to our business and academic partners, suppliers and above all our clients, for their ongoing loyalty to our company. We look forward to working together even more closely during the decades to come!
