Story of Nimlok
Like most successful brands, Nimlok was born from a problem that needed solving. Our inventor, Neil Nimmo was a professional commercial photographer who was looking for a better way to showcase his work in front of clients. His simple solution, a pole and a panel that locked together saw his name and that function merge to create Nimlok and so our amazing journey begin, all the way back in 1970.
Rapid growth including opening in the USA and Canada in the 1980’s, under the co-founding Perutz family’s care, saw the product range expand and design services grow.
Not only was the build method unique, but also the basis on which it was offered. Nimlok’s business had transformed from selling stand architecture to hiring it, in response to a market where Nimlok observed increasing numbers of infrequent exhibitors and ever greater demand for flexibility.
As well as innovation in 'what' and 'how' we were delivering, the 'why' question lead to further evolution with Nimlok focusing on designing the on-stand activity and content as well as the environment itself.
This move was paired with the launch of Nimlok’s in house AV division as content testing and integration became as important as Nimlok’s much cherished stand pre-build process.
Today Nimlok’s mission to deliver increased exhibitor ROI sees it’s 100 strong team deliver over 450 installed projects in over 20 countries and growing!
