In 2016 Nilfisk celebrated its 110 year anniversary. The company was founded in 1906 in a backyard workshop in Copenhagen by young engineer and enthusiast within motors, P.A. Fisker.It was a desire for knowledge and the ambition of creating a global company based on exploiting the potential of technology that drove Peder Andersen Fisker to set up his own business 111 years ago. The business he started was Nilfisk.
Nilfisk South Africa was officially established in 2014 following the acquistion and merger of well known brands Wap and Industroclean. Both had previously been dealers for Nilfisk, each bringing with them a unique set of attributes and more than 30 years of experience in the South African cleaning industry.This ideal mix of quality and expertise hasprovided the perfect platform for launching what the Nilfisk brand now represents locally.
