Nikles was founded in 1982 by today’s president Mr. Gerhard Nikles. In the early days, Nikles was purely a trading company and an agency for plumbing products, mainly distributed in Switzerland and Italy.

In the early 90’s, Nikles developed into a manufacturer and began producing Inox braided flex hoses as connection hoses for water taps. After a few years, many well established tap ware manufacturers gradually became clients of Nikles. Initial investments in the first generation shower program followed and with the sale of the trading arm of the company, the direction of the company’s future as an OEM manufacturer was determined. 

To date, Nikles remains a 100% family owned business with sales organizations in Switzerland, Italy, USA, China, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand as well as in Germany. Nikles’ main distribution and production centres for the Nikles products are located in Italy and China.
