Into the USA

Building a reputation as a world force in the machinery safety industry, Nelsa has expanded into the USA through the purchase of the safety and control mat manufacturing division of Wisconsin based Wikk Industries. Nelsa has been associated with Wikk Industries for seven years, during which time the safety mat was developed from a Nelsa devised specification in order to conform to new European Standards. Nelsa’s MD Ken Lomax says: `The acquisition makes sound strategic sense, because now Nelsa ha total control over the manufacture of one of its major product lines. At the same time, the setting up of a US corporation has opened up the North American market to other Nelsa products.’
