History

Nix Companies has a strong heritage that began in the late 1800’s when our founder Charles Nix immigrated from Germany and eventually settled in Poseyville, IN, founding his blacksmith shop in 1902. The business has evolved over the years, and today, 5th generation (great-great-grandsons of Charles) own and operate the business.

Corporate Strategy

At Nix Companies it is our intent to remain a closely held, family business. We feel this is the best way to ensure long term health, stability and the ultimate achievement of our VISION (link): “To create one of the best employment opportunities in the world within our industry”.

We look to continue our growth through a threefold strategy: organic, strategic acquisitions, and new product/service developments. By focusing on each of these three areas, we are optimized to leverage our strengths, and continue our growth in a responsible and sustainable fashion for generations to come.

Our Holdings

Nix Companies Inc. is actively pursuing investments in adjacent businesses and industries. Some of our acquisitions such as Superior Fabrication and Heritage Custom Fabricators (links) are fully integrated into the primary operating entity. However, some of our investments continue to operate autonomously outside of the primary operations. We are open to, and currently hold minority, majority, and 100% interests in these various holdings.
