The History of Nix Manufacturing


Nix Machine Products was established in 1970 in Southern California. In 1977 the small family business was moved to the Umpqua Valley in Sutherlin, Oregon. After several years of success, Richard Nix was able to expand the business to the 13,000 foot facility where it stands today. In 1996 the Nix family incorporated the business and changed the company name to Nix Manufacturing, Inc. After Richard's retirement in 2001, his son Brian was named company President -- responsible for all aspects of the business and manufacturing processes.

As President, Brian Nix has continued to expand the capabilities of Nix Manufacturing, Inc., with ongoing investment into new machines and technology and a service emphasis on quality assurance -- while at the same time fostering solid relationships with both clients and vendors.

Because of the continued hands-on involvement of the Nix family over several generations, the facility has continued to improve over the last four decades. Still using the beginning principles of quality and small town service, Nix Manufacturing , Inc. continues those values as the business has grown to successfully compete in national markets and in a variety of industries.
