Producing as an OEM provides the highest quality

“Working as an OEM for major brands is demanding. They want the highest standards and are knowledgeable about their orders. Nimo-KG is chosen because of the quality level of our products”, says Martin Olsson, CEO of Nimo-KG.

Approximately 30 percent of Nimo-KG’s sales are through so-called OEM channels. This means that the company develops and manufactures products that are then sold under another company’s brand name. Usually, the selling company offers a larger solution to customers and does not always have all components under one roof. Instead of customers having to find a separate supplier for the manufacturing process, it is often more convenient to have everything in one solution under one brand.

“About 30 percent of our turnover is through OEM sales, a segment we have done really well in Germany. We are proud that other process manufacturers want to use our products for their customer solutions, and we sometimes compete with ourselves in tenders. But it doesn’t matter, the most important thing is that the end customer gets the best solutions, and they get that regardless of whether they buy directly from us or through an OEM agent,” says Martin Olsson.

It is rare that an OEM product from Nimo-KG is taken straight off the shelf, usually it is a project-adapted solution that Nimo-KG and the customer develop together.

“The companies we work with in OEM know what they want and are very knowledgeable. They set high standards and pay attention to detail. The fact that they choose to develop their solutions together with us rather than developing them themselves shows that our collaboration is responsive and that we produce a result that is appreciated. The fact that other companies choose to sell our solutions under their brand is a great stamp of quality for both our products and our employees,” says Martin Olsson.

Designing for industry process needs provides stable business conditions

Flexibility creates stability in the Nimo-KG company. Whether the economy is booming or slowing down, the company is performing well.  

“Our recipe of a combination of cost control and customised solutions has proven successful for over 60 years,” says Martin Olsson, CEO of Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG opened its doors in 1958 and could therefore soon be called an energetic pensioner. But no retirement awaits the engineering company, which is instead setting its sights on an exciting future. As a specialist in product handling equipment for the food industry, Nimo-KG has carved out a niche for itself that makes it unique in the world market.

“Nothing is a bed of roses; every day is a struggle to make Nimo-KG even more successful. Like any other company, we must balance our costs with our revenues,” says Martin Olsson.

To control costs, Nimo-KG has chosen to outsource all production. This means that they can more easily cope with market fluctuations. It also allows them to handle both small and large orders independently. On the revenue side, Nimo-KG works both as an OEM manufacturer and sells through its own sales channels directly to end customers, where the focus is on creating customised solutions. Nimo-KG has a flexible business model, which in turn provides a solid foundation for the business.

“With our customised solutions, we have built a good name far beyond Sweden’s borders. Already today, 70 percent of our sales are exported, but we see good opportunities to increase sales globally. Food will always need to be handled and our goal is for Nimo-KG to contribute to more efficient industrial production,” says Martin Olsson.

Flexibility and customisation make Nimo-KG unique

Over 80 percent of Nimo-KG’s solutions are designed to meet the unique needs of the customer. Few products are taken directly from a shelf in a warehouse. 

“Our flexibility to develop according to the customer’s wishes and needs makes Nimo-KG unique,” says Martin Olsson, CEO of Nimo-KG.

Lifting and emptying containers is a common process in industry, but as a moment, conditions are often different for different companies, which requires unique solutions. This is especially true for the food industry, where Nimo-KG’s machines empty, for example, meat blocks, minced meat, sausage meat, frozen peas, salad leaves, yeast dough, cookie dough, mayonnaise, melted chocolate, tomato soup and much more. Different physical conditions have an even greater impact, including the size and design of the container, ceiling height, emptying height and internal logistics, to name a few factors.

“Our challenge is to listen to the customer’s needs and based on that, design a lifting and emptying solution that is perfectly suited to their operation. They shouldn’t have to adapt the process to the machine, we adapt the machines to their processes,” says Martin Olsson.

There can be a lot of differences between different suppliers of machines in the same industry, which is why Nimo-KG’s products are not standardised. Instead, as much as 80 percent of what is sold is developed according to needs and customer requirements.

“Being flexible is one of our watchwords. Customers should feel that we are there for them and find the solution according to their conditions. Flexibility means being responsive to our customers, it makes us unique and contributes to our success”, says Martin Olsson, CEO of Nimo-KG.

Customers from all over the world turn to Nimo-KG

Approximately 70 percent of Nimo-KG’s sales are made outside Sweden. Even though the company has no foreign sales offices. 

“It is the customers who come to us”, says Martin Olsson, CEO of Nimo-KG.

Since its foundation in 1958, Nimo-KG has been based in Kågeröd, a few miles east of Helsingborg in Skåne, Sweden. From there, they have developed products that are now spread in production environments all over the world and can be found on all continents except Antarctica. Today, 70 percent of sales are exported, which Nimo-KG has managed to do despite having no sales offices abroad.

“Of course, over the years we have built up a network of dealers in different countries, but it is mainly the customers themselves who come to us. As they choose to modernise their production process, they have found that the solutions Nimo-KG supplies suit their purposes,” says Martin Olsson.

Working remotely with customers from different cultures is always a challenge. Since each solution is in principle customised, Nimo-KG has developed its processes based on these conditions. Many times, it is the first time the customer is conducting this type of procurement.

“The customer’s needs are most important to us and to develop the right solution we ask a lot of questions. We need to understand how the customer wants the process to work so that we can deliver what they need based on that. We have succeeded well in this and listening to the customer’s needs is probably the most important reason for our international success,” says Martin Olsson.

Nimo-KG Presents Bestselling Hydraulic Tipper and Belt-Driven Lift on IFFA, May 14-19

Nimo-KG returns to IFFA, the world’s leading trade fair for the meat industry, and will present two bestsellers that streamlines the production process for manufacturers in the meat industry. The Hydraulic tipper SKV 300 HA-T and the belt-driven lift SK 800 MKB.

“These are two of our newest machines that has been very popular in the past year, especially in the meat industry. The belt lift is suitable for companies with demanding production processes and high standards of hygiene, and the hydraulic tipper is an upgraded version of the company’s hydraulic tipping machine for trolleys”, says Martin Olsson, MD at Nimo-KG.

Over the years, Nimo-KG’s lifting and tipping equipment has made the company from southern Sweden a well-known name in the food industry, and in particular the meat sector. The previous year’s Nimo-KG attendance at IFFA have resulted in several orders, including from Hong Kong and Singapore. IFFA gathers more than 60,000 visitors from 140 different countries.

“IFFA is a unique meeting place for the international meat industry with visitors from all over the world. The goal is to network both with potential final customers and resellers on the international market. It’s also a valuable opportunity for us to receive feedback and suggestions from resellers and potential clients. Customized and tailor-made is our specialty, and therefore it’s valuable to get access to the opinions of the end users.”

Experts in customization

Nimo-KG supplies tailored solutions for internal product handling to customers all over the world. Since it began, the company has continually developed its range of machines and equipment, adapting them according to their customers’ widely diverse needs. Nimo-KG always takes part from start to finish and takes care of any adjustments and additions.

Nimo-KG delivers third machine order to world-leading fruit preparation company

Product handling company Nimo-KG has now delivered a third repeat order to a world-leading Canadian fruit preparation company. The order consisted of three of Nimo-KG’s SK 800 MK2 double column lifts and a number of transport trolleys.

“The customer works with fruit preparation and is one of the world’s largest suppliers, for example to dairies. They have built an entirely new production line where our machines will be installed to lift and empty the product into their receiver containers. This being the third repeat order shows the customer is happy and that we can deliver high quality machines to world-leading manufacturing companies regardless of industry” says Nimo-KG sales person, Carina Thern. 

Nimo-KG received the first order from this end customer a couple of years ago, and now the company has delivered a third set of double column lifts to Canada. The lifts are specially designed to fit into the end customer’s production process.

“We came up with a customised solution with our SK 800 MK2 double column lift, where special large pneumatic funnels were installed to make the production flow as efficient as possible. Working on the basis of the customer’s specific needs and conditions to find the very best solution is something we excel at”, says Carina Thern.

Nimo-KG’s SK 800 MK2 double column lift is used in a number of different industries, including in food processing, where it is used to lift and empty products from large containers, for example into forming machines, fillers, grinders, and mixers. The lift comes in a number of different variants, and can be customised to integrate into all production processes. Read more about the SK 800 MK2.

Nimo-KG deliver custom made conveyor to one of Germany’s largest turkey producers in record time

The product handling company Nimo-KG have now delivered a custom made conveyor to one of Germany’s largest producers of turkey. The custom made conveyor was designed, built, delivered and installed in only eight weeks’ time.

“The client had built a new production hall and needed to transport products from ground level up to higher levels. We tailored the solution based on height and product, and they are very pleased”, says Peter Becker, Area Sales Manager at Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG was recommended by an existing client in Germany, who had already installed a production line for the turkey producer. The recently delivered vertical conveyor is based on a previous machine design by Nimo-KG.

“Many clients request tailored solutions. In this instance we adapted the conveyor to the product and height. It consists of three components and was delivered in parts, to be mounted at the location. Furthermore, the delivery time was exceptionally short, progressing from quote to mounted product in eight weeks. The usual time frame is often twice as long.”

Nimo-KG, from Kågeröd in the south of Sweden, collaborates with most of the main machine providers in Europe. Germany has a strong and expanding market, where most new clients are found through recommendation and word-of-mouth.

“At the first meeting with the turkey producer we discovered that they already had several of our machines that they had bought through retailers. Everyone within the industry knows about Nimo-KG, which is fun since we are a small business from Skåne. We are growing world-wide”, says Peter Becker.

Nimo-KG launches new belt lift: “Great hygiene benefits for the food industry”


Martin Olsson, MD at Nimo-KG that recently launched a new belt-driven lift.

Better hygiene and easier maintenance. These are some of the benefits of Nimo-KG’s new belt-driven lift. The company from Skåne, Sweden, designed the lift following requests from companies in several different industries and countries, including a major German manufacturer of process equipment for the food industry.

“So far, we’ve sold the new lift to companies that produce salads and charcuterie. But it’s suitable for all kinds of production in the food industry, and the lift’s hygiene aspects are of particular benefit,” says Martin Olsson, MD at Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG supplies several different kinds of lifts for use in e.g. the charcuterie segment. The lifts are well suited anywhere in the food industry where product in a container must be lifted and emptied. When a German process equipment manufacturer sought a belt-driven lift, Nimo-KG developed the new SK 800 MKB lift.

Instead of using a chain, the lift is driven with belts. This has many advantages, but also requires a more complex design. Belts lead to better hygiene and easier maintenance; they’re easier to clean, they can withstand harsh chemicals and need no lubrication or tensioning.

“The belt lift is suitable for companies with demanding production processes and high standards of hygiene. The German customer already had a belt lift, but one with major technical problems. We’re therefore pleased with the confidence they’ve shown in us and proud to have solved their problems by creating a new, reliable solution.”

Nimo-KG supplies tailored solutions for internal product handling to customers all over the world. Since it began, the company has continually developed its range of machines and equipment, adapting them according to their customers’ widely diverse needs.

“Our strong side is customisation. Because container sizes, emptying heights and accessible spaces are just some of the conditions that vary continuously, each and every machine is designed individually. This also applies to our new belt lift,” says Martin Olsson, MD at Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG presents new generation of lifting and tipping equipment at IFFA, the World’s largest trade fair for the meat industry

IFFA

There is no better place to introduce the next generation’s product handling machine than at one of the World’s largest food trade fairs. Therefore, Nimo-KG will bring the newly developed single column lift SKV 300 C4 to IFFA, the World’s leading international trade fair for the meat industry, which will be held in Frankfurt between 4 and 9 May.

“Nimo-KG is a supplier of machines and equipment for all of the food industry, but meat and charcuterie are our major customer segments. Therefore, IFFA is a suitable forum for us to introduce the latest in product handling from Sweden and Skåne,” says Peter Becker, sales manager for Germany at Nimo-KG.

Over the years, Nimo-KG’s lifting and tipping equipment has made the Skåne company a well-known name in the food industry. The previous year’s Nimo-KG attendance at IFFA have resulted in several orders, including from Hong Kong and Singapore. IFFA gathers more than 60,000 visitors from 140 different countries.

“IFFA is a unique meeting place for the international meat industry with visitors from all over the world. The goal is to network both with potential final customers and resellers on the international market.”

I addition to the new single column lift Nimo-KG will go to Frankfurt with another newly developed machine – SKV 300 HA-T is an upgraded version of the company’s hydraulic tipping machine for trolleys.

“The trade fair is a unique opportunity to show and demonstrate the newly developed machines. Here, we will have the opportunity to receive feedback and suggestions from resellers and potential clients. Customised and tailor-made is our specialty, and therefore it’s valuable to get access to the opinions of the end users already during the development phase.”

All the staff from Nimo-KG will go to Frankfurt and IFFA, both to meet up with existing resellers, make contacts and to find new inspiration.

“It is important for our designers to be there in person to see the latest innovations and how food production is developing, since our machines are a natural part of this development. We look forward to a rewarding and inspirational week in Frankfurt,” says Peter Becker.

Requests for improved hygiene and safety behind Nimo KG’s increased sales in Canada

Nimo-KG is selling more single and two-column lifts than ever to the Canadian manufacturing industry. In 2018, one of this Swedish company’s distributors in Canada contributed to a considerable increase in orders received.

“It is primarily the Canadian foodstuffs and pharmaceutical industries that use our lifts. They regard them as the market’s most safe and hygienic machines,” explains Carina Thern, Area Sales Manager at Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG has been delivering lifts to Canada for many years, however, 2018 turned out as a record year. The Nimo-KG distributors in the country report that increased awareness of hygiene and safety are deciding factors in the growing demand for single and two-column lifts.

“These lifts are designed to ensure uncompromising hygienic standards in a given production setting, which of course is an important element in the foodstuffs industry. By customising the machines to the specific production systems of our clients, we help them to always meet their demands on hygiene,” says Carina Thern, and she continues:

“In Canada, there are currently also efforts under way to reduce work-related injuries in the manufacturing sector. Production equipment upgrades constitute one part of this effort, and here our lifts stand out as one of the solutions since they guarantee a very high level of safety to the operators.”

Carina is confident that Nimo-KG will continue to increase its deliveries to North America, chiefly by maintaining a high level of satisfaction among its customers.

“As an OEM supplier, customer satisfaction is the best way to expand our cooperation with the distributors and this way deliver even more machines during 2019.”
