WHERE HAVE WE BEEN
Nimco Made4You was founded in 1904, in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. It started as a specialty shoe company that manufactured and sold its products locally.
From the very beginning, it was very clear that this wasn´t just your regular shoe brand. Innovation and forward thinking were embedded in the DNA in such a way that it became number one and first in many future trends:
1971 The first shoe shopping centre “Eurocenter” opens.
1990 The patented Stretch technology is invented, making it possible to apply stretch leather to shoes.
1999 Inauguration of the first production unit for orthopaedics in Portugal, initially called Fits All.
2006 Launch of “Personal Pair”, a new concept for custom-made shoes.
2008 Personal Pair has become one of the most important products in the business. Part of its success was due to the customization app, completely different from everything that existed at the time.
2011 Launch of the first 3D based web shoe configurator for orthopaedics.
2013 Towards the future: Nimco Made4You presents its new IPAD app – “the professional shoe sizing system”. The system measures the foot, suggests NM4Y last, scans, stores and sends the data.
2015 In line with this development, NM4Y transfers its production to other facilities, in Cesar, Portugal. This 3600m2 area offers enough space to accommodate future changes.
2016 Invention of the Modular Concept Orthopaedics, a ground-breaking concept for custom-made shoe construction.
2018 Realization of the first electronic leather swatch. Nimco E- Leather Swatch
2020 Availability of 3D rendering movement in real time for shoe configuration.
2021 Every year, surprises in the market with news.
