Celebrating 100 years of NilsenSince 1916

100 years and 4 generations

This year at Oliver J Nilsen we will be celebrating 100 years in business. Since starting in 1916, we have become one of Australia’s most respected electrical engineering companies. This is due in no small part to our loyal group of Customers, suppliers and of course our staff.

For four generations, the company has always had a Nilsen at the helm, whether it be as a managing director or as major shareholders the Nilsen Family have always been keenly interested in the development of the company.

To celebrate this milestone we will be releasing articles from the company archives about some of the interesting ventures that we have been involved in over the last 100 years. Some of you may be surprised to learn that Nilsen have been involved in everything from the manufacture of electric kettles to starting up Australia’s first commercial radio station, so watch this space and all will be revealed.

Our vision

To be a leading electro-technology company operating throughout Australia to deliver installation, maintenance and manufacturing services from inception to replacement.

Our values

We are accountable for making and meeting our commitments.

We expect:

  • Openness and honesty
  • Individual initiative and opinion
  • Willingness to stand up and be counted
  • Consideration for the needs of others
