While the history of NICHOL traces back to the Barr Brothers from 1918, its more recent history dates from the ’50s. Even In the early days, the company specialised in engraving, steel stamp manufacturing and stencil cutting. The first member of the Nichol family, Barry Nichol commenced his apprenticeship with the company in 1952 as a die-maker and letter-cutter. On Barry completing his apprenticeship, the family purchased the business. In the same year, Trevor Nichol joined the company.


We expanded our product range to include impact stamping and roll marking machines from Automator Italy. A relationship that is still ongoing today.


The product range was enhanced with the inclusion of the computer-controlled marking.


Become one of the first company’s in our industry to be accredited to the ISO9001 quality system. This accreditation is still in place.


A move from Abbotsford to Nunawading provided the opportunity to upgrade our manufacturing facility and add Automator laser marking systems to our range.
