In 2022, we advanced our engineering department with the addition of a FARO Focus Laser Scanner. With this new technology, our engineers receive fast, accurate measurements of the jobsite and 3D scans that help identify any issues our teams could run into with the project, allowing us to provide the highest quality to our customers.
Our Custom Fabrication business unit obtained the ISO 9001: 2015 certification back in 2021 and successfully passed their first surveillance audit in 2022. For 2023, we have identified Shop Coatings as the next business unit that will work towards receiving the ISO certification. We value the ISO 9001: 2015 certification at Nix, because it has helped us consistently make products that meet our customer requirements and has increased our quality focus across the organization. The quality certification also drives growth within the organization that will allow us to better meet our customer’s needs as we continue to grow.
We are proud to share we had 3 recipients for the 2022 Nix Family Scholarship! The Nix Family Scholarship was established to provide a $1,000 scholarship for a student from our local schools, North Posey High School, Gibson Southern High School and Mater Dei High School, furthering their education in the trades or advanced manufacturing (robotics, mechanical engineering, industrial supervision, industrial maintenance, drafting/CAD, or related field).
