Our History

Founded in 2015 by people with solid experience in the business, Nile AB has constantly grown every year by successfully helping customers get the best possible solutions.

Our History

Our company was founded in 2015 as Herpa Tech AB, as a technical converter partner to Herpaprint GmbH.

From 2015 to 2021, the company grew from 11 to 44 employees, resulting in the premises at that time becoming too small.

At the end of 2020, the company moved to a brand-new customized premises that is a blueprint for a modern converting environment, giving us possibilities to optimize our production and to grow even further.

At the same time, we decided to create a new brand and change our name to Nile AB. The name is a combination of the first two letters in the last names of the founders Peter Nilsson and Wilfried Lentzsch. Despite our relatively young age as a company, we have many more years of experience in the business than the company’s age suggests. Some of us have been working together for more than 15 years, which has made our team more effective and in harmonious. From the very beginning, we have lived by our core values: Creativity, Quality, Caring, and Happiness.

Since the start, the company has been a profitable, a rising star in the high-tech converting sector with an average growth index of 45%.

On the 2nd of November 2022 Linxens acquired a majority stake in Nile to extend its expertise in the healthcare field. By leveraging Linxens’ technological expertise and industrial footprint, Nile will be able to meet the growing demand of its customers for smart patches/wearables.
