TO MAINTAIN THEIR LEGACY OF INNOVATION IN A SWIFTLY CHANGING WORLD, VALUER HELPS NILFISK IDENTIFY STARTUPS THAT BEST SATISFY THE COMPANY’S THIRST FOR TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT


What is now a leading global provider of professional cleaning products and services, started as nothing more than a large dream squeezed into a technology enthusiast's small backyard. It’s the same constant desire for knowledge and innovation that kept the company at the forefront of technological advancement for the next 110 years. From the launch of the first vacuum cleaner in Europe to the “Silent Dane” model that forever lowered the noise levels of vacuuming to the recent development of a ground-breaking autonomous scrubber for unmanned cleaning.

Today, Nilfisk has an extensive range of both professional and domestic cleaning equipment. Their main product lines are floor care equipment, vacuum cleaners, high-pressure washers and a selection of domestic vacuum cleaners.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ At the end of 2018, the company numbered more than 5,800 employees worldwide, including more than 250 engineers focused on the structured stage-gate development process and more than 3% annual revenue dedicated to research and development.

A large part of Nilfisk’s current long-term strategy is to become the leader in intelligent cleaning. Guided by a heritage of tireless dedication, they’re well aware that – in order to succeed in this, they will need to quickly adopt the newest, most promising technologies. Especially those relevant to robotics and digitalization, two novel and extremely challenging branches.
