The year was 1977. Nick was 22 years of age and mixed his first order with a discarded tea urn, a stove, a jug and some materials that he bought from a local hardware store nearby. The soft wax was then poured into tins which he screened by hand. Nick sold his products to the outdoor trade, driving around in his second hand Morris 1000 van and later.
After a few years he then moved to a workshop in Clerkenwell in London and before he even knew it, Nick was exporting and selling his Nikwax to eight countries. 'The product' - was a non-softening waterproof wax primarily for leather boots. The wax was so effective that it actually set the standard for a new type of aftercare products under the Nikwax brand.
