In Business For Yourself, Not By Yourself

Backed By Generational Experience, forging ahead by a competitive & progressive culture

What does it mean to be powered
by Nix Industrial?

We all know big families are made up of smaller individual families, and while they each have their own identity, they all share the same heritage and similar values. Our business is no different. When you franchise with Nix Industrial, you have the chance to establish and expand a business of your own, with the guidance and support of our experienced team and proven-successful processes.

Nix Industrial, with origins tracing back to a humble family blacksmith shop established in 1902, has since progressed into a 5th generation family-owned business and a national leader within the metal services industry.

Our mission statement, Be Big, Act Small ℠, is more than a catchy phrase. It’s the foundation for our entire business philosophy.

Our mission statement, Be Big, Act Small ℠, is more than a catchy phrase. It’s the foundation for our entire business philosophy.

As a franchise owner, you will have the opportunity to align yourself with this mission and join our legacy brand.

We take a people and values-based approach to business. We truly believe people are our biggest asset and that business can and should be a force for good. The way we integrate our values and culture within blue-collar businesses is a differentiator. We strive to add value to all who we come in contact with, and we believe our values and strategies will deliver consistent, long-term results.

What Business will you franchise?

Coatings & Finishings

With so many manufacturers in the marketplace, we can help navigate what equipment is best suited for your business from our decades of experience in coatings & finishings. We will help plan the overall layout, which plays a crucial role in your profitability and overall throughput of a coating operation. Having the proper estimation and management systems in place to efficiently run takes years of trial and error, which we have worked through already.

Metal Fabrication or Machining

The number of metal services business startups are on the decline due to the barriers to entry, high costs involved in setting up a business, and the departure of the baby boomer workforce. With a Nix Industrial Franchise, we help do the heavy lifting with you. This is an incredible opportunity for potential owner-operators to step into a business with an existing client base that is amplified by the NIX brand reputation known for quality, reliability, and longevity.

Field Service

Owning and operating your own service truck (or fleet of trucks) can be a great way to dramatically increase your income and build long term wealth. With the support of our franchise network, we can make this transition much easier and safer. We will help provide you with sales leads, business coaching and mentorship, administrative tools, and back-office resources.
