Nichols Celebrates 85th Anniversary

August 25, 2021 Nichols Celebrates 85th Anniversary

Nichols recently marked its 85th year of business by hosting a themed luncheon at its main office as well as its branches throughout the Midwest.

The Muskegon, Michigan-based distributor was established in 1936 and purchased by Ken Olthoff in 1957. Since then, it has remained owned and operated by the Olthoff family, with Mike Othoff serving as the current owner. His sons Chris and Jason have come onboard to the family business as vice presidents in recent years.

 “We are very pleased to celebrate our 85th year in business. This is only possible because of our great customers, suppliers, and associates. What a wonderful group of people with which to conduct business. We look forward to growing with all of you,” said Mike Othoff.
