Nilma was founded in Parma in 1956 on the inspiration of Pietro Nobili, who decided to apply his experience gained in food industry plants to large kitchens. The company has been developing machines and systems for the catering industry ever since.

Nilma's technology is based on three factors: knowledge of the product for processing and its characteristics; the determination to produce foods of the highest quality while optimising times and resources; and the custom-made approach. The company also designs machinery and plants to the customer's requirements.

Thanks to this approach, Nilma's solutions have opened the way to a completely new concept of catering, and in some cases have pointed the direction for new legislation.
The company initially only served the domestic market but now exports to 60 countries all over the world. Nilma machines are found whenever state-of-the-art technologies and high international health and safety standards are required.
