Niko was founded in 1919 by two brothers, Alphonse and Werner De Backer. In their workshops in Sint-Niklaas (Belgium), they designed and manufactured switches and socket outlets that quickly won the Belgian market. In 1965 with the luxury switch, the Inter 70, the company brought its first products to the international market.
Today, Niko is led by the third generation of the De Backer family and all the solutions offered by this family-owned business are created to meet the daily needs of its customers.
It designs innovative concepts that make life at home and at work flexible and easier. Niko is dedicated to providing well thought-out design and an environmentally friendly approach. To this end, Niko invests heavily in research and development.
