Company historyEdit

The company was founded in 1941 by Heini Nüssli (1919–2011) as a carpentry workshop in Hüttwilen, Switzerland. In 1958 the company entered into the scaffolding sector and in the following year they began with the rental and assembly of grandstands, stages made of wood and steel tubing. As a result, NUSSLI developed new scaffolding, stage, and grandstand systems, made several acquisitions starting in the 1980s, and established branches abroad as of the late 1980s. Their international expansion grew even stronger particularly as of the year 2000. In 2007, the company established the scaffolding sector independently under the name xBau, and since that time has turned its focus towards the event, stadia and exhibition markets.
