Where we came from

Nictus was founded by PJ de W Tormp in 1945, the name was comprised of his two sons Nicolaas and Albertus. The name has since become a household name in the furniture industry in Namibia and parts of South Africa.

In 1955 the first furniture was sold under the Nictus brand and the first South African furniture store was opened in 1983 in Randburg, Johannesburg. Nictus furnishers enlarged its footprint in 1987 by taking over Berg Meubileerders. Nictus Furnishers currently has two branches, one in Louis Trichardt and one in Polokwane. Nictus Furnishers is a fully owned subsidiary of Nictus Limited group, which is listed on the JSE since 1969.
