Nikles’s most recent development

Nikles Sound - The Nikles Sound Technology features an integrated cartridge that is powered by a water turbine. It does not require any external charging or replacing batteries. The system simply turns on as soon as the water tap is opened and the water flow starts. The turbine powers the integrated speaker, microphone, Bluetooth® wireless connection and recharges an integrated battery. Therefore there is no need for additional batteries or connection to the main power supply.

You can connect any external devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops or others which have Bluetooth® wireless connection. For your convenience the system stays on for 5 more minutes after you close the water flow. This allows you to save water while you are getting soaped or continue to listen to your favorite song when you are getting out of the shower!

1982 - Today

Nikles was founded in 1982 by today’s president Mr. Gerhard Nikles.

In the early days, Nikles was purely a trading company and an agency for plumbing products, mainly distributed in Switzerland and Italy.

In the early 90’s, Nikles developed into a manufacturer and began producing Inox braided flex hoses as connection hoses for water taps. After a few years, many well established tap ware manufacturers gradually became clients of Nikles. Initial investments in the first generation shower program followed and with the sale of the trading arm of the company, the direction of the company’s future as an OEM manufacturer was determined.

Nikles now

To date, Nikles remains a 100% family owned business with sales organizations in Switzerland, Italy, USA, China, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand as well as in Germany. Our main distribution and production centers for the Nikles products are located in Italy and China.

Nikles is continuously expanding to serve local customers.

We opened a sales office in Bangkok Thailand in 2012 and established in 2015 another sales office in Atlanta, GA, USA.
