Nickerson Corporation – Our History

February 24, 2015

Nickerson Corporation, Long Island, school furnitureFounded in 1952 by Donald Nickerson, Nickerson Corporation’s sole purpose is to provide quality furniture solutions to schools in need. Originally based out of Greenwich, Connecticut, educational furniture products were primarily supplied to schools in half of New York State. Today, we are proud to say that we have expanded our borders and not only are we headquartered on Long Island, New York, but our products and services now extend to schools throughout New York, New Jersey and even some parts of Pennsylvania.

In the late 1960s, the team that started Nickerson’s operations grew to include Bob Keller, who later purchased the entire company from Donald (also known as ‘Nick’). Then, in 1994, Bob’s daughter Stephanie joined as her father’s assistant and salesperson, and is now the President of the company, taking it to a whole new level.

Today, providing high quality furniture at a competitive price with on time deliveries is still of utmost importance to us. We are consistently looking for new ways to grow and better serve our customers to meet and exceed their expectations.
