To “Forge Ahead” means to move forward and take the lead, to advance rapidly, progress quickly. It also hints at the earliest beginnings of Nix Industrial – forged in the humble blacksmith shop of Charles Henry Nix – the generations that have followed have taken his lead, Forging Ahead℠ to build a better, stronger future for our community, our employees, our partners and our customers.

The forward arrow in the Nix Industrial logo points to the future, to forward movement, progress and ties directly to the tagline below it. This also serves as a rallying cry for the internal team, inspiring them to blaze new trails and focus on the potential that lies in wait.
