Posted May 23, 2013 by donovanmcwhite

Nilson Van & Storage, South Carolina’s oldest single family-owned moving company, commemorates its 75th anniversary with the launch of a new logo and a media kit that celebrates its history and success.

Nilson Van & Storage, the oldest single family-owned moving company in South Carolina, is celebrating its 75th anniversary with the launch of a newly designed commemorative logo.

“We are incredibly proud of reaching such a milestone,” says Phyllis Nilson, Nilson’s President and CEO, “and we wanted a new logo that reflected our pride in our company and this achievement.”

Designed by Splash Omnimedia, a Lexington, SC marketing firm, the logo highlights Nilson’s history and success while also nodding to its global reach and forward-looking aspirations. The logo also incorporates the company’s motto and the heart of its philosophy: “Delivering the Difference”.

“Even though a lot has changed—and over the course of 75 years, a lot has changed,” says Phyllis Nilson, “we still believe that providing high quality service, service that is professional, efficient, and stress-free, makes all the difference.”

In addition to the logo, Splash Omnimedia helped Nilson mark the big anniversary with a new media kit, which will help differentiate it from its competition, and a new video that tells the story of Nilson Van & Storage’s journey from its humble beginnings to where it is today: the leader in government, commercial, and residential moving, both domestically and internationally.

It’s an inspiring story of a small startup growing into itself to become a true powerhouse. Founded in 1938, Nilson started with two trucks and a $500 investment; now it has over 140 experienced employees and contractors in 7 locations across 3 states with more than 75 pieces of equipment and 225,000 square feet of warehouse space. The company, which started out as a mover of household goods, has since expanded its services to include logistics, office and industrial moves, hotel installs, libraries, schools, and more.

But even with all the change and growth, Nilson’s focus on quality, professional service still remains. So does its leadership—as it celebrates 75 years of business, Nilson is approaching its 4th generation of Nilson family ownership. Nilson also prides itself on having multiple generations of families in its employee workforce, making it truly a “Family Mover Who Moves Families”.

“It’s just amazing to look back on 75 years and see how far we have come and how much we’ve grown and changed,” says Phyllis Nilson. “But what’s really important is that, even after all these years, Nilson Van & Storage still has the core principles that made us who we are today. Even as we grow and change, fundamentally we’re still the same.”
