Nimon and Sons Passenger Transport Company was established in 1905, taking over a business established in 1874, and is still owned today by the Nimon family. Bill Nimon is the fourth generation to own and run the company following his father John and his father Joe.
Originating from Havelock North, Nimon and Sons Ltd is now based in Whakatu, Hawke’s Bay where its main office, depot, and workshop facilities are located. There are additional depots in Napier and Taupo that operate school buses and luxury coaches. The Company operates a fleet of around 100 vehicles in a variety of capacities.
The Company is believed to be the oldest established passenger service operation under continuous private ownership in New Zealand.
The track record of Nimon and Sons over the last 100 years is well known and documented and continues to be a very community oriented company, sponsoring sports teams such as the Hawke’s Bay Magpies and supporting many Schools and Charity events around the area.
