From then until today
The history of NMC begins in 1950, when the entrepreneur Gert Noël establishes the company in a small village in Belgium to start trading activities in the post-war period. His first entrepreneurial idea was to make life easier for housewives with clever new products, such as a novel household sponge made of polyurethane.
To date, NMC has developed into an internationally leading and growth-oriented group of companies in the field of synthetic foams. For 70 years, the company has put people and customers at the center of everything it does, developing a wide range of applications and products that provide people with comfort and protection for a better life. Spread across 22 locations in 16 countries, 1650 employees make their contribution to customers in 120 countries.
