Nix Companies has a strong heritage that began in the late 1800’s when Charles Nix immigrated from Germany and eventually settled in Poseyville, Indiana. Charles operated a blacksmith shop shoeing horses and forming iron. At the conclusion of Charles’s career, his two eldest sons ran the business for several years before turning the business over to the youngest son Carl. He operated out of a small dirt floor building for several years before moving across town and building the first small block building at their current location of 21 N. Endicott St. in Poseyville, Indiana. In recent years, the fifth generation was added when Matthew and Adam Nix, sons of Charles (Bill) joined the family business.
