About Us


Nexus Sealing Solutions is an Australian owned family business. The company has its roots in South Africa where it was established in 2002. Right from the start, the understanding was that we need people to help us grow. 

The word Nexus means “central link or connection” or “the working together of people”. The name of our company became our work and business philosophy, and it is how our purpose statement was developed - “working with people to engineer solutions”.
