NLO 130 years: the strenght of our people

2018 is a special year as it's the year NLO is celebrating its 130th anniversary. This is a milestone to be proud of, and one we're going to properly mark with a range of activities focused on our rich history and our exciting future.


The activities may be very diverse but they'll all be linked by a common theme: the strength of people. Or, to put it more precisely, their resilience. Their capacity to bring about change and adapt to new situations. So the main act in our celebrations will be the NLO employees themselves.

Standing on the shoulders of giants #TBTNLO

Anyone who's been around for 130 years has seen and experienced a great deal. And while the past isn't something we want to dwell on, it has made us what we are today. So, our ‘Throwback Thursdays’ series will honour everyone who's been part of a NLO from 1888 to the present day. People who've literally seen the world change. And have taken these changes on board... or even helped to make them happen. 

View all NLO Throwback Thursdays on our Linkedin company page.
