nivtec-flexibel Bühnensysteme GmbH is a medium-sized family run company from Remscheid, Germany. Since 1999 nivtec produces a stage and gallery system for the event industry. The very essence of our being is probably best described by our CEO:
“When technical know-how meets passion, and passion creates a roaring fire, when the promise to stay on the move, becomes an obsession, to become faster and easier, then the best nivtec ever is born.
In partnership with and for the client.”
Maria G. Kruszewski
In 1999 Dipl. Ing. Tadeusz Kruszewski sets out to create a far more practical staging system than the market offered at that time. By searching for solutions to facilitate stage construction, he conceptualises ideas and finally files patents.
The main goal of this journey is to provide a light, easy and robust product that simplifies the work in the event industry. No unnecessary tools, less material and a lot more flexibility have ever since been the strong points of our system. There is still a long way to go..

Since 2000 our motto is: „Same procedure as every year“. Once again we exhibit at the Prolight + Sound to celebrate our 20th anniversary with clients, suppliers, and interested visitors. For the first time aboard: BLU, the blue flamingo, who from now on is our companion on the road to a perfect stage.
In April 2018 we deliver the 150,000th platform. In over 50 countries nivtec stages support the event industry with the same drive as on day one. Most recently nivtec goes Far East – from Indonesia over South Korea to Japan people value the clever way of building stages.
Who would have guessed that nivtec becomes a global „stage“ player? Especially when we think about the humble beginnings.
nivtec revolutionises itself to make stage construction even easier and more efficient than ever before. Accompanied by new strucutral calculations for our aluminium base construction, stages up to 180 cm can be built on aluminium. By using aluminium the weight of a stage is reduced while being as stable as steel. The best nivtec ever is even lighter, faster and more flexible.
2016: upgrade to height 200 cm
2017: seat galleries up to height 200 cm follow
As one of the first, we start testing our system based on the new European DIN EN 13814 which deals with quality and safety of temporary installations like stages and galleries. In that context we strengthen our position as forerunner of safety in the industry by receiving the corresponding certificates long before they are binding. The compliance with the latest regulatory frameworks ensures that our clients can easily receive official approvals for set-up of their nivtec stages and galleries.
The valid safety regulations are intensified and adjusted to higher strains. In order to take account of this development, nivtec undergoes extensive examinations in cooperation with structural engineers and TÜV-Thüringen e.V., the test authority for structural stability and flying constructions. The high-pressure tests once more prove the enormous resilience of the product. Documentation checks and acceptance tests for stages with different base constructions, galleries as well as accessories and completion parts cover our safety claim to the fullest and lead to extensive certifications.
nivtec already makes stage construction easier in 25 countries on 4 continents.
After the sudden death of Tadeusz Kruszewski in July 2004, Maria G. Kruszewski also takes over the technical management in addition to her duty as the commercial head of the company. The already planned business relocation to today’s premises are made despite of the horrible news.
In a small team of four people including the boss, the company attempts a new beginning.
In March 2000, the world expo in Hannover finally provides the breakthrough. The 540 sqm stage is the first large-scale project for the little manufactory. nivtec developes the elevations for scaffolding and delivers the material right on time to the world exhibition.
Bregenzer Festspiele, Schauspielhaus Zürich, Landestheater Flensburg, OHZ Lokhalle Göttingen, Hugenottenhalle Neu-Isenburg, Schloss Borbeck, all of which are German-speaking clients of the first hour, are still working with their niv-decks to this day.
Thanks to these clients and their requirements a variety of developments are made and added to our range of products. Some of these are platforms with recessed corners, triangles, acrylic glass platforms, dismantling hook, telescopic legs, extension adapter for transport wheels, wedges for ramps, links N-F, rail transport trolleys, bumper boards, adapter- and lining laths, platform links, textile lining, transport trolleys for legs and platforms as well as many more.
The extension of our range of products paves the way to become a stage and gallery expert. Through the close contact with clients, short internal ways and use of precision tools new product developments are released month by month. Entirely in line with our motto „in partnership with and for the client“ the company puts a strong emphasis on technical development in order to meet the wishes and impulses of the growing number of nivtec users.
In March 1999 the company nivtec presents its newly patented staging system as a prototype at the Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt. In June of the same year the serial product sees the light of day at Showtech in Berlin.
nivtec starts its road to a perfect stage. In particular the first year demanded very much efforts of the newly founded company. Production, dispatch, warehouse and office have all been situated on only 100 sqm.
Initially nivtec had little success to convince clients of its revolutionary system. The belief in the product and the own ability ensured stamina. Respectable achievements, as the first deal with a public institution, the city of Amberg, bring appreciated tailwind.
