About Nielsen Enterprises, Inc In the mid 1970's NEI's founders had a vision. To create a pattern and mold shop based on the highest level of quality possible at the lowest possible cost with on-time delivery using state of the art equipment. In 1979 their vision became reality when Nielsen Enterprises was founded. Today, Nielsen Enterprises is a manufacturing service provider, providing premier patterns, molds, impellers, and prototype manufacturing. In 1988 after Nielsen Enterprises purchased their new CNC mill they were forced to find a method of programming it. Nielsen Enterprises discovered SURFCAM, a CAD/CAM system that was just starting out. They immediately became the first SURFCAM dealer and have now received numerous SURFCAM awards for their sales, such as the prestigious Dealer of the year award. 28 years later Nielsen Enterprises both uses and sells SURFCAM, which is now the world's premier CAD/CAM system.
