NEMO is founded on a commitment to adventure, to the fearless pursuit of uncharted paths, in everything from the equipment we build to the way we run our business. Bravely exploring new directions opens our minds, brings us closer to the people we depend on, sharpens our wits, and lifts our spirits. We believe meaningful adventures are possible for everyone, anywhere.
Cam Brensinger incorporated NEMO Equipment, Inc on April 24, 2002, with the intention of bringing high-level design and engineering to the outdoor industry. Only two months later, following his graduation, Cam moved NEMO into an historic mill in Nashua, NH. A quick drive from both New Hampshire's White Mountains and the great design and business resources available from connections at RISD and MIT, Nashua was the perfect location to establish the company headquarters. Much of the first year was spent learning how to sew and pattern and developing NEMO's AirSupported Technology. Tents were chosen as NEMO's first product line because Cam saw the opportunity to bring significant new innovation to the market and knew that successfully revolutionizing tents would give NEMO the credibility to move into new product lines in the future.
NEMO launches the first major overhaul of its website in years! New photos, videos and written content help tell the story of NEMO and convey the experience of using NEMO gear. Sales of sleeping bags are quadruple the initial forecast and energize the design team to begin thinking about what product lines might be next.
