Nimo-KG originated in the village smithy in Kågeröd in Sweden. Products such wood gas generators and fire engine superstructures were manufactured under the Kå-Ge brand.
Seth Hermansson buys the smithy from the Selander brothers. The company begins manufacturing handling equipment for the food industry and other manufacturing industries under the Kå-Ge Lyften brand. The first tippers are exported to the Soviet Union.

The workshop becomes too small once again and new premises at Böketoftavägen 25 are opened.
The company opens a manufacturing unit in Wales.
The brand is internationalised, and Kå-Ge Lyften becomes KG-Lyften.
The company name is changed to KG-Lyften AB.
