Nimbus Broom Co.
Europe ★ M|G|R|L ★ Harry Potter Canon

Welcome to Nimbus Broom Co.! Formed in 1987 by Devlin Whitehorn, Nimbus Broom Company is one of the most famous broom manufacturers across Europe. They are renowned for the fastest, lightweight, and streamlined broom on the market - therefore being favoured by many of the great quidditch players and broom racers. Not only that, but every single creation of theirs is tested to the limit to become even better than their last broom; they are always improving, and always gaining new fans of their brand.

Information

Location
The official headquarters of Nimbus Broom Co. is held in Venice, Italy, at the heart of the city. As wide as it is tall, the main office is set on the top floor of the building with classing windows and door frames. To reach the building, you must travel by boat to the front door, which is raised on steps to the wood crafting area. It suited the business well as clients would arrive on the river and leave via the top balcony with a brand new broom.

When Devlin Whitehorn first began his invention of the Nimbus 1000, he made history with the brand new, sleek design. And by changing the face of the broom industry for good, he changed how brooms were to be tested - using the narrow, water-flooded streets of Venice, he figured out that travelling at speed at such bends were perfect for broom testing. And thus, he changed Quidditch standards forever.

Upon entering the building, guests are greeted at the reception, sometimes offering small tours into the making of the Nimbus (but careful not to reveal any real secrets). The counter can guide the client toward the back room toward the workshop, though is is usually strictly for employee access only, or toward the private selection of brooms on the second floor.

The second floor holds a showroom of the latest and greatest brooms, all on display with detailed descriptions of their most suited sport and use. Customers are allowed to test the broom before buys, though they must be escorted by a professional in case of any accidents around the streets of Venice. The showroom is large of modern despite the almost worn look of the outside, each broom cased with care as to prevent any damage.

On the top floor are the main offices which include data handling, broom engineers, marketing executives, and meeting rooms. All of which are incredibly professional and formal. There are opportunities to discuss custom designs with some of the makers, but it comes with a steep price increase for such a thing. On the roof there is a small obstacle course for broom testers to give feedback on turning, weight, handling, and braking performance. Nimbus Broom Co. is likely the most influential sports brands of its time, and it is lively always looking for new inventors when possible. It will never stop rising above the limits and setting new standards.
