- About Us
Brigitte and Fred Nykamp started their family owned and run business in 1996 and have been manufacturing Ultimate Mum pillows since 2013. They have raised 4 children, all adults now and all 4 are married with their own growing families. They have 9 grandchildren, with more on the way. Fred’s background includes a broad and successful corporate experience, travelling extensively while Brigitte held down the fort. Brigitte also managed a very successful craft business and was a professional photographer while Fred’s global business background developed extensively in textiles, apparel, sports and other consumer products. Today, they enjoy owning and running their family business with all of the challenges and adventures it brings. Their children who are growing their young families work with them in different roles from time to time. They are proud to say that their pillows are 100% Canadian made. Ultimate Mum Pillows evolved from a great Australian friendship a few years ago and Fred and Brigitte took it on and launched Ultimate Mum Pillows, selling in the USA and Canada. Their involvement in family, children and babies provide them a constant opportunity to appreciate what Ultimate Mum’s need today to guarantee Mum’s get the better sleep they desperately need and deserve, both during and after pregnancy, overnight recovery from lower back strains and pains, pelvic area realignment, body support and very importantly a pillow that also provides the ability to nurse or feed comfortably when the mother chooses to. All in a family and Ultimate Mum priority.
