In 1928 the N.V. Artificial silk spinning mill de Nyma is founded. The factory initially specialized in the production of artificial silk from cellulose. When the market for rayon yarn completely collapses in the 1960s, the company had to close its doors in 1969. In 1970 a restart is made. After a company fire destroyed the machinery in 2009, the factory was shut down and production moved elsewhere. The site of the NYMA factories and the Vasim is now being developed into a new hotspot for Nijmegen-west.
