In the climbing industry, good products aren’t made by magic. Nicros’ products – both climbing walls and handholds – are the result of great people working hard, working thoughtfully, and above all working together. At Nicros, our most valuable resource lies within our talented team of employees.

Pam Postma, Vice President
Starting in 1979, Pam formerly worked in administration and accounting for Midwest Great Dane Trailers.

Pam traveled from the east coast to the west coast climbing everything and trying to keep up with Nate. She participated in numerous local and national competitions meeting great people in the climbing industry. Climbing became the way of life. In 1995, Pam left her career of sixteen years with Midwest Great Dane Trailers to help with the birth of Nicros, her husband’s dream.
