Two of the Nimbus Racing Broom Company's products with their owners: Harry Potter with a Nimbus 2000, and Draco Malfoy with a Nimbus 2001

The Nimbus Racing Broom Company is a broomstick company formed in 1967 by Devlin Whitehorn. Its arrival galvanised the racing broom market, and its first product, the Nimbus 1000, was a revolutionary design. The Nimbus immediately became the broom of choice for professional Quidditch teams across Europe, and subsequent models have kept Nimbus at the top of the field until the Firebolt came along.[1]
