Nodor was a company founded in 1919 by Ted Leggatt as a manufacturer of modelling clay.
They produced their first dartboards in 1923, they were made from clay and weren’t very popular. About a year later they began manufacturing elm dartboards. In the mid 1930’s Nodor patented a successfully sold their bristle Dartboards.
Once the patent on the Nodor Dartboard had expired both Nodor and Winmau both produced bristle boards and were fierce rivals.
Both companies tried to buy the other over the years until, in 2002 when Nodor finally acquired Winmau.
To this day Nodor manufactures darts equipment under both brand names.
