Nynomic Group of Companies


Mission Statement

Nynomic's mission is to make the world a better place for this and future generations. We achieve this by implementing innovative photonic measurement technology to measure parameters that are of vital importance in the areas of life science, green tech and clean tech. We offer the entire value chain of non-contact optical measurement technology - from components and systems to applicable solutions. Our customers can choose flexibly from our product portfolio and in terms of the degree of integration, depending on what best suits their requirements.

Photonics for Growth Markets

The Nynomic AG focuses its business on three high-growth markets:

  • Life science with a focus on medical technology,
  • Green tech with applications in the fields of agriculture and environmental technology, as well
  • Clean Tech with a very wide range of fields of application in the entire industrial sector.

In addition to digitization and automation, the growth drivers in these markets are demographic developments, a lack of resources and increased efficiency. Intelligent solutions for permanent, non-contact and non-destructive optimization of processes are developed and produced on the basis of a broad technology platform. These solutions lead to a high level of customer benefit – amortization times are short, increases in efficiency are high.

All from a Single Source

The Nynomic AG has a clear brand concept with independent brands.

  • The basis are the optical measuring cells and spectrometers from Avantes.
  • tec5 AG combines such components into high-quality systems and thus increases added value.
  • m-u-t GmbH combines components of the group companies with its own know-how to create innovative applications that are marketed as series devices.
  • APOS GmbH creates complete measurement solutions for the niche markets of the wood processing industries and related markets.
  • LayTec AG develops and produces measuring devices for the semiconductor sector, photovoltaics and the measurement of large surface coatings.
  • LemnaTec GmbH creates highly complex, non-contact sensor and automation technology for digital plant phenotyping in industry and research.
  • LemnaTec GmbH creates highly complex, non-contact sensor and automation technology for digital plant phenotyping in industry and research.
  • Sensortherm GmbH develops and manufactures infrared measuring devices and specializes in digital pyrometer technology for non-contact, high-precision and rapid temperature determination.
  • Image Engenering is one of the technology leaders in the field of image quality measurement and is continuously setting new standards in the development and manufacture of test and calibration equipment for cameras and multi-sensor systems.
  • The MGG Micro-Glühlampen-Gesellschaft Menzel GmbH is an internationally recognized specialist for miniature and precision light sources at the highest level.

Sustainable Growth

On the basis of sustainable growth, Nynomic AG is continuously developing as a reliable partner. Short-term sales maximization at the expense of medium and long-term customer relationships is not desired. Sustainable growth is to be achieved both organically and through company acquisitions. The buy-and-build strategy has already been the basis of the disproportionate growth in recent years, which was well above the dynamism of the industry. The strategy is reviewed and internal structures adjusted at regular intervals. The growth driver is the scaling of the product platform, the growth accelerator is the scaling via the series business. The goal is to achieve double-digit sales growth per annum. In the medium term, sales of around EUR 150.0 million with an EBIT margin of at least 15% are targeted.

Globally Active, Strong at Home

The high export quota of Nynomic AG shows the growth in all regions. The group is growing continuously in its core markets of Germany, Europe and North America. This important market is served directly through subsidiaries in China and sales partners in other Asian countries and is also developing very positively.
