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

Avantes is a leading innovative company in the field of development and production of fiber-optic coupled miniature spectrometers for measurements in the UV, visible (VIS) and near-infrared (NIR) wavelength ranges.

tec5 AG develops and manufactures innovative products for industrial optical spectroscopy and photometry for a variety of applications. The product range extends from OEM components and embedded systems to complete UV-VIS-NIR and Raman spectrometer systems.

m-u-t GmbH specializes in technologies for tailor-made customer solutions in photonics and the combination of optics and electronics. The core markets are spectroscopy, sensor technology, laboratory automation and medical technology.
APOS GmbH delivers turnkey measuring system solutions for the wood-based materials industry. A distinction is made between products for receiving wood goods (ReceivingOPT product family) and for various process applications (ProcessOPT family).

LayTec AG develops and produces process-integrated optical measurement technology for thin-film processes. The measuring systems are used in particular in optoelectronics, electronics, photovoltaics, optics, photonics, semiconductor industries as well as in the production of flat screens and memory chips.

Spectral Engines Oy develops and produces extremely miniaturized and cost-effective MEMS-based spectral sensors that are used in industrial applications (Smart Industry), agricultural applications (Smart Agriculture) and in the household appliance market (White Appliances and Smart Home), primarily in mobile systems.

LemnaTec GmbH creates hardware and software systems in the area of plant phenotyping and high-throughput screening, in which the appearance of plants in terms of size, shape and color is quantitatively analyzed and measured as characteristics of shoot and root growth, productivity and quality.

Sensortherm GmbH specializes in the development and production of highly accurate and fast infrared thermometers for non-contact temperature measurement as well as system components for advanced process monitoring and control.

Image Engenering specializes in the development and production of image quality testing devices such as test and calibration equipment for cameras and multi-sensor systems. With one of the world's largest test laboratories for objective image analyzes with defined and standardized test procedures and calibrated hardware, the increasing demand for multi-sensor calibration systems, e.g. in automotive, security and medical technology, is met.

The MGG Micro-Glühlampen-Gesellschaft Menzel GmbH (Micro light bulb company Menzel GmbH) is a specialist for miniature and precision light sources at the highest level. The important components are manufactured for almost all areas of modern electrical engineering and electronics. Over five thousand types of lamps are manufactured, including for optical measurement technology, aerospace, medical and communications technology as well as telecommunications and machine tool control.

NLIR ApS  have developed a novel measurement method for spectroscopy in the mid-infrared range (MIR). The technology converts light in the mid-infrared range into visible light. This technology makes it possible to bring measurement systems in the mid-infrared (MIR) range from the laboratory into the process in a scalable manner.

The Photecture Inc. ist ein Vertriebshändler für Photonik­­produkte der Nynomic AG. In diesem Markt bietet sie Dienst­leistungen wie Produkt­lieferung, Installationen, Wartung und Support oder Schulungen an.
art photonics GmbH is one of the world's leading companies in the development and production of special fibers for a broad spectrum from 300 nm to 16 µm. Unique technologies of polycrystalline mid-infrared fibers and metal-coated silica fibers are used to build various spectroscopy probes for medical diagnostics and industrial process control.

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 200 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.
