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 fields 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 the applicable solution. Our customers can flexibly choose from our product portfolio with regard to the degree of integration, depending on what best fits their requirements.


Photonics for high-growth Markets


Nynomic AG focuses its business on three fast-growing markets: life science, with a focus on medical technology; green tech, with applications in the fields of agriculture and environmental technology; and clean tech, with very broad application fields throughout the industrial sector. The growth drivers of these markets are digitalization and automation as well as demographic trends, lack of resources and increased efficiency. Based on a broad technology platform, Nynomic develops and produces intelligent solutions for the permanent, non-contact and non-destructive optimisation of processes. These solutions lead to great customer benefit, with short payback times and high increases in efficiency.


Everything at one Address


Nynomic AG has a clear brand concept with independent brands. The optical measurement cells and spectrometers of Avantes are the basis for this. tec5 combines such components into high-quality systems, thereby increasing the added value. m-u-t combines components of the group companies with its own expertise in innovative applications, which are marketed as series production devices. APOS provides complete measurement solutions for the niche markets of wood processing industries and neighbouring markets. LayTec develops and produces measuring devices for the semiconductor sector, photovoltaics and measuring large-scale surface coatings. Spectral Engines develops and produces highly miniaturised, inexpensive detectors (MEMS-based spectral sensors) that are used in in industrial, agricultural and medical applications, mainly in mobile systems. LemnaTec offers highly complex non-contact sensor and automation technology for digital plant phenotyping in industry and research. Sensortherm develops and produces infrared measuring devices and is specialized in digital pyrometer technology for applications of non-contact, highly accurate and fast temperature determination. Image Engineering is one of the technology leaders in the field of image quality measurement and continuously sets new standards in the development and manufacture of test and calibration equipment for cameras and multisensor systems. For more than 50 years, MGG is an internationally recognized specialist in the development and production of miniature and precision light sources, which are primarily used in optical measurement technology as well as in safety and medical technology applications. NLIR’s novel, patented upconversion technology makes it possible for the first time to bring measurement systems in the mid-infrared (MIR) range from the laboratory into the process in a scalable way and has the potential to realize further, previously unsolved process applications. Photecture Inc., based in Plainview, New York, USA, operates as a strong regional presence for the North American market. For more than 25 years, art photonics has been continuously setting new standards in the development and production of special fibers for optical measurement technology and is one of the technology leaders in this segment.


Sustainable Growth


Based on sustainable growth, Nynomic AG continues to steadily develop as a reliable partner. Short-term sales maximisation at the expense of medium and long-term customer relationships is not desirable. The aim is to achieve sustainable growth both organically and through company acquisitions. The buy-and-build strategy was already the basis for disproportionate growth in the past years, which was significantly higher than the dynamic momentum of the sector. The strategy is reviewed, and internal structures are adapted at regular intervals. The growth driver is the scaling of the product platform, and the growth accelerator is scaling through the series production business. The goal is to achieve double-digit revenue growth every year. In the medium term, sales of around EUR 200.0 million are targeted, with an EBIT margin of 16-19%.


Global active, strong at Home


Nynomic AG’s high export rate attests to its growth in all regions. The group is seeing steady growth in its core markets of Germany, Europe and North America. Through subsidiaries in China and sales partners in other Asian countries, that important market is being directly served and is likewise developing in a very positive way.
