For four generations, Nedo and its owners, the Fischer family, have stood for fairness, reliability and a focus on customers.


Engineering expertise

The path from idea to production-ready product is often long and difficult. From the initial design to final testing by critical craftsmen and surveying engineers, a ten-member interdisciplinary development team has to solve a host of problems and work out creative solutions. Engineers and developers apply in-depth knowledge and experience from areas such as mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, mechatronics, optics and optoelectronics. In addition, a broad-based manufacturing know-how is applied to the development process, ensuring already in the development stage that our products can be manufactured economically and at a consistent level of quality.


Special attention is placed on simple and intuitive handling, reliability under harsh site conditions and functional design. Developers and engineers have won a number of prizes for excellent design, including the Red Dot Design Award and the Baden-Württemberg International Design Prize. Nedo are proud of their achievements and determined to maintain these standards in the future.


Manufacturing know-how

Nedo manufactures high-tech products at plants in Dornstetten and Switzerland. Its highly motivated employees receive continuous further training and use state-of-the-art technology. By means of Nedo’s continuous improvement process,  employees are constantly finding ways to optimise company operations.


Instead of relocating our production to low-wage countries, Nedo have made substantial investments in our plants in Germany and Switzerland, and have continuously improved the competitiveness of their production locations through rigorous cost management. Thanks to large vertical range of manufacture Nedo are independent of suppliers to a high degree. Production processes which are critical to product quality are kept under the direct control of our employees rather than being outsourced to other companies. For customers this means highly reliable products, strict adherence to delivery deadlines and flexibility when it comes to fulfilling special requests.
