From pioneer to market leader

Nissen is one of the leading suppliers of solutions for mobile road safety in the world. The foundation for this was laid over 100 years ago. In 1914 the company’s founder Adolf Nissen began to develop ignition systems for cars and registered patents for this in several countries. In the middle of the 1950s Nissen Elektrobau GmbH entered the traffic management industry.

The breakthrough came with the development of the first electric warning lamp. Further innovations such as control devices for automatic systems, confirmed the reputation of the company as a pacesetter for progress. Nissen expanded over the next decades – both on their original site and with branches opening in England, Switzerland and other countries.

Nissen not only drove the development of innovative technologies like LED in road safety but also played a significant role in the unification of road safety regulations. Thus its name stands like no other for pioneering solutions and comprehensive know-how in traffic management around the world.
