About us

"We are thinking in terms of generations"- This has been our motto since the early days of NABU-Oberflächentechnik GmbH. Strong growth, conservative values and realistic performance promises are more important to us than rapid success. We see ourselves very connected to the region and its people, therefore it is our responsibility in securing this location. The key to a long lasting success in our eyes is innovation. That is why we are continually investing in the further development of our company.

Long-term cooperation- with our customers and our employees- that is important to us.
