Our Name

Nanor, comprised of two parts representing our company and initial business areas. The first is Nano– originating from our Nano-positioning products within our Motion Control business area. The second part is Or– The Hebrew word for light, which represents our Photonics business area.

Our Heritage

Nanor’s heritage dates back to 1967 when Instrument AB Lambda was established by Franz T. Cohn to import and market scientific and laboratory instrumentation. A natural development was the extension to photonics components into a sister company, Lambda Electronics AB. With the advent of imaging analysis and its many scientific, medical and industrial applications, Parameter AB was formed to become the center point while the laboratory instrument business was sold off. In the early 1990’s Michael Cohn (Franz’s son) joined the company and, after Franz retired a few years later, Michael assumed the role of CEO.

Over the years, Parameter grew to become the leading supplier of Machine Vision and Imaging products as well as Motion Control and Photonics. Its base of operations expanded from Sweden to eventually include all the Scandinavian countries as well as Finland and Poland.

In April 2014, Parameter’s Machine Vision and Imaging department was sold to Stemmer-Imaging GmbH in Germany. At the same time, Michael Cohn established Nanor AB to continue supplying top-tier products within the world of Motion Control (Positioning) and Photonics.

On September 30, 2022, Nanor was acquired by Tillquist Group AB. Nanor operates as a subsidiary of Tillquist Group who is a specialized technology trading company that offers its own products in measurement technology while also distributing high-quality products and systems within Energy, Power Automation, Machine Builders, Process Automation, Photonics and the Electronics Industry.
