Nissen UK Limited, with its base in London, is a subsidiary of Adolf Nissen Elektrobau GmbH + Co.KG which is located in Tönning, Germany. Adolf Nissen Elektrobau was founded in 1914. We are proud to share our 100 year anniversary with all our customers and suppliers. Nissen UK Limited is responsible for sales & marketing of Nissen products in the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Middle East.

Nissen’s era of traffic safety devices began in the mid-fifties when it developed and patented the world’s first road hazard warning lamp in 1956. Since then Nissen became well-known all over the world for a wide range of road safety products and became a market leader.

Our success is attributed to continuous innovation and high quality of products which of course correspond to the national and international standards.


It is our first priority to supply only high quality products and services. Since 1995 the permanent improvement of our high quality level is verified by annual confirmation of our certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001

Storage and logistics centre
A storage and logistics centre including production with over 4200 sqm was built in factory II, Tönning in 2009. This building project was co-financed by the European Union and the European regional development fund (ERDF).

Since we obviously feel very strongly about both, the environment and the health of our customers and employees, 2014 certification of our environmental management system according to DIN EN ISO 14001 was added to that.

Nissen UK is proud to be a member of the following organisations:

REMA is the trade association for manufacturers of retroreflective traffic safety products. The Products provide visual information, day and night, for both permanent and temporary traffic needs.
Founded more than 30 years ago it is the co-ordinated voice for companies involved in the ever-changing traffic safety industry.

Initially created in the summer of 2008, BatteryBack has now established over 18,000 battery collection points, a figure that is growing rapidly by the day.
The BatteryBack network of collection points has benefits for everyone: As a member of BatteryBack, Nissen could arrange a free collection of batteries for all its customers.

  • Consumers can recycle batteries with convenience
  • Battery retailers have a comprehensive free of charge battery collection service
  • Civic Amenity sites can enjoy free of charge battery recycling
  • Schools, colleges and public buildings can show off their green credentials by offering staff, visitors and pupils the chance to recycle batteries free of charge
  • Businesses can also utilise this collection structure and avoid unnecessary costs
  • In collecting such a high volume of batteries, producers can rest assured that BatteryBack will fulfil their obligations in the most cost effective way
  • Ultimately the growing number of BatteryBack collection points will help Britain to meet our recycling targets (we need to increase our battery recycling to over 25% by 2012 and over 45% by 2016)
