Nissen Group

True high performance is Group performance

Mobile traffic management presents many challenges for all participants. The Nissen Group bundles its know-how and competences in order to fulfil the different tasks. Profit from the integrated solutions of a central partner.

Nistech develops mobile protective devices in order to secure workplaces on two-lane roads and motorways. Produced in accordance with the high Nissen standard, these structures must pass the strictest tests and examination and persuade customers with numerous, innovative details.

The NissenPlast company is also part of the Nissen Group. It produces the high-quality plastic parts for road safety. The steel elements in products developed by Nissen also come from their own production facility.

Nissen UK

The British transport sector differs from the valid standards in continental Europe in many details. Nissen UK Limited was established in London in 2004 in order to be able to react to this in an optimum manner. Managing Director Ilyas Sharif is also Chairman of the Retroreflective Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (REMA). Nissen UK is also a member of the International Road Federation and local federations such as UK Roads and the Association for Road Traffic Safety and Management (ARTSM).

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.



 Our quality management is certificated to DIN EN ISO 9001and our environmental management since 2014 according to DIN EN ISO 14001.

Certified in accordance with AEO-C since 2011, Nissen offers simplified customs clearance and all the benefits of a reliable, secure and trustworthy business partner.

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).

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)
