NYFORS highlights in the past three decades: Click here for our timeline.

NYFORS was founded in 1987 by Uwe Böttcher, the former head of Fusion Splicing research and development at LM Ericsson Fiber Optics, to design and manufacture fiber preparation equipment.

The fiber optical cable between the Swedish mainland and the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea was one of the first major telecommunications projects in which NYFORS participated. This pioneering project was carried out in close collaboration between Televerket and Alcatel, with NYFORS providing the on-board fiber recoaters.

In 1988, NYFORS launched the first commercial optical fiber recoater in the world. During the 1990´s and the 2000´s, a number of products used for stripping and preparation, cleaving, recoating and proof testing of optical fiber were developed. Today, our machines and instruments are used for volume production and within research and development operations. Our customers are found within a wide range of industrial sectors, from aerospace and telecom to medicine, as well as public and private research institutions around the world.

NYFORS has received the highest credit rating – AAA – from the leading Swedish credit- and business information company Soliditet for the financial year 2019 and 2020.


The AAA-rating indicates financial stability and the capability by a company to repay loans – both long and short term – and is only awarded to limited companies that have existed for at least ten years, with a turnover higher than two million SEK and with financial ratios substantially higher than industry average.

NYFORS is ranked among the top five percent of Swedish limited companies with the highest credit worthiness. The same AAA-credit rating was awarded to NYFORS for several financial years among them are 2007/08, 2008/09, 2010/11, 2011/12, 2014/15, 2016/17 and 2019/20.

Corporate social responsibility for us means to take social, ethical, economic and environmental responsibility for our business and to make a contribution to the development of society.

To this end, we have chosen to support  Situation Stockholm, a non-profit organisation that exists to offer homeless people in Stockholm the opportunity to earn a legitimate income and a chance to rebuild their lives. The organisation produces and distributes a monthly magazine, which homeless street vendors buy for 25 SEK and sell for 50 SEK, thereby earning them a profit for every sold copy.

Any post investment profit generated through the sale of the magazine or the sale of advertising is passed on to charity work within the organization.

The organisation currently supports a large number of homeless people in Stockholm and the magazine is read by over 145 000 people every month.

Nyfors Teknologi AB is located 15 kilometers to the south of Stockholm, Sweden. (Click here for contact details and map.)

The company is named after nearby stream which has been used as a source of power for industrial production from late medieval times up until the last century.

With a height of fall of about five meters, the Nyfors rapids are among the largest and most accessible ones in this part of Sweden. In the early 16th century, an iron works was established on this site. Later other industries followed, such as a gun powder manufacturing plant for the Swedish army, spinning mills and a pulp and paper production plant, thus making Nyfors an important early modern industrial center of Stockholm.

Today, all industrial activities at the Nyfors stream have ceased. As a part of the Tyresta Nature Reserve the rapids now provide a home to some rare species of birds.
