Nanosurf was founded in 1997 in Liestal, Switzerland, and has since become one of the most trusted and established AFM brands in the market today. While we continue to develop and manufacture our AFMs from our headquarters in Switzerland, we have grown to be a global company with direct sales, service and support operations in China, Germany, India, Singapore, UK and the US. Since its inception, Nanosurf has focused on designing and manufacturing modular, high-quality and easy-to-use AFMs with an excellent price to value ratio.

Several awards have been presented to Nanosurf since its founding, including the 2003 SME Enterprise Award for Northern Switzerland, and Swiss Technology Award in 2007 and 2012. In December 2020, Nanosurf stepped into the high-end sector of the nanotechnology instrumentation market, when it launched the DriveAFM, which was awarded the Wiley Analytical Science Award 2023.

Company culture

Nanosurf is organized in a flat hierarchy, which not only allows quick decision paths and real-time course corrections, but also fosters the feeling of community within the company. We regard each other as equals across hierarchical levels and consider honesty and transparency to be the foundation of our culture. We include our global offices and distributors in regular events to strengthen the relationships among our geographically separated teams and partner network.
