In 1951, Stefan Kudelski, a gifted 22-year-old engineer, developed an extremely high quality, miniature, self-contained audio recorder which he named simply the “Nagra I”. Nagra is a Polish word meaning “will record”. The interest in his invention was immediate. The Nagra II and III followed in the mid to late ‘50s revolutionizing the world of radio broadcasting, cinema and music.
In recognition of his contribution to culture and science, the Nagra Company received numerous awards including Oscars® in 1978 and 1991.
The reputation of Switzerland for quality and precision is proverbial. Actually, the Nagra Company was the first in Switzerland to use CNC machines and has always been at the cutting edge of innovation in design and manufacturing.
