History of TAGARNO
In 1953, Tage Arnø, a producer of cinema projectors, developed a projector for analysis of 35mm X-ray films on a built-in screen. The company was sold, named TAGARNO A/S after Tage Arnø and it then became a limited company.
In the 1970s, the company changed hands again and then bought the only Danish producer of reading aids. In the following years TAGARNO developed and produced analogue reading aids for visually impaired people.
In 2007, TAGARNO launched the world’s first HD-reading aid. Within a few years, TAGARNO launched a line of high-definition digital camera microscopes and thus entered a new line of business within manual visual inspection in the electronic sector. At the same time, an extensive network of distributors was created globally.
Over the next years, TAGARNO kept developing and refining the line of userfriendly digital microscopes and entered new markets such as education and medical inspection. When entering the year of 2013, TAGARNO enters a new line of business in quality control within a wide range of processes in agricultural industries around the world. TAGARNO also introduces the first FULL HD solutions and thereby raises the bar for camera and microscopic solutions for industries around the world.
The Danish fund Insero Horsens, which invests venture capital in private equity in established companies, did in February 2015 invest in TAGARNO, in order to realize TAGARNO's international growth potential. Insero Horsens will henceforth own more than 85 % of the corporation and CEO Ole Lind Terkelsen has a 10 % ownership.
