NMi is a company that has his roots back in the in the early Middle Ages. In villages and cities were so-called Calibration Masters appointed by urban administrators. The scales, balances, bows, weights and lengths were introduced to check and inspect the goods. All to promote fairness in trade.

Around 1820, the urban Calibration Offices were opened. As far as we know 19 of these offices were opened in the Netherlands, including one in Dordrecht, NL. The calibration offices disappeared over the years. In 1989 we moved from government institution to a private company with a new name, Nederlands Meet Instituut. Later as a member of TNO and present of FDI (First Dutch Innovations).
