Spectra GmbH & Co. KG


Spectra was established in 1982 and has since then developed to become a renowned supplier of products directly and indirectly related to industrial computer applications in Germany. The company took its first steps as a system house. Later on, the distribution of PC hardware and the development of customised industrial PC systems were added.
