The company Guenter Enderle/NEKTON-Produkte, Germany is a family business that has been in existence since 1967.
It began as a pet store especially for avian breeders and expanded to an import / export business with authorized quarantine station supplying zoos and pet stores Europe wide with birds in the main and a smaller selection of reptiles, amphibians and mammals in 1969.
As pet food supplements and species-oriented avian diets were practically unknown at that time, Guenter Enderle, the Company owner and proprietor and breeder of birds and dogs, began experimenting with his own formulas of vitamins, proteins, minerals and carotenoids, drawing on personal experience and that of other breeders and experts.
