Plant Enna munchen was founded in 1920 by Alfred Neumann. The name is the initials of the founder.

After his death in 1945, the company continued to exist under the management of his son, Dr. Werner Appelt. The Enna plant produced lenses, projectors, spare parts for them. In 1958, the plant released the fast lens Lithagon 35mm f1.9, and in 1961 the world's first zoom lens 85-250mm f4. Enna developed the connection for Edixa, Praktica, Exacta and the Examodelle line of lenses in 1958, which subsequently sold under the names Ennalyt, Lithagon and Revuenon. Anna also produced lenses for Porst (Revue) and Quelle.

At the 1972 Olympics in Munich, the company was one of the "official" suppliers and decorated its products with the emblem of the Olympic Games accordingly. After this time, Enna Munchen (Enna Werk) moved more and more towards the design and production of technical plastic parts in small and large series, first in the field of photography. The company still exists today, developing and manufacturing lens lenses, electronic and auto components, parts for medical equipment, parts for bicycle helmets and laboratory equipment, filter elements and office supplies, and overhead projectors.
