Generation change at CTM | January 2022

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

in the year 2022 you can expect some joy¬≠ful changes at CTM GmbH. These are on the one hand the gen¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tion change at CTM, on the oth¬≠er hand the expan¬≠sion of the prod¬≠uct range and ser¬≠vice offers. The gen¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tion change will take place flu¬≠ent¬≠ly in the busi¬≠ness year: On Jan. 1, 2022, Lars Thom¬≠sen and Thor¬≠ben Will will both join the man¬≠age¬≠ment and become share¬≠hold¬≠ers of the CTM GmbH.

At the end of March, Ralf Tap¬≠ken will leave the man¬≠age¬≠ment and take on new tasks. Lars Thom¬≠sen is known to most cus¬≠tomers and part¬≠ners from the past years as sales man¬≠ag¬≠er at CTM. As a mas¬≠ter boat and ship builder as well as a busi¬≠ness econ¬≠o¬≠mist of the craft, he is a proven expert for all top¬≠ics relat¬≠ed to mod¬≠ern boat build¬≠ing. The acqui¬≠si¬≠tion of CTM is the next log¬≠i¬≠cal step for his future.

Generation change: who are the new faces?

Thor¬≠ben Will, whole¬≠sale and export trad¬≠er and busi¬≠ness econ¬≠o¬≠mist, also joins CTM as man¬≠ag¬≠ing direc¬≠tor and part¬≠ner on 1.1.2022. Due to his exten¬≠sive expe¬≠ri¬≠ence in mar¬≠ket¬≠ing and sales tasks at large Ger¬≠man ship¬≠yards as well as in the sup¬≠ply indus¬≠try, Thor¬≠ben Will will focus on the top¬≠ics of mar¬≠ket¬≠ing and sales. As gen¬≠er¬≠al agent of Gurit in Ger¬≠many, Aus¬≠tria, Czech Repub¬≠lic, Den¬≠mark, Hun¬≠gary and Slo¬≠va¬≠kia for the field of inno¬≠v¬≠a¬≠tive com¬≠pos¬≠ite mate¬≠ri¬≠als and lead¬≠ing tech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy part¬≠ner, CTM will increas¬≠ing¬≠ly focus on the intro¬≠duc¬≠tion of sus¬≠tain¬≠able mate¬≠ri¬≠als in 2022.

With the launch of the Ampro mul­ti-pur­pose epoxy sys­tems with Ampro hard­en­ers and Ampro Bio and SEAL resin, new stan­dards have already been set, the new Prime 37 infu­sion resin with Ampreg hard­en­ers and high bio con­tent rein­forces our sus­tain­abil­i­ty pro­gram in the epoxy area. With the use of flax fibers from our part­ner BComp in com­bi­na­tion with the 100% recy­cled Ker­dyn PET foam, we con­tin­ue to dri­ve the expan­sion of CO2-free com­po­nents. In this area we still have some excit­ing mate­ri­als and projects in prepa­ra­tion, more details will fol­low in the com­ing months.

CTM’s claim to be able to pro­vide our cus­tomers with our prod­uct range quick­ly and at short notice at all times has paid off with the invest­ment in our own Ampreg mix­ing and fill­ing machine and the build-up of stor­age capac­i­ties in a tur­bu­lent mar­ket envi­ron­ment. In spring 2022, we are also plan­ning to move to sig­nif­i­cant­ly larg­er premis­es in the imme­di­ate neigh­bor­hood. This will cre­ate fur­ther stor­age capac­i­ty to enable us to respond even faster to cus­tomer orders in the future.

CTM GmbH is an inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly oper¬≠at¬≠ing whole¬≠saler for com¬≠pos¬≠ite mate¬≠ri¬≠als. As a dis¬≠trib¬≠u¬≠tor of high-qual¬≠i¬≠ty fiber com¬≠pos¬≠ite mate¬≠ri¬≠als, CTM GmbH offers future-ori¬≠ent¬≠ed solu¬≠tions for light¬≠weight con¬≠struc¬≠tion in indus¬≠try, wind ener¬≠gy, marine and med¬≠i¬≠cine. CTM offers its cus¬≠tomers com¬≠pe¬≠tent advice and a com¬≠plete range of prod¬≠ucts for the pro¬≠duc¬≠tion of any fiber com¬≠pos¬≠ite component. 

Due to the many years of expe¬≠ri¬≠ence of the employ¬≠ees, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly in process¬≠es such as infu¬≠sion, cus¬≠tomers can always receive com¬≠pe¬≠tent advice on ques¬≠tions regard¬≠ing process tech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy. The range includes high-qual¬≠i¬≠ty epoxy resin sys¬≠tems from GURIT as well as poly¬≠ester resin sys¬≠tems from Scott Bad¬≠er. Car¬≠bon fiber and glass fiber prod¬≠ucts come from renowned man¬≠u¬≠fac¬≠tur¬≠ers such as Sel¬≠com and Gurit.

Since more and more joints in the future will be made by bond¬≠ing instead of screw¬≠ing, CTM pays spe¬≠cial atten¬≠tion to high-per¬≠for¬≠mance adhe¬≠sives. Here, high¬≠ly flex¬≠i¬≠ble SMP adhe¬≠sives from BOSTIK are avail¬≠able, as well as epoxy-based struc¬≠tur¬≠al adhe¬≠sives from GURIT and MMA-based adhe¬≠sives from Scott Bad¬≠er. The port¬≠fo¬≠lio is round¬≠ed off with the HEMPEL and De IJs¬≠sel brands. Under these brands, CTM offers antifoul¬≠ings, primers and coat¬≠ings for the pro¬≠fes¬≠sion¬≠al user to choose from.
