Our customer portfolio ranges from global key accounts and medium-sized companies down to small local finishing companies. In 2021, the CHT Group entered the end-user customer business (B2C) for the first time via retail chains by introducing a sustainable household detergent.

With a broad portfolio of different competences, processes, technologies, and products, we serve customers from different industries, and now even end-user customers.

By combining know-how and resources, we position ourselves as a creative solution provider. As a global company, we see it as our responsibility to harmonize the different conditions within individual markets and their participants in the long term by adopting a uniform approach. We do this by implementing our commitment to sustainability in all company areas and markets in which we operate.
