The CHT Group
Strong company, strong character
Today the CHT Group is a globally acting group of companies focusing on the development, production and sale of specialty chemicals as function generators, auxiliaries and additives for industrial processes. Our products improve the quality, the functionality and the performance of textiles, building materials, paints, coatings, paper, leather as well as cleaning and care products for various application fields. Moreover, we provide the mold making and prototyping industry, medical engineering and the electronics industry with sophisticated silicone elastomers.
Combining of competences
The headquarters of our Group, CHT Germany GmbH in Tübingen, is simultaneously a center of competence for the business fields Textile, Textile Care, Construction and Assembly, and General Industries. Our center of competence for dyes (this product line belongs to BF Textile) is at CHT Switzerland AG in Montlingen, Switzerland.
Since 2017 the centre of competence for polymers has been at CHT Turkey Kimya in Istanbul, and the competence center for paper chemicals has been divided between the Group’s headquarters in Germany and CHT Quimipel Brazil in Piracaia.
The centers of competence aim at combining the strong points of technology and marketing in our Group of companies and at controlling the worldwide business development by applying new technologies and providing technical support. This structure also enables us to continually develop innovative products, applications or processes.
Constant ownership structure
All companies of the CHT Group belong to the RB Beitlich Industriebeteiligungen GmbH (RBI) privately owned by two foundations, namely the Beitlich Familien Stiftung (Beitlich family foundation) and the charitable Reinhold Beitlich Stiftung (Reinhold Beitlich social foundation).
The corporate structure of the CHT Group
In May 2021, the number of operating CHT companies was reduced from 26 to 25. In Brazil, the two companies CHT Brasil Quimica Ltda. and CHT Quimipel Ltda. were merged to form CHT Brasil Quimica Ltda. Both company locations in the greater Sao Paulo area remain unchanged.
