Change of name into KTR Systems GmbH

Dear Madam or Sir,

KTR Kupplungstechnik GmbH will change its company name into KTR Systems GmbH as of January 1st, 2017. The company has strongly expanded in almost all business sectors over the past few decades: we developed the product portfolio widely placing it on the four pillars "drive technology", "brake systems", "hydraulic components" and "cooling systems"; extended our range of services; expanded the headquarters in Rheine considerably; established KTR Brake Systems GmbH at its location in Schloß Holte-Stukenbrock and enhanced our international activities in the fields of production, logistics and sales significantly. As a result of this process the number of the KTR employees has meanwhile increased to more than 1,000 persons worldwide.

The next pioneering step toward the future will follow now. The change of name will underline the diversity of our range of products considering an increasing systemic importance. At the same time we show the global markets, but above all our customers, that we are willing to assume more responsibility in machines and plants.

Being the legal successor, KTR Systems GmbH will automatically and fully take on all rights and obligations from KTR Kupplungstechnik GmbH. KTR Brake Systems GmbH will be continued under its name as before with the company logo and the claim "Made for Motion" remaining unaffected as well as the VAT number. Rheine will remain the company's headquarters, with only the address being changed from Rodder Damm 170 into Carl-Zeiss-Straße 25 in 48432 Rheine.

The change of name does not have any effect on our cooperation. Should you have any questions in this context anyhow, please contact us.

Yours faithfully,


Martin Platt
General Manager Sales
