Thinktank: Innovation management at KTR

Vision as core competence

A key success criterion will be the ability to identify trends, develop innovations and rapidly initiate production so as to quickly launch products onto the market.

Existing processes and structures are insufficient to make best use of this expertise. This is why KTR has set up a think tank in Hilden near Düsseldorf. On 1 January 2019 a small team initiated activities.

All members of the team have gathered experience in coupling technology and its user industries over the years.

Our task is to identify innovation potentials and markets, to foster new developments
Jochen Exner, Innovation Manager

Close cooperation with the headquarters in Rheine

The think tank team works very closely with our colleagues at KTR's R&D centre in Rheine as well as with Sales and Procurement and, most importantly, with the later users of the couplings.

The first two new developments that the think tank has produced are the SINULASTIC and the EVOLASTIC couplings. You can look forward to further innovations!
