Küttner Holding GmbH & Co. KG and Martin GmbH für Umwelt- und Energietechnik have announced the foundation of a joint company, Küttner Martin Technology GmbH, based in Munich. Küttner and Martin will each hold 50 % of and jointly manage the new company, which will specialize in the sale and construction of plants for the thermal treatment of municipal sewage sludge.
Both companies have long-standing experience as plant manufacturers in their respective fields of activity, as they say. Küttner contributes fluidized bed technology, tried and tested for the thermal treatment of sewage sludge, as well as expertise in the optimization of the overall process. Martin offers a wealth of long-standing experience in the thermal and biological treatment of residual material as well as an extensive network of local and global contacts. By combining their business activities in the field of thermal treatment of municipal sewage sludge, the two partners will achieve optimum synergies, thereby offering their customers a wider portfolio and a full range of services.
While the purpose of the new company is to globally handle projects for the thermal treatment of sewage sludge, in the beginning activities will focus on the European market. However, in Asia there is also a great demand for and interest in municipal disposal solutions, which is why the company will be looking to find suitable partners for this market.
“This logical step makes us much more flexible and faster when it comes to supplying the technologies of choice for this rapidly growing market”, explains Dr. Ing. Christian Bartels-von Varnbüler, managing director and shareholder of Küttner Holding GmbH & Co. KG.
“Küttner and Martin are combining the success stories of two German SMEs to provide effective solutions for the thermal treatment of sewage sludge, thanks to their customary high quality levels, while at the same time setting new standards”, adds Ulrich Martin, managing director and shareholder of Martin GmbH für Umwelt- und Energietechnik.
