The company was founded by Bengt Wahlquist in 1997. First knowned as Runtech, than later changed to Coulombi Chargers and finally as of today, CTEK.
CTEK´s headquarter, with departments in sales, marketing and product development, is located in Vikmanshyttan, Dalarna in Sweden. This is where all of the product development takes place – everything from sketches, construction, design and software to package design, manuals and marketing materials. Vikmanshyttan is also the base for the international sales force and all international transports and material purchases.
CTEK is a young and innovative company that makes products that, with the help of the latest proven technology, safely easily and professionally care for and maintain batteries. As a company CTEK chargers have gone from being an accessory for enthusiasts to a mainstream consumer product. CTEK´s goal is to produce the world´s most sold battery charger. CTEK is world leaders in this area today, and want to continue to be world leaders in a future for batteries and energy storage.
In 2002, soon after the German sports car manufacturer Porsche launched its first battery charger onto the market, the company showed an interest in CTEK’s new battery chargers. One year later the first OEM-battery chargers were delivered. Mercedes also named CTEK as the official partner after an extensive evaluation of alternative suppliers. Several have followed. Alfa Romeo, Artic Cat, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lexus, Maserati, Maybach, Rolls-Royce, Scania and Yamaha have also chosen to use CTEK’s battery chargers under their own brand.
The major part of CTEK´s production takes place in three contracted factories in Shenzhen, China. Here, Swedish, Norwegian and Chinese colleagues work together to secure production, quality and the safe delivery of CTEK´s products. When CTEK´s products have been produced, packaged and approved for delivery, they are loaded onto a boat for transportation to the central warehouse in Ghent, Belgian.
A typical CTEK customer is a mid-age man with a keen interest for cars, but basically anyone with a lead-acid battery who wants their battery to store and give energy when they need it. This group is enormous and extends all over the world.
