CTEK celebrates 25 years of innovation
CTEK is celebrating 25 years of technological innovation that has placed the company firmly at the forefront of global vehicle charging solutions.
With their continuous drive for new and exciting technological innovation, and with a number of world product firsts and a raft of prestigious awards under their belt, the CTEK story is one of bold vision, keen Swedish entrepreneurship and groundbreaking ideas.
Established in Dalarna, Sweden in 1997, CTEK was quick to market with the launch of its very first ‘smart’ battery charger - a pioneering development which has literally changed the battery charging landscape, setting new standards for charging technology.
CTEK has subsequently gone on to develop a whole host of revolutionary products and solutions including the PRO range of professional workshop chargers; the CS ONE, which remains the only battery charger in the world driven by CTEK’s revolutionary APTO™ (Adaptive Charging) technology; and the CS FREE, the world’s first multi-functional portable battery charger and smart maintainer with adaptive boost technology.
Having acquired Swedish electric vehicle charging specialist CHARGESTORM in 2018, CTEK is also now one of the market leaders in the fast-growing EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment) market, backed by 10 years of experience. Offering complete end-to-end EV charging solutions including hardware, EV network management software, and technical services such as load balancing to secure and distribute energy efficiently within the premises, CTEK is playing its part in driving for a greener future.
Based on its technological leadership, CTEK has established strong and long-standing customer relationships with more than 50 of the world’s most prestigious vehicle OEMs.
The company boasts a strong and growing global presence in over 70 countries, supported by regional logistics hubs offering efficient, responsive fulfilment, all backed by dedicated sales, customer support, training, marketing and after-sales teams.
In 2021, CTEK achieved a public listing on the Stockholm Nasdaq main market, further demonstrating its world leading position within its sector and ensuring the company is ready for the next step in their growth journey.
CTEK’s CEO Jon Lind said: “The CTEK brand is synonymous with top quality, highly trusted vehicle charging solutions the world over, and our success is down to our unique culture that’s based on a passion for innovation.
“Also central to every CTEK product is intelligence, and we are devoted to harnessing the most advanced technology to meet our mission, which is to deliver innovative, safe, flexible, reliable and easy-to-use charging solutions for all types of vehicles.
“As we go from strength to strength, we’re proud that our technological innovations have earned us prestigious awards from the international automotive press, including ‘product of the year’, ‘best in test’ and ‘must have product’, along with a solid reputation for quality and reliability, and the respect of our customers, partners, and peers.
Eva Martinsson, Global Director HR, IT & Service added: “25 years of success is a real milestone for CTEK and is a real reflection of the tireless effort of our teams, who have continued to build our company and maintain CTEK’s market-leading position in such a fast-paced, ever-changing environment. Indeed, it’s courage, dedication, and the genuine enthusiasm of our people that makes us uniquely CTEK, and shines through in everything we do, and every product we develop.”
Jon Lind continued: “We’ve come a long way in these 25 years, but we still have the mindset, focus and energy of a startup! We will never stand still, and you can be assured that CTEK will be pushing forward with renewed commitment, in our pursuit of even greater technological advancements and in our world-renowned product development.”
