CTEK was formed in 1997, and is a sister subsidiary to Creator Teknisk Utveckling AB (a leading consulting firm within design and development) which was formed in 1982. Our battery knowledge began to form in 1992, when a leading battery manufacturer hired Creator for research and development of batteries and later for research on a new system of battery chargers that would meet the requirements of battery charging and maintenance of new generations of batteries. The research and development programme ended when an American group acquired Creator’s customer. Creator understood that the now patented system represented a fantastic business opportunity all over the world. It was then that CTEK was formed to design, develop, manufacture and market its own battery charger.
