Great History, Great Future.
CTC has passed many milestones. Here are some of the more important ones.
In spring 1923, three young engineers in Göteborg start manufacturing heating products. The company is named CTC after the initials of the founders, Celsius, Tellander and Clarin.
The name CTC has since been linked to the Latin phrase “Cum Tentatione Corrigendi”, meaning ”ongoing improvement”. Although this meaning was added later, it is very apt considering CTC boasts almost a century of development and improvement.
CTC develops a heating boiler that heats water with a battery. Production commences in Ljungby, Sweden.
CTC starts producing water heaters and boilers for wood and coal. Its subsidiary CTC Wärmespeicher GmbH is founded in Germany. This marks the real start of CTC’s export business.
Following various restructuring operations and collaborations with other companies, CTC starts manufacturing washing machines under the brand name Wascator.
CTC launches its first combination boiler with double combustion chambers for oil and solid fuel.
A new production facility opens in Ljungby. R&D is transferred there from the head office in Göteborg.
