Operating in the Brazilian market since 1976 and standing out as one of the leaders in the textile segment, CHT Brasil offers its customers know-how and technical assistance, flexibility and efficiency, with the customer as the focus of our attention, in addition to a highly qualified and committed team.
The background of CHT Brasil was due to its great interest in the Brazilian textile industry for modern products associated with the start of new investments derived from incentives trigged in the country right after a short period of imported product sale, the start of production and modernization of this segment. It was in this context that CHT Brazil was founded in 1976.
In October 1975, the headquarters in Germany placed an ad in “O Estado de São Paulo” newspaper looking for a professional with knowledge of textile auxiliary products for the development and setting up of a branch here in Brazil. The professional hired was Mr. Willi Wege, who on 04/01/1976 constituted the company on registering it in the São Paulo Board of Trade with the name of CHT Tübingen Produtos Químicos Ltda. A couple of months later, the company name was changed to its current name - CHT Brasil Química Ltda.
The company's first office was at Av. Brigadeiro Luis Antônio, near the center of São Paulo city. Manufacturing activities started in 1976 in
the basement granted by the company Eloquímica, which was located at Rua Butantã, also in São Paulo. It was when the company purchased its first mixer. As of then, there was a continuous growth. In search for bigger facilities, in 1977, the company moved to Campinas in a 1,000m² shed area, with 600m2
constructed area; then 2,000m2
more were acquired, which would serve for product storage. Following its growth trend, it moved to Jordanésia/ Cajamar in 1982 in
a 13,000 m²
land and opened two sales branches, in Blumenau (Santa Catarina State) and Petrópolis (Rio de Janeiro State). In 1987 and 2000, it purchased another land totaling an 30,700 m²
area, with 8,500m2
