Anniversary: 30 years of PRO-TEC
With a handful of chemo-technical products and a clear goal in mind, the success story of PRO-TEC began in 1988 in Augsburg, Bavaria. The fact that the highly effective workshop brand of the bluechemGROUP has developed from there into the global technology leader in vehicle chemistry is due, above all, to the untiring work of Werner Urban, President of the bluechemGROUP. Thanks to his clear vision, his strong hands-on mentality and his unstoppable entrepreneurial spirit, the highly effective products of the renowned quality brand were quickly launched in Germany and soon thereafter all over the world. He explains: "My goal was to make PRO-TEC products the standard vehicle chemical equipment for every car repair shop. Right from the beginning, I have focused on innovative and sustainable formulations that have proven effectiveness – that was my recipe for success, and it still is today!" A plan that worked: A short time after its launch on the German market, PRO-TEC had around 12,000 customers. Over the years, this development continued internationally, making the brand a global partner of the automotive industry. Thanks to more than 120 general importers, PRO-TEC is now available on all continents.
The concept: highly effective products and more!
What began in 1988 as the "handful of products" has become an extensive portfolio over the years that allows a variety of cleaning, maintenance and care applications for various automotive system cycles. Whether fuel system, oil circuit or automatic transmission – PRO-TEC offers comprehensive solutions that ensure the mobility of a vehicle. Thereby, there is a coherent concept connected to every application to integrate it easily into everyday workshop life. Werner Urban comments: "PRO-TEC enables a workshop to solve numerous problems for its customers with minimal effort. The PRO-TEC concept comprises highly effective products and stands for a comprehensive workshop system!" All products made in Germany are produced by CTP GmbH, founded in 1999 in Leutenberg, Thuringia. The PRO-TEC headquarters including training center and development workshop is located in the immediate vicinity.
The future as a goal
For 30 years, millions of customers worldwide, both workshops and wholesalers, rely on PRO-TEC. The bluechemGROUP celebrates this special anniversary together with them and with all partners and employees. For Werner Urban, however, the focus is already on the future: "PRO-TEC has come a long way, but that is no reason for a break. With innovations, know-how and commitment, we will continue to work constantly for the success of our workshop brand!"
