In the past years Ostthüringische Materialprüfgesellschaft für Textil und Kunststoffe mbH (OMPG) developed into a company which more and more became active in translating research results of Thüringisches Institut für Textil- und Kunststoff-Forschung e.V. (TITK) into practice beside their original testing services business.
This comprised own production activities for batch production, marketing of these small production batches and the active launch of new product developments. It is envisaged to boost these activities in the future.
In the past it has been found that marketing new products under the name of "Ostthüringische Materialprüfgesellschaft für Textil und Kunststoffe mbH" frequently gave rise to questions and confusion among potential prospects.
Therefore the activities outside the testing services business are bundled under the roof of smartpolymer now.
smartpolymer GmbH were formed by a demerger from OMPG and were capitalized with EUR 250,000. OMPG is the sole shareholder of smartpolymer GmbH. OMPG remains a full subsidiary of TITK.
Your contacts at TITK and OMPG will remain your contacts at smartpolymer GmbH.
The management of smartpolymer GmbH is transferred to two long-term staff members.
Christoph Löning was Managing Director of Plauener Spinnhütte GmbH and AP Fibre GmbH. Ute Schubert has been working at the divisions of Finances and Controlling at TITK and OMPG for several years. Ute Schubert will remain head of the Finance division of the TITK Group.
Ralf-Uwe Bauer who will still hold the role of Managing Director of TITK and OMPG will assume a consulting function towards smartpolymer GmbH.
