About us

CVT, the specialist for ceramics and carbon


CVT had its origins in the company Sintec Keramik. This was sold to the US company Kennametall around 10 years ago. CVT was founded from the development department which had been retained, together with existing and new patents; today the company has more than 30 years of experience in the field of “gas to solid” technology.


CVT employs around 40 employees and is globally active. Our customers come from a wide variety of different sectors which use innovative and advanced technologies. Our team is distinguished by its depth of expertise and many years of experience. In addition however, we are fast, industrious team workers – this is why we have chosen the bee as our company mascot.



Our customers usually work at the boundary of scientific possibilities, frequently under pressure in terms of time and costs. We know this and have adapted ourselves to our customers’ requirements: fast, reliable and high precision work is our daily working mode. We are diligent, friendly and believe in cooperation - both within our own team and with our customers and our suppliers. Because if you’re pushing the limits of technical possibility, you always need a team you can rely on.


The collective spirit, the shared determination to push forward our customers’ projects and deliver intelligent fast solutions unites our team, as does their love for nature (and the Bavarian mountains which are right on our doorstep).
