The Ruhr – metropolis is amongst the largest and economically most important centres in Europe. The scientific landscape of the Ruhr-area is of an unmatched diversity: dozens of scientific institutions develop tomorrows ideas and products. KAN-Tech uses this innovation cluster to continuously pursue one target: supply our customers with a competitive edge.

Since June 2013 the brothers Philipp and Robin Schlenkhoff have taken over the  management of KAN-Tech. Their two pillar strategy seeks to enlarge the product portfolio and to optimize the customer acquisition. On the other hand they plan to strengthen the research and development unit to lead the ultra-sonic sharpening to market readiness.

KAN-Tech has been selected  as a model for technology companies. The experts of the Technology Foundation Berlin are sure that the technology is perfectly suited for the production of instruments for surgery and razor blades. As well it is able to increase the efficiency of cutting  processes by increasing the endurance of the cutting tools.
