Innovation, the DNA of CTC
CTC was created in 1899 as a research centre, and has continued its work ever since, maintaining a specialisation in the fashion, luxury goods, sport, and personal protective equipment industries.
CTC strengthens its innovation service through active participation in international associations, The International Union of Shoe Industry Technicians (UITIC) and the International Union of Leather Technologies and Chemists Societies (IULTCS).
The Campus - a unique tool at the heart of CTC's innovation services
The CTC Campus is composed of technical platforms and workshops dedicated to the production of leather, footwear and leather goods. This is completed by biomechanical platforms and testing laboratories for primary research as well as the development of new products.
