In 1999 the New Textile Technologies GmbH (NTT) was founded by Hans R. Bauer. That same year an application for the patent which has since shaped the company’s history was filed - the patent for the elastomeric bonding and coating of textiles. In 2003 a name for this technology was created and SensElast® was registered as a trade mark. From the beginning the ambition has been to establish new, innovative technologies in the textile-sector, which are based on the patent. Today NTT is a textile-technological research and development company and licenser of the SensElast® - technology. The main focus lies on advancing innovative applications and customer-oriented development. To have insight in the development of newest technologies NTT works closely with universities and scientific institutions.
