Swiss-based Sanitized is increasing its innovation expertise by appointing a new CTO, Martin Cadek, who will oversee global technological activities for the specialist antimicrobial hygiene brand. Cadek will lead the company’s competence centre for technology innovation and will focus on breaking new ground to develop innovations in sustainability. 

Cadek is a graduate physicist with a master’s degree in polymer science with many years’ experience in the industry working with polymers, fibres, industrial textiles, and extruded polymers. He is joining Sanitized from his most recent role as managing director for German subsidiary the Flint group. His previous roles include the global head of innovation for energy and polymer systems at Evonik/Orion, the head of extrusion technology business unit in Europe for Emerell, and work with the SGL group, the company said in a press release.

The Competence Centre for Technology & Innovation will provide services to all three of Sanitized’s business units: textiles, polymer additives, and coatings and preservation. It will be built on top of Sanitized’s TecCenter for analytics, microbiology and applications and its regulatory department. 

“Cadek understands, lives and breathes our philosophy of thinking and acting with customers and solutions in mind, where sustainability plays a crucial role,” Michael Lüthi, CEO of Sanitized, said.

“I believe that it is important for Sanitized’s customers to benefit from the company’s technological and innovation expertise in more ways than just products. The team at Sanitized also provides the industry with reliable and expert assistance in using our technologies. I am also keen to establish fresh long-term relationships with new customers and partners to bring the benefits of working with Sanitized to a wider market,” Cadek said.
