OKTAN design history

In September 2012 I founded OKTAN design with the ambition and strategy to work as an independent consultant in Management and Manufacturing for major global customers. 

Having worked for over 25 years for both large and small global companies in the Automotive, Telecom and Consumer Products industries, I realized that there was a need and want for the special knowledge and experience I had acquired. 

From the get-go, the rumor of OKTAN design traveled through the industry and gave us a flying start across the globe. We realized that there was a need for technical, process and management support from local team members, and thus we established a local office Guangzhou, China in 2013. This has been of major importance for our European and US customers. 

In 2014 we finalized and launched several of our main services, such as the Education Package “Training Sessions” covering Coating, Paint Shop & Application and Coating Process & Production. We also launched the OKTAN method, an analytical working method focusing on evaluating and improving performance in both manufacturing and management. We continuously work to refine our services to provide the best result for our clients!   

Up until now we have a major list of references from global companies which we have successfully worked with. Our clients choose us because we challenge convention to find the solutions that really work – in practice, not just on paper. Right now, we are preparing for the next step in our journey and the future is bright!
