a peek behind the scenes
In 1991 Bertram Tigges founded the company in his father’s garage together with his friend Thomas Pösges. A little bit later his brother Martin Tigges also joined the company.
Their goal was to facilitate the handling of heavy vehicles (agricultural as well as utility vehicles) facing difficult terrain conditions.
With increasing orders and staff a bigger office and workshop was needed and found in the inner city of their hometown Neuss.
Due to commitment, team work, endurance, high quality products and continuous development the company grew steadily and turned into a major global player within the business field of tire inflation systems.
In the continuous growth and expansion of ti.systems Mr. Martin Thurnn joins the ti.systems team. He has an office in Dubai and is representing ti.systems successfully in the MENA region.
In 2016, the new company ti.systems GmbH was founded by Bertram Tigges, following a demerger from the former company PTG.
ti.systems’ goal is to focus extensively on utility vehicles (logistics, defense, fire fighting, energy suppliers etc.) while PTG’s expertise lies in the Agricultural market.
With innovation, quality and close support, the familiy-like team of ti.systems enables their customers to experience trouble-free operations on any terrain.
Furthermore in 2016, ti.systems started expanding in the oil- and gas-field sector with many CTISr running nowadays in many fields all over the world.
ti.systems quickly establishes themselves as the benchmark in the private offroad market.
Attending the biggest European offroad exhibition Abenteuer & Allrad in Bad Kissingen every year and expanding the dealer network everyday solidifies ti.systems’ STIS as the go-to tire inflation system in the market.
Antoine, who speaks English, French and Spanish fluently and lives in France, joins the ti.systems team. He successfully drives forward the expansion of ti.systems in France and Spain.
Bertram Tigges’ son Marc Tigges gets appointed as additional managing director making sure that the values and family character of the business get carried on in the future.
Furthermore, chief engineer Thomas Brock is appointed as authorized representative of ti.systems. Thanks to his profound knowledge and experience in the field (he wrote his diploma thesis about CTIS for tractors in 1987) he played a decisive role in the continuous rise of PTG and ti.systems.
