CMTs mission is to supply our customers with on-line and on-site condition monitoring solutions fitting their needs. Our range of products helps the onsite engineers to base their maintenance and repairs on solid information rather than guesswork.

CM Technologies, formerly known as Kittiwake GmbH help prevent unplanned breakdown and maximise plant availability. There are various different on-the-run tools available for condition monitoring:

  • Condition monitoring for operating fluids (lubricants, fuel, water / on-site or in a lab)
  • Vibration Analysis, Acoustic Emission or Sound
  • Monitoring physical properties (speed, rpm, temperature, pressure, power ....)

Most of the condition monitoring technologies can be used as online or offline version whereas both variants do not provide the same results.

The best solution is often a combination of two or three of the condition monitoring tools, but it depends very much on the type of your condition monitoring equipment you have in use, the criticality of that equipment, the running conditions (speed, rpm, temperature ...) of your equipment, and how perceptive your organization is to training.

CM Technologies GmbH, formerly known as Kittiwake GmbH can offer you a complete solution as on- or offline system. We are pleased to help you finding the right solution.

New Logo – stronger identity

To strengthen our own identity and to avoid any mistaken identity with other companies in the industry we have changed our company logo and colours. The positive feedback we have received from our customers on the SMM shows that this has been the right step for CMT and our future endeavors.

Who we work with

Strategic partnerships with leading industry organizations including MAN and Wartsila are testament to our market-leading capability. As a long-time condition monitoring technology provider to these partners, they have come to rely upon CMT's ability to research, develop and manufacture innovative condition monitoring technology solutions that offer consistent results.

What we’ve achieved

CM Technologies GmbH, started under the name Kittiwake GmbH, have recorded impressive growth in the last fiscal year. These strong figures were supported by continued growth across our global network, and underpinned by continued and successful product innovation in the area of condition monitoring.

Where we’re going

We see the offshore oil and gas markets as key for future growth, as well as significantly investing in research and development to increase and improve our range of products for the marine and related industries. It is clear that amid fluctuating fuel costs and economic uncertainty, assuring reliability and durability can result in huge cost savings, and CMT continues to play a critical role in achieving this. With continued expertise and ingenuity from our dedicated workforce around the world, we expect to continue to grow substantially in the following years.

Quality assured manufacturing with a focus on continuous improvement
Ever since CM Technologies GmbH was founded its paramount objective has been to manufacture and sell only high-quality products that reflect the state-of-the-art technology and meet customer requirements, with the aid of motivated employees. This self-imposed quality obligation and our experience in conditin monitoring technology have enabled us to succeed in achieving a prominent market position. In line with the aspiration to continue to guarantee the highest degree of quality to our customers in future and not only to cement the reputation of our company and related market position, but to enhance it further, we introduced a quality management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001 across our entire company. In addition, we would like to fulfil our customers’ requirements by maintaining a very close partnership with them, demonstrating that customers can rely on us and that we deserve their trust.

Environmental protection and sustainable development

Since CMTs foundation we have aimed at eliminating the waste of resources and have implemented this as part of our company policy. This has been a pioneering step for a company out of the Condition Monitoring industry. These guidelines ensure:

  • Efficient use of energy
  • Prevention of environmental pollution
  • Compliance with current as well as future environmental legislation
  • Recycling and simultaneous reducing of waste
  • To handle natural resources with care, especially restrained use of energy and materials
  • Reduce of emissions
  • To design products with minimal lifelong effect to the environment 

Our Internal Environmental Management System which complies with the requirements of ISO 14001 was created to accomplish these goals.

In the course of the improvement process CMTs environmental policy is regularly reviewed and judged by set objectives. In periodic meetings the employees are informed about this policy and its objectives.

We publish our environmental policy on our company website to show that we take our commitment seriously.
