Carbon brands don’t get anymore boutique than Schmolke and THM Carbones, so it should come as no surprise that the two companies have joined forces.
Indeed, Schmolke announced this week that it has acquired THM Carbones from 3T Cycling, who bought the carbon specialty company almost four years ago.
Under the merger, Scholke and THM Carbones will continue to produce and sell its German-made carbon components under their respective names.
“THM has the best knowledge in the RTM (Resin Transfer Molding) process for almost 25 years. Together with our 28-years of experience in the prepreg vacuum process we will manufacture every new product using its best suitable process,” said Stefan Schmolke, founder of Schmolke Carbon. “I will only merge both development departments so that we can offer our new ideas faster to the demanding cyclist. Further I want THM to produce more MTB parts again.”
Rene Wiertz, the CEO of 3TT said, “we enjoyed working with THM on expanding the model line, improving the distribution network and streamlining production in both Germany and at our own carbon factory in Italy.”
“Now is the perfect time for us to focus on the Italian factory and for THM to grow further with Stefan’s support.”
