Working for multi-nationals like Ciba Specialty Chemicals and Huntsman Textiles Effects throughout his career, Matthias has gained technical, marketing and business experience around world. In addition to other assignments, he lead the Teflon textile venture between Ciba Specialty Chemicals and DuPont as well as the Global Business Unit Textile Finishing.
Then, in 2008 he forsook the corporate world to start up Beyond Surface Technologies AG, establishing a team of textile and chemical experts who are now engaged in researching, developing and producing. The sole business model behind this is, quite possibly uniquely, to support the textile industry to „reduce its impact on the environment“. A never ending journey that they passionately embarked upon.
