TCT Tesic GmbH

Substantial growth and courage to take risks

Like many other companies, TCT too started small, very small as matter of fact: In 1993, Zoran Tesic founded the trading company TCT Industriehandels GmbH with focus on trade with used industrial equipment. He worked out of a small office in the basement of his house with help of a part-time secretary. With hard work he formed the foundation for the present TCT Tesic GmbH.

The company grew constantly and only 4 years later, Zoran built an industrial hall on a 3.000 m² plot of land in the industrial area of Kalthof in Iserlohn. In the meantime the form of enterprise was changed to TCT Tesic GmbH. At that time TCT employed 8 members of staff.

With his team, Zoran expanded the company activities in the coming years. A second hall was built as warehouse. Later an additional warehouse was rented in industrial town of Gelsenkirchen.

Large and complex foundry projects


2005 marks a special date in the history of TCT. In this year, TCT started first time with large and complex foundry projects and so paving the path to present core activity of the company. One year later, a subsidiary was formed in Kikinda, Serbia.

The severe economic recession in 2009 shook the company like many others, but with full support of its staff and courage for risks, TCT came out of this difficult phase stronger than ever.

TCT is strongly committed to the future. Since 2012 TCT has moved to the present location with large industrial halls and ample space in order to cater to future tasks such as repairs and modernization of XXL foundry equipment. Since 2011, Zoran’s son Darko Tesic joined the company and and the former service manager Tobias Manka, has been included in the management since 1st of January 2020.

With effect from December 31, 2020, the “Service” division was sold to extrutec GmbH. The newly founded TCT Induktionstechnik GmbH has taken over all previous services in the area of overhaul, maintenance and service of induction furnaces as well as the production and maintenance of block heating systems for the aluminum industry. The location and the known contact persons and employees remain unchanged. Tobias Manka is the managing director of TCT Induktionsofentechnik GmbH. (link to the news)
Since 01.01.21. the focus of the previous TCT Tesic GmbH continues to be on the international trade in used foundry systems as well as on the dismantling and assembly or relocation of such. A new addition is the commercial agency department, which takes care of the marketing of products and services in the foundry industry on behalf of companies from other industries. On 26.01.21 Darko Tesic has officially been appointed as the company’s new managing director while Zoran Tesic will continue to work in the company as a senior consultant.

The succession is regulated and the Company’s future is assured.
