We are thrilled to announce that René Johansen has been appointed as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) at Cotes. In this pivotal role, René will oversee Wind Energy, Battery Manufacturing, Other Industries, Marketing, and Technical Support. His leadership and vision will be instrumental in driving growth and ensuring Cotes remains at the forefront of these dynamic sectors.

The Wind Industry


In recent years, the wind energy market has experienced strong global growth across the onshore, nearshore, and offshore markets. With over 20 years of experience in the wind industry and partnerships with some of the biggest names, Cotes has been pivotal in protecting assets and maximizing the operational uptime of wind turbines. Under René's guidance, Cotes is poised to solidify its leadership in the wind industry.

Battery Manufacturing


Battery manufacturing, especially for electric vehicles (EVs) and renewable energy storage, is a rapidly expanding industry. The demand for high-performance, sustainable batteries is driving significant investments and innovations. However, the sector faces substantial challenges, including increasing competition from Asia. Cotes Ultradry Adsorption Dehumidification offers the European battery industry a valuable opportunity to reduce energy consumption in battery manufacturing. This innovation could significantly advance sustainable battery production in the EU, providing a crucial competitive edge in this growing market. 

Other Industries


The demand for energy-efficient dry-air solutions is increasing, reflected by the rising interest in Cotes adsorption dehumidifiers. However, global economic pressures are straining supply chains and various industries. In this context, product innovation and business development will be critical drivers of growth in the coming years—a challenge René is familiar with from his extensive experience in the wind industry.

"I am incredibly proud and grateful for the opportunity to serve as the CCO at Cotes. I am eager and excited to embrace this new challenge and contribute to the company's continued success." – René Johansen, Cotes CCO
