Our vision

Automated, certified truckload cleaning is designed to raise cleanliness standards in logistics to a new level across the board and conserve resources such as water, energy and time.

We founded KATMA to automate truck bed cleaning and save resources such as water, energy and time.


The KATMA CleanControl developed by KATMA innovates the cleaning of truck beds by replacing manual cleaning with a high-pressure cleaner with a faster, fully automated solution.


Due to the mechanical process, we can always guarantee the best cleaning results.

No fixed costs

KATMA does not incur any fixed costs. We only charge per use with our pay-per-wash model. Cleaning is possible from €26.


Thanks to our fully automated process, loading compartment cleaning can not only be planned precisely, but is also possible from as little as 3 minutes.


Thanks to the standardized use of water and chemicals including recycling, KATMA saves up to 75% water, up to 90% chemicals and up to 60% energy


Every single wash cycle is automatically digitally logged and certified.

Usable 24/7

Cleaning is available 24/7 thanks to online booking and self-sufficient use without the need for staff. Thanks to the standardized process and our booking system, we can guarantee optimal planning.


If you see a KATMA CleanControl on the side of the road, remember: behind this machine is a bit of chicken coop, a pinch of innovation and a whole lot of doer mentality - welcome to KATMA CleanControl.

If we had to define ourselves in one word, it would be "problem solver". That's why close communication with our customers is so important to us. This is the only way we have been able to respond to so many of our customers' requirements and wishes during development. KATMA CleanControl and its ecosystem, from certification and full service to route-optimized booking, are optimally designed to meet your needs. Sounds too good to be true?

Our history

After observing the inefficient manual cleaning of truck trailers in Rietberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Felix and Patrick Kathöfer developed an automated solution based on their knowledge of the industry. The need for standardized, certified cleaning and the waste of resources confirmed their hypothesis. In 2019, they started developing a prototype in a converted chicken coop. In 2021, Felix and Patrick finally founded KATMA as a limited company and hired their first employees. Since then, KATMA CleanControl has been working on a cleanliness revolution in logistics with its fully automated cleaning machine. They received patents and became a member of Transfrigoroute Deutschland e.V. Recognized with awards and strengthened by partnerships, KATMA has also employed its first apprentice since 2023 and is proving its market relevance with a customer-oriented pilot series.
