About NTTF

Explore Our Journey

Dr. Heinrich Hellstern, Director of HEKS (a Swiss NGO), with his noble gesture, set the ball rolling for opening a technical training institute at Nettur, Tellicherry (Kerala), in 1959. The Nettur Technical Training Foundation (NTTF) was founded in 1963. NTTF is the repository of active technical support and knowledge transfer from the Swiss industry and training institutions. The seed was sown 50 years ago - the decision to start tool and die-making courses in Tellicherry. Today, it has grown into a successful productive plant, surpassing even the oddest expectations. The foundation has successfully developed over the years, ensuring technical training that meets the needs of our society.
