They have decades of combined experience with all types of materials and equipment. Best of all, they work with clients during every step of the production process. So, your product will come off the line ready for success. Check out what makes CTI such a valuable partner below.

Toll Manufacturing

Toll manufacturing describes an arrangement wherein a company like CTI provides services to a manufacturer. The client provides raw or semi-finished goods to CTI. CTI then performs the services based on exact specifications from the client. Once the client receives the finished product, it is ready for the market. The chief benefit of partnering with a toll coating company is the huge cost savings. Manufacturers do not have to invest in expensive equipment that may only need to perform one step in the process. It is far more economical for companies to outsource a function than invest in expensive machinery. Moreover, these processes are highly complex and require years of expertise. CTI offers both the technology and the know-how to tackle any job. This eliminates staffing costs for the manufacturer.

Toll manufacturing differs from basic contract manufacturing in several key ways. First, contract manufacturing outsources products to a third-party. Unlike toll manufacturing, however, the contract manufacturer typically sources the raw materials. Essentially, the contract manufacturer produces a custom, or white-label, product for the client. Second, contract manufacturers typically package the product for sale and often ship directly from their facilities. CTI acts more like a partner for companies that need specialized equipment or services.
