Toll Manufacturing Services Available from the Professionals at CTI
Toll manufacturing is a specialized type of service. As such, it is one that not many providers can handle properly. When product quality is of the utmost importance, there is only one partner you can trust. Conversion Technologies International (CTI) is one of the leading toll coating companies in the world. They offer advanced adhesives and powder coating services and an unmatched commitment to service. Plus, they work with many different material and chemical types during production runs.
Toll Manufacturing – What is it?
To fully understand the value of CTI’s services, it is important to understand exactly what toll coating is. Toll coating is a type of toll manufacturing wherein one company receives a service for a fee from another. The first company provides raw, or semi-finished, goods to a third-party service provider. This provider then performs a service to enhance or add to a product so that the first company can sell them on the market. Typically, the service provider has specialized equipment or chemical expertise that makes this arrangement beneficial for both parties. Quality is essential to this process, throughout the entire production run.
Toll manufacturing differs from basic contract manufacturing in a few key ways. Chief among them is that contract manufacturing outsources products to a third-party. Unlike toll manufacturing, however, the contract manufacturer typically provides the raw materials. The contract manufacturer produces a custom, or white-label, product for the client. Similarly, contract manufacturers often package the product for sale and often ship directly from their facilities. Therefore, toll manufacturers act more as partners for companies that need specialized equipment or services.
