CTI was founded by Lyle Small in 1993 after graduating from Cornell University. “Seeing the potential of incorporating color-changing capabilities into primary packaging, Lyle devoted his time developing press-friendly ink systems with thermochromic and photochromic properties,” said Ms. Edwards.
“Since then, resources have been devoted to developing new-to-market ink and coating offerings, setting CTI on course to be the leading supplier in innovative ink systems to the consumer packaging market.”
CTI strives to provide the highest level of customer service by offering innovative products and technical expertise.
CTI aims to set itself apart from the competition by investing heavily in R&D and expanding into new markets.
“CTI has an unyielding drive to be the leading manufacturer of specialty inks and coatings in the market,” said Ms. Edwards. “It is that drive and focus that keeps us always looking for new trends in the market and finding solutions to meet our customer’s needs. We continue to expand our workforce in order to continue to offer new and innovative solutions, while delivering our message to converters and brands throughout the globe. We also maintain a strong commitment to R&D, which is a key to our position in the marketplace.”
