About CTC International, Inc.

CTC is a well-established manufacturer of custom engineered Unwinds, Splicers and Rewinds. Founded in 1961, our first product was the unwind tension compensator – now familiarly know as the “800C”. There are over 10,000 of these units in operation globally.

From this beginning, we have expanded greatly into the automation of virtually any web fed converting process. CTC custom engineers machines for automating the raw material, finished product, and waste byproducts in a range of industries. Our equipment can be found in Tag & Label, Packaging, Film, Nonwovens, Building materials, Wire & Cable, Food, Cosmetics, Composites and a range of other applications
