CTI was started in 2000 by Jerry Thompson and Bob Rizza who at the time were putting together packaging programs for companies that involved multiple materials. With Jerry’s background in structural design and Bob’s background in print they would develop the best packaging solution for the project based on the restrictions (or requests) of the client or retailer. In 2007 Bob Rizza retired from the packaging arena and CTI’s customer needs had grown into contract packaging. By the end of a busy 2007 CTI leased a building in South Bend, Indiana to accommodate the assembly and blister sealing of various products and Dave Sult became the plant manager in Indiana. In 2012 CTI saw the need to expand into the food market and acquired the certifications necessary to package and handle food. In 2014 CTI purchased a larger building in Bristol Indiana and we haven’t stopped growing and learning since.
