Clinch-Tite was founded in 1955. The "Clinch-Tite" name was derived from an acquired Swedish Patented Pallet Technology ("Clinch-Lok"). Pallets were manufactured by sub-contractors between the years of 1955-1958.
Clinch-Tite pallet manufacturing began at our Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania location in 1958. Wooden pallets and containers were the sole manufactured items until 1986. Clinch-Tite diversified into all forms of packaging materials and equipment in 1986.
The employees and management of Clinch-Tite Corporation are proud to announce our new name. Clinch-Tite Corporation will now be known as CTC Packaging.
This change was driven by how our customer’s view and use our vast design, distribution, product-development and production capabilities. For more than 60 years we have co-authored unique and cost effective supply chain packaging programs that reduce the total cost of acquisition and ownership of all packaging, pallet, crating and Supply Chain requirements.
