Home /  About Us

For more than 50 years CTL Packaging has provided the highest quality plastic tubes in the European market. We work with our customers to develop high-end plastic tubes, unmatchable decoration capabilities and continuous innovation for both extruded and injected molded elliptical & oval plastic tubes.

In our US plant, we launched the latest cutting edge innovation in plastic tubes called the ESTube (easy supply tube), the ultimate solution for the plastic industry. ESTube is an injection molded plastic tube, with an in-mold label. This technology combines superior decoration, improved supply chain performance with optimal run sizes and reduced lead-times for either cylindrical or oval tubes, overall, the lowest TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) tube solution in the tube market.

CTL Packaging USA can supply from both ESTube and its extensive extruded portfolio, being able to provide a complete packaging solution for any of its clients.

History:

CTL Packaging is a family owned packaging company established in 1964. It specializes in the manufacturing of plastic tubes and injection molded closures for high end cosmetic, personal care products and pharmaceutical industries.
 
The company has been in operation for more than 50 years with two manufacturing operations in Spain and one in France. Currently it ranks third amongst European tube companies with sales over 500 million tubes per year and employing some 750 people.
 

Mission:

Position CTL Packaging USA, as the preferred choice for customers in the plastic tube market in North America that seek a high degree of service, superior decoration capabilities and are driven by value.
 

Why CTL:

Innovation: We are in the forefront of tube innovation, constantly developing new technologies for tube applications. Using state of the art technology and high precision robotics, we manufacture Injection In – Mold Labeled Polypropylene tubes out of our Dallas North Carolina facility.
 
Decoration capabilities: Printing on a flat IML film either on flexo or digital technologies, allows us to achieve superior decoration, which we apply to both our elliptical and cylindrical tubes.
 
Supply chain: Our proprietary and exclusive technology, provides high process repeatability (ensuring quality), reduces lead times, allows small MOQ’s (5,000) and thus provides faster speed to market for our customers. The overall reduction in delivery time, the reduction of MOQ’s and the speed to market, translates into lower costs of ownership for our customers.
 
Sustainability: CTL Packaging strives to be eco-friendly in its production processes. We use 100% PP material on our ESTubes, which has the lowest CO2 emissions by weight of all plastics, and in return, lowers greenhouse gas emissions. The manufacturing process is then shortened due to less production energy required. The entire ESTube is Code 5 recyclable (Head, sleeve, closure, label).
 
Extensive Portfolio: CTL Packaging USA can supply ESTube or any of its extensive extruded tube portfolio, providing a complete packaging solution.
