The Mission

The CCTI is an international trade association representing the interests of manufacturers of composite paperboard cans, containers, canisters, tubes, cores, cones, fibre drums, spools, ribbon blocks, bobbins and related or similar composite products; and suppliers to those manufacturers of such items as paper, machinery, adhesives, labels and other materials and services.

CCTI is a non-profit international trade association founded in 1933 for the purpose of promoting the common business interests of its members.

This is accomplished by:

Collecting and disseminating pertinent industry performance trends and statistics in areas such as safety, sales, employee wages and benefits, general operating costs, as well as general information on topics of common interest.

Conducting educational programs to advance understanding and practices of the industry in such areas as technology, environmental affairs, safety, human resources and government relations.

Monitoring and taking appropriate action to address government issues potentially having a significant impact on our industry.

Providing training programs of interest to our members.
