This is the second time a CTG employee and the company have been featured in Process Cleaning in just one month!

To reach this goal, parts must be shipped with little oil and metal particulate, and proper rust inhibitor, all measured in less than 1 mg per part. Cleaning the parts in a cost-effective, environmentally friendly process has been a continuous mission for the company..."
