Why CTL?

CTL is proud to have a strong relationship with schools and educators throughout the country. We're committed to providing students and teachers the tools they need to succeed in the classroom. CTL has been quietly manufacturing high-quality Laptops, Desktop PC’s, Monitors and Servers since1987 for select authorized accounts, with a strong focus in the education, local and federal government sectors. We have been recognized in Oregon as one of the State’s fastest growing companies in both 1999 and 2000 and were recognized by the Oregon Federal Executive Board as the vendor of the year in 2000 for providing an outstanding level of service to the government. A Pacific Northwest Based Company Like multi-national computer companies, CTL is one of a handful of Microsoft Platinum OEM’s and Intel Premier Providers in the country. Unlike our competitors, however, CTL is headquartered in Portland, Oregon...with manufacturing, sales, and service occurring in our main Portland, Oregon facility…not in another part of the country.

Quality and Consistency

As a privately owned local company, CTL has continuously grown by holding ourselves to a higher standard. CTL desktop PCs, notebooks, and servers are built and extensively tested with top of the line, non-proprietary name-brand components such as Intel; Kingston Memory; and Seagate Hard Drives. We consistently use these component brands because we know that manufacturing a computer with the best components result in the best, most reliable computer. And because the component brands that we use are not proprietary…and because we don’t change component brands based upon the “deal of the day” our computers are easier to maintain, support and upgrade resulting in a lower Total Cost of Ownership.

Highly Responsive, Flexible and Easy To Work With

CTL understands that our education customers each have specific needs, and we’re happy to work with each customer to accommodate IT, Purchasing, Shipping or Procedural requests…we’re highly responsive and do things the way our customers want us to rather than telling our customers how to do them.

Service and Support

Our flexibility extends to the service and support that we offer to our customers.
