The CSA facility is a fully qualified ACCC® Core manufacturing and test facility and joins facilities in California, Indonesia, and China, enabling the company to serve the advanced conductor needs of utilities around the world.

The company selected Asuncion, Paraguay for its fourth ACCC® Conductor Core manufacturing facility to support a substantial increase in demand for ACCC® Conductor in Latin America and support its local and regional customers. Being a centrally located member of Mercosur, the fourth largest trading block in the world, Paraguay is a great place to manufacture and ship to customers located throughout the region.

Mr. J.D. Sitton, CEO, CTC Global, stated, “Paraguay has a visionary government that is committed to a progressive industrialisation program. Many leading companies have located state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities here and CTC is pleased to join them. The Paraguayan workforce is highly educated and very capable and the CSA team has quickly become a valued part of the larger CTC team.”

Mr. Christian Lichtenberg, CSA General Manager, commented, “Constructing this facility, building the CSA team and accomplishing the rigorous ACCC® Certification has been extremely satisfying. I am proud of the entire team and we are looking forward to continuing to grow CSA as Paraguay, and the Mercosur countries grow.”
