Why do you believe your products are beneficial to the police community?
CTECH has served the racing community since our beginning with the best engineered and manufactured aluminum storage solutions for mobile applications. With the introduction of SUVs as a major player in our law enforcement fleets, we saw storage needs and wanted to provide a light-weight, safe and secure solution. CopBox offers added inventory control to officers’ gear, efficiency of knowing everything’s location across a fleet, and added safety to the officers in collision and high speed circumstances, all produced with the same quality that has built our reputation in the racing community. We want to provide a securely mounted central location for all the officers’ needs in the field.

CTECH Manufacturing builds our cabinets, carts and drawer units for a mobile application rather than putting a cabinet built for a static purpose in a mobile application.

Lightweight aluminum construction with the strength of a steel cabinet, our Radius corners, MotionLatch™ locking system, powder coated finish and the lifetime warranty to the original purchaser.

CTECH is a racing-bred company built by racers for racers. Our pit carts are seen daily in most racing events from NASCAR to NHRA to ALMS, as well as local racers. Racers demand the best support equipment to be winners and effective. The business has been driven by customer needs, which has evolved our business to what it is today while still maintaining the same high quality and durability required of racers.

The CopBox has been our newest addition to the CTECH family array of aluminum storage solutions, with great reviews and a superior product we feel it will become a large part of what CTECH is moving forward.
In our other divisions we have created a proprietary caster system for our mobile carts. Known as the BadAss caster, allowing for loaded down carts to be pulled with ease over all terrains. Included is our FlatFree tire, which is a closed cell foam design which never needs air or goes flat while increasing the load capacity from a traditional air-filled tire.
