Founded in the late 1930s by Rusty Gibbons, CTI began as Cement Transporters, a dedicated aggregate hauler based in Rillito, Arizona. Since our early days, our commitment to safety and reliability has been the bedrock of our operations. Renamed CTI in 1978, we have consistently broadened our horizons to meet the changing needs of the industries we serve. Today, we specialize in the transportation of both hazardous and non-hazardous materials, maintaining a strong focus on supporting the mining industry which constitutes 80 percent of our business across Arizona, western New Mexico, and Utah.


Our operations span 17 locations, powered by a dedicated team of over 320 professionals, with 270 based in Arizona. Our headquarters in Rillito, nestled within the scenic bounds of Marana, is more than a base; it’s a symbol of over 90 years of industry leadership. Our new facility, a state-of-the-art 60,000-square-foot building, supports our expansive operations including logistics, customer service, training, safety, and maintenance, alongside our executive offices and human resources departments.


At CTI, we transport critical materials for major clients like Freeport McMoran, ASARCO, and Salt River Materials Group, to name a few. Recent expansions include advanced transloading operations, facilitating efficient material transfer between railcars and trailers. Our investment in cutting-edge technology and equipment underscores our commitment to not just meeting, but exceeding the evolving needs of our clients and communities, evident in projects from highway expansions to essential infrastructure.


As we look ahead, CTI is poised for further growth. Our strategic investments and ongoing enhancements in operational capabilities are designed to propel us forward, ensuring that we continue to deliver unparalleled service and support to the industries and communities depending on us.
