Controlled Release Technologies, Inc. is a customer-service oriented, maintenance materials manufacturer, specializing in extended HVAC maintenance products and coatings. Our mission is to educate all HVAC users, and provide them with innovative, proactive solutions to preventable HVAC problems.
CRT was originally established in 1985 to help facility managers and engineers at a large Central Florida Resort solve problems associated with poor HVAC system hygiene, which was affecting clients and their equipment maintenance budget. The resulting product developments were designed to be installed by anyone, without outside contracting help. This equated to high quality results with the lowest amount of expenditure.
The company took this idea, and relied on its research and development department headed by a PhD Chemist, to create multiple products to fight HVAC maintenance problems. CRT holds numerous patents and certifications, and continues to demonstrate industry leadership in innovative manufacturing.
CRT operates a 36,000 square foot factory and warehouse, 30 miles west of Charlotte, NC. Being a central transportation hub, this location allows CRT to quickly supply all customers with the solutions they need. CRT products are shipped both nationally and internationally, and are used throughout the U.S., South America, Australia, Europe and the Far East - from the Taj Mahal in India to the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City.
