The CLI Group Purchases Liquid Laminator

In December, 2013, The CLI Group purchased a new Liquid Laminator top coater designed to provide better turnaround time for smaller orders. This machine will be used in our Think Big Digital Printing division due to its superior grade abrasion-resistant top coating for wallcoverings and for the Custom Laminations division for use with upholstery vinyls.

Overhaul of Entire Computerized System

In 2012 The CLI Group overhauled its entire computerized Drive System in the main laminating line.

Through the help of the Paterson NJ Restoration Corporation we were able to upgrade our Drive System in order to compete globally.
