In early October, Custom Glass Solutions, LLC of Worthington, Ohio, acquired Cameron Glass Inc. of Broken Arrow, Ok.
Cameron Glass, also known as CamGlass, was founded in 1978 by Jim Cameron and his father, Ray Cameron. The company employs 125 people and offers tempered glass products, including flat, press, sag and cylindrically bent systems for a variety of industries.
“As a family-owned company, CamGlass shares similar values and beliefs as we do at CGS,” says Neale Yeomans, Custom Glass Solutions’ CEO, in a company statement. “In many respects, CamGlass is a perfect fit for CGS as we continue to expand our offerings. We are thrilled to welcome the CamGlass team to the CGS family.”
According to the company statement, Jim Cameron’s son, Jimmie Cameron, will continue with CamGlass as business unit director. He has held various positions with the company since 1994.
“We are excited for what the future holds,” says Jim Cameron in the company statement. “I have been impressed with the depth of expertise of the CGS team and feel this is the next best step for our business to continue to grow. I am excited for our employees and our bright future with CGS.”
Custom Glass began “an aggressive growth trajectory” in October 2018 when the company was acquired by Stellex Capital Management LP, a private equity firm. Custom Glass then acquired NASG Holdings Inc. in Pennsylvania.
“The acquisition of CamGlass is another important step in achieving CGS’s strategic growth objectives,” Yeomans adds in the company statement. “With CamGlass, we enhance our tempering capabilities and our ability to offer value-add assemblies, allowing CGS to be a one-stop shop for customers’ glass needs. This acquisition will create significant value for our customers and employees.”
Custom Glass operates three facilities in Ohio and one in Pennsylvania.
