CGS continues its aggressive growth trajectory with the purchase of CamGlass
WORTHINGTON, OH (OCTOBER 4, 2021) – Custom Glass Solutions, LLC (“CGS”), a leading glass manufacturer focused on transportation applications, announced today that it has acquired Cameron Glass, Inc. (“CamGlass”). The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 1978 by Jim Cameron, Owner and President, and his father, Roy Cameron, CamGlass is a glass fabricator based in Broken Arrow, OK. CamGlass offers a wide range of tempered glass products including flat, press, sag, and cylindrically bent systems for applications that include agricultural equipment, construction equipment, marine and basketball backboards. The company employs 125 people and has operated in Oklahoma since its inception.
“As a family-owned company, CamGlass shares similar values and beliefs as we do at CGS,” said Neale Yeomans, Chief Executive Officer at CGS. “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.”
Jim Cameron added, “We are excited for what the future holds. 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.”
Jimmie Cameron, son of Jim Cameron, who has held various roles at CamGlass since 1994, will continue on with the business as Business Unit Director.
Fabricating windshields in Ohio since 1974, CGS has been on an aggressive growth trajectory since being acquired in October of 2018 by affiliates of Stellex Capital Management LP, a private equity firm that invests in middle-market companies in North America and Europe. Since then, CGS has expanded its footprint in Ohio, acquired NASG Holdings Inc., and is actively focused on organic growth and business optimization.
“The acquisition of CamGlass is another important step in achieving CGS’s strategic growth objectives,” said Mr. Yeomans. “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.”
