About Cat-i Glass Manufacturing
Cat-i Glass Manufacturing can trace its roots back to Elgin Precision Glass (EPG) founded by Carl Jaynes in 1965. EPG started out producing automotive air conditioning sight glasses in a barn and eventually grew into a thriving business housed in a 144,000 square foot facility. EPG was sold in the late eighties but the concepts endured. In 1995, Cat-i Glass Manufacturing emerged to carry on the EPG mission. Our engineering and management group has in excess of 25 years of glass experience. With its core being made up of previous EPG employees, Cat-i Glass has come a long way since the barn. In early 2006 we became ISO 9001:2000 registered. In January 2007, we relocated to a new 75,000 square foot facility. Cat-i Glass employees use their knowledge and initiative to provide quality parts that meet or exceed our customer’s expectations.
