Decades of Industry Experience
Former President Charles Glew had many years of experience participating in the development of low-smoke and fire-retardant compounds for other companies before founding CCG in 1998. With high demand for CCG’s low-smoke, flame-retardant crosswebs, tapes and other extruded products, the new company expanded quickly.
Just years after moving into a larger plant in Pawcatuck, Conn., CCG moved again in 2009, settling into its current 58,000-square-foot facility. CCG purchased the extruding lines of the building’s former occupant, Hi-Tech Profiles, and soon after expanded into the optical fiber industry after purchasing assets from XtremeFiber.
In 2016, CCG invested $3 million to develop two Buss Kneader lines that provide the ability to compound materials at below-standard temperatures, enabling foaming agents and high levels of flame retardants to be incorporated into products without degradation. CCG also has two high-temperature, twin-screw lines for compounding FluoroFoam®.
Today, CCG continues to expand its capabilities by developing new compounds, as well as high-performance jacketing, insulation and more, with product characteristics that are attractive for Power over Ethernet (PoE) applications. CCG is also producing yarns and nonwovens with broad applications for filtration, pipelines, textiles and industrial furnishings.
