Cady Bag Company,
LLC was established in 1957 as Cady-Webb Bag Company by William H.
“Harry” Cady, Sr., Nell G. Cady, and Earl G. Webb brother-in-law. Earl
put in 5,000.00 and a two-ton truck and they got a 10,000.00 SBA Loan
to start making cotton and paper mesh bags for the roadside citrus
stands in Florida. Cady-Webb Bag Company was started with six
In 1967, Earl was bought out and the name was changed to Cady Bag
Company and was incorporated. About the same time, the company got a
contract to make sand bags for the Vietnam War ( 65 million in 5
years). Sand bags were first made with osenburg material (treated
cotton) and treated burlap. In 1969 Amoco Fabrics opened a plant 30
miles away in Nashville, Georgia to make polypropylene. Cady was first
to successfully put a pre-printed label in a polypropylene mesh bag.
That sealed a long and fruitful relationship with Amoco Fabrics. As
Amoco grew, Cady grew because as Amoco made new products out of
polypropylene they used Cady to fabricate it and get it to the
In 1982 the Cady children, with a brother-in-law and an experienced,
dedicated staff took over the operation of the company. In 1984 Cady
was one of the first to invest (2 million dollars) in circular
weaving. Circular weaving allowed Cady to start from the resin and
take it to the finished product. In 1990 Amoco withdrew from the leno
market and helped Cady put flat looms, making Cady vertically
integrated in 90 percent of their products. In 1993 the three active
children in the business, with a brother-in-law and an investment
group took over the company and it became known as the Cady Group. By
1998 Cady had grown from 23 million in sales to 48 million, from 125
employees to over 600, and became known as Cady Industries.
In 1998 The Cady Group sold to another group of investors with
intentions to grow the company even further and the last of the Cady
family members left the business.
In September of 2006 William H. Cady, Jr. and a founding partner with
the first acquisition, along with Alonza Cady bought the assets of the
company and changed the name back to Cady Bag Company, LLC.
The Cady Family is dedicated to the reestablishment of this once great
company and is working towards this goal by being the only vertically
integrated leno goods provider in the United States today. We are also
renovating equipment, approaching new markets, and developing
relationships with our off-shore providers to make us competitive in
this fast-growing economy. We will do all that is necessary to service
our customers with a quality product in a timely manner.
Our goal is for all the Cady children, with some of our dedicated
employees, to own and operate Cady Bag Company. With the third
generation starting to come on, we hope to be around for another 50
