Circle Redmont® History

Circle Redmont’s product history traces back to the late 1800s and includes contributors and predecessors American 3 Way-Luxfer Prism Co., Owens Illinois Glass Company, Products Research and Chemical Corp, Circle Steel Partition Company, and Rudy Redmont. The Sandor Family took control in the 1960s and set about positioning and building the company as the national and international expert on integrated structural glass panel systems. Patented processes and products were developed that eventually became an industry standard for monolithic, embedded glass panel systems. In the process, Circle Redmont® also became the historical restoration experts for glass paver, glass bullet, and glass plank panel construction.

In 2021, Circle Redmont transitioned the business to the next generation of ownership.  Circle Redmont then became a DBA and brand of products manufactured under the new company identity of Light Penetrating Systems.

If you have walked on glass pavers in concrete, glass bullets in cast iron sidewalks, or spans of glass in museums and transit stations, you likely have experienced our products.
