A History of LTI

In 1947, North Carolinian William B. Casey founded Low Temp Manufacturing Company. William had left the family sawmill business to try out a different line of work. Casey was joined in the new venture by Ed Rawls, his brother-in-law, and sister Polly, who owned Atlanta's Refrigeration Exchange Company.

Casey founded Low Temp Manufacturing Company along with his sister Bertha Hammonds. In its first year of operation, the company had only five employees and managed to profit $51.52. Shortly after Low Temp's launch, Low Temp moved from its Pryor Street location to its current home in Jonesboro.

A fire destroyed the Low Temp plant in 1958, almost ending the growing company. Nonetheless, Low Temp continued its operations with a reduced workforce that mainly consisted of family members and a few loyal employees. With the team working out of the basement of a grocery store in Jonesboro, the company survived and thrived.

In 1959, the company built and moved into a new facility at 9192 Tara Boulevard. After that, William Casey became Low Temp's CEO and President, holding the position until he died in 1994.
