About Maybrun Mfg. Co. (A Division of Catahoula Mfg. Inc.)
Catahoula Manufacturing Inc. was established in 1989 and has grown to be the premier twine manufacturer in the world. This has been accomplished by providing guaranteed top quality, fast service, unheard of delivery and competitive prices. Although Catahoula Manufacturing makes many products, the main product is twisted seine twine. Catahoula Manufacturing has the capability of producing over 5 million pounds of twine per year.
In early 1990, braided twine and rope (up to 1/2″ diameter) were added to the CMI product line as well as molded fiberglass hoops for the commercial fishing industry.
In 1991, CMI added a netting machine to its equipment to further process twine into netting. This netting is used in fish nets, sports nets and specialty nets.
In 1992, CMI bought a coatings company – Texasphaltic Company- a manufacturer of pipe coatings as well as twine and net treatments.
In 1993, CMI bought its first injection molding machine and added dyeing equipment to its plant. CMI now molds polyethylene floats for the commercial fishing industry, ends for rope spools and other custom molding. CMI also has the ability to dye twine virtually to any color.
In 1995, CMI started developing a line of sports nets for baseball/softball and golf.
In 1997, CMI started dyeing twine Hot Pink, Neon Yellow and Fluorescent Orange for the building trade.
