CAGE, Inc.

Cage, Inc. became a part of Ross & Baruzzini family in 2017


Founded in 1997 by the former President and Senior Vice President of a major baggage and material handling systems supplier, CAGE Inc. brings specialized engineering experience in aviation support systems. Officed in Irving, Texas, the company’s primary professional services focus on planning, design, procurement, installation, and commissioning of complex automated baggage handling systems (BHS), explosive detection and trace detection systems for baggage security screening, aircraft parking and movement planning, and aircraft gates support systems including Passenger Boarding Bridges (PBB), 400 Hz ground power, Preconditioned Air (PCA), and potable water systems. CAGE has delivered advanced engineering solutions in more than 140 airports worldwide including 90 percent of the largest US airports and iconic international airports throughout the Middle East, Canada, and South America.

Ross & Baruzzini acquired CAGE, Inc. in 2017. Carl Clause, Chairman and owner of CAGE during the acquisition, said “We know Ross & Baruzzini well, having worked together internationally for years. I know the strength of their organization and believe in their growth strategy which will provide a platform for CAGE to build its brand globally.”

Craig Toder, Ross & Baruzzini’s Chairman remarked, “CAGE has a highly specialized technical capability that is rare in the industry and fits our growing client base of airports and airlines. They have a terrific staff, a proven management team, and some of the best clients in our industry. It’s an exceptional fit for us.”


Carl and Gene left leadership positions at BAE, a global baggage handling system manufacturer, to found CAGE. They picked the company’s name by combining the first 2 letters of their first names. They recognized a shortage existed with airport and airlines staffing resources to successfully manage the development and implementation of complex baggage handling systems (BHS) so they started CAGE to fill that void.
