Anchor Hocking Glassware

Anchor Hocking has manufactured high quality glassware in the USA for more than 100 years!

Founded in 1905, Anchor Hocking is a leading manufacturer of glass products including beverage ware, candle containers, serving ware, oven ware, storage ware, and lighting components. You've probably seen and used their products at sometime in your life. They usually carry the little anchor logo. The company is the second largest supplier of glassware in the United States.

The company, which manufactures a majority of its products in Lancaster, Ohio, has made a corporate-wide commitment to being more environmentally friendly by:

• Reclaiming on average 25% of waste glass to reuse in their furnaces. That means fewer raw materials, less energy and less landfill waste.

• Making changes in the design of their packaging to reduce environmental footprints.

• Working with core suppliers to reduce waste and consider environmentally friendly alternatives.

• Making glassware that does not contain lead or any other materials that are harmful to health.
