Brief History on Anchor Hocking Glass:Anchor Hocking first came into existence in 1905 and was known as Hocking Glass Company. In 1924 the company also purchased controlling interest in the Lancaster Glass Company (later called Plant 2) and the Standard Glass Manufacturing Company with plants in Bremen and Canal Winchester, Ohio.

Hocking Glass Company entered the glass container business in 1931 with the purchase of 50% of the General Glass Company, which in turn acquired Turner Glass Company of Winchester, Indiana. In 1934, Hocking and its subsidiary developed the first one-way beer bottle. Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation came into existence on December 31, 1937 when the Anchor Cap and Closure Corporation and its subsidiaries merged with the Hocking Glass Company. The Anchor Cap and Closure Corporation had closure plants in Long Island City, New York and Toronto, Canada, and glass container plants in Salem, New Jersey and Connellsville, Pennsylvania. Anchor Hocking later acquired the Baltimore, Maryland based Carr-Lowry Glass Company and the west coast Maywood Glass.

The word "Glass" was dropped from the company´s name in 1969 because the company had evolved into an international company with an infinite product list. Earlier in 2001, Newell Corporation entered into negotiations with Libbey Glass for the purchase and transfer of Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation. After months of negotiations, Libbey Glass withdrew their offer in the midst of serious objections by the federal government. Anchor Hocking celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2005!
