Senator Sherrod Brown Visit

Posted by CR on Friday, July 8th, 2011

Today was quite the exciting day at Anchor Hocking Company's Plant 1, in Lancaster, Ohio. We had a special visit from Senator Sherrod Brown in the afternoon.

He was welcomed in our showroom, where Channel 10 News asked him questions, and a local newpaper photographer snapped shots of the event.

Brown then went on a tour of our factory with our President, Mark Eichhorn as well as our CFO, Mark Hedstrom.

On his way through Plant 1, factory team members were all smiles to see the Senator in their historic factory.

Senator Sherrod Brown not only learned about glass making, but also glass decorating. Here, Eichhorn shows Brown one of our most popular and time tested pieces, the Fire King Measuring Cup.

The Senator is quite proud of Ohio's rich manufacturing history, and was thrilled to hear that we've managed to keep our main plant in the same location since our origination in 1905.
