As of June 1, 2021, The Oneida Group, Inc., now known as Anchor Hocking Holdings, Inc., completed a significant restructuring of its corporate organization. The Oneida Group sold Oneida Consumer LLC to Lenox Corporation. Customers of the Oneida Group, Inc., Anchor Hocking LLC or Oneida Consumer LLC may have been familiar with its corporate structure.  Prior to the sale, The Oneida Group, Inc. operated as the parent company for Anchor Hocking LLC and Oneida Consumer LLC.  

Following the sale, Lenox Corporation now owns Oneida Consumer LLC and all its assets including all Oneida branded flatware, dinnerware, cutlery, cookware, bakeware and gadgets.  The Anchor Hocking glass business remains unchanged.  The Oneida Group, Inc. has changed its name to Anchor Hocking Holdings, Inc.

However, as part of the consideration for the sale, Anchor Hocking LLC retains an exclusive license to sell, distribute and supply Oneida branded cookware, bakeware and gadgets. Lenox Corporation and Anchor Hocking LLC will maintain a valued partnership whereby Anchor Hocking will sell and manage the Oneida brand for these licensed product categories. There will be no market disruption in these categories. Anchor Hocking LLC will remain the vendor of record for Oneida branded cookware, bakeware, and gadgets.  Oneida flatware, cutlery and dinnerware have been transitioned to Lenox.  A transition agreement is in place to further help facilitate this transition. Any customers in these categories are encouraged to reach out to their Oneida representatives for further information or questions.

A final caveat to note relates to kitchen tools and gadgets.  Customers may be familiar with the existing license agreement between Robinson Home Products and Oneida. Starting January 1, 2022 that license will end and RHP will no longer supply Oneida branded kitchen tool and gadget products.  Anchor Hocking LLC will assume RHP’s position and operate as the licensee as discussed above.  The table below shows the post-sale structure of our consumer categories. Specialty glass and foodservice also remain unchanged.
