Anchor Hocking Company is a manufacturer of glassware. The Hocking Glass Company was founded in 1905 by Isaac Jacob Collins in Lancaster, Ohio, and named after the Hocking River.
That company merged with the Anchor Cap and Closure Corporation in 1937. From 1937-1983 the company operated the oldest glass manufacturing facility in the United States, established in 1863, in Salem, New Jersey. Anchor Hocking's wine and spirit bottles are crafted at a factory in Monaca, Pennsylvania. It also had facilities in Elmira, New York, and Streator, Illinois. In 1987, the Newell Company acquired Anchor Hocking Corporation.
The company was the sponsor of the radio drama "Casey, Crime Photographer." It was also slated to sponsor television's first late-night talk show, The Don Hornsby Show, before Hornsby suddenly died shortly before its debut.
In 2012, then-owner Monomoy merged Anchor Hocking with Oneida and created EveryWare Global. In January 2014, EveryWare Global announced its plans to close its regional office and the Oneida outlet store, both in Sherrill, New York, with the process starting in April.
The original Oneida outlet store in Sherrill, New York, was closed April 26, 2014. EveryWare Global filed for bankruptcy in 2015. EveryWare Global was renamed The Oneida Group in 2017.
