Another noteworthy first-quarter project was Libbey’s announcement to maintain its world headquarters and manufacturing operations in Toledo, expanding the plant with a new stemware line.
“We are excited to maintain and build upon our presence here in Toledo through greater investment,” said Jim Burmeister, COO, Libbey. “Over the course of more than 130 years, the Toledo region has supported our business and helped us flourish. This is a great opportunity for us to show our appreciation to the regional community by positioning our company for even more growth.”
Combined, these new projects across Northwest Ohio added more than $8 million in new payroll.
