EveryWare Global provides update on operations

Lancaster, Ohio – EveryWare Global is having a hard time catching a break. The troubled company said that on July 8 its Lancaster, Ohio manufacturing plant had a minor molten glass leak in the throat of its Tank 1 glass furnace.
The leak was contained quickly and no injuries were reported, the company said. Repairs have been initiated on the damaged tank, and the company expects Tank 1 to be back up and running in the next week, with minimal related costs.
Additionally, the company has begun the process of re-starting its Tank 3 furnace, also at its Lancaster facility. The company expects Tank 3 to be fully operational within a week.
