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.
Separately, the company's Monaca, Penn. facility, which was partially reopened on June 2, was temporarily closed for planned maintenance over the July 4th holiday weekend. The Monaca facility has not been reopened, and no decision has been made with regard to timing for resuming production.
