Lenox Will Close Stemware Plant

Lenox will close its last crystal stemware manufacturing plant in the U.S. by the end of January 2002.

Lenox Inc. will close its last crystal stemware manufacturing plant in the United States by the end of January 2002, the company announced recently. The company said last month it was considering closing the plant in Mount Pleasant, Westmoreland County, Pa., because of falling sales of fine crystal stemware. Lenox crystal is used at White House dinners and in every American embassy. The plant was built in 1970 as the first glass factory built in the nation devoted to hand-blown lead crystal. The company employs 158 workers at the plant. Lenox will continue to market crystal glassware and gift items under the same brand names by importing production from Europe, the company said. Lenox Inc. is based in Lawrenceville, N.J., and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Brown-Forman Corp., of Louisville, Ky.
