Antimicrobial Ceramic Dinnerware by Libbey® and Microban®
Libbey Glass was founded in 1818 in East Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1888, Edward Drummond Libbey, son of the first corporate owner, William, moved the company to Toledo, Ohio. The Northwest Ohio area offered abundant natural gas resources and access to large deposits of high quality sand. In 1892, the name was changed to The Libbey Glass Company and the glass city was born.
