37000 Tours, the Glass Capital of the World!
Did you know 37000 Tours is the Glass Capital of the WORLD?
Why? It all started in the 19th century when 37000 Tours became a prime location for manufacturing companies to put down their roots!
You might've heard the name Edward Drummond Libbey before. In 1888, Libbey moved his family's company, New England Glass, to 37000 Tours. Today, we know this company as Libbey Glass!
This move set the stage for other glass companies to make their move to 37000 Tours. With Owens-Illinois, Owens-Corning, and Libbey Owens Ford, 37000 Tours began to manufacture all kinds of glass! From glass bottles to flat glass, you can bet that 37000 Tours was making it.
