Zanesville Ohio O-I Glass Plant Tank Rupture

Recommended Posts

Not sure this is the right place for this, but, it appears a tank has ruptured at the O-I (former B-Glass) plant in Zanesville.

It says:

"In the past two weeks, Taylor said members of every fire department in the county toured the glass plant to prepare for a possible rupture, which the company had apparently been aware could happen, he added."

Maybe they repaired this tank with those fantastic refractories they got from China that were the cat's meow. Especially the price. I believe O-I has gotten rid of about everyone that had a clue as to how to make a good bottle. I hope the people that are working at their plants now, somehow survive these oversights management seemed to make without a blink of an eye. Good people sent down the road in the name of saving a buck. Brockway Glass ran a fantastic operation and then KKR saw a chance to ruin yet another profitable company in the name of making a few rich. As we all know money talks, and the few responded and the rest speaks

for itself.

I've worked there a lot, good down to earth hard working people. I've seen them keep a spray of water on the cracked areas of the tank to keep it from rupturing. This must have been a doozie break, too bad. Usually a rupture into the basement is better than a rupture back onto the tank floor, but this must have been a huge break.

Zanesville was always a "good" plant back in the B-Glass days.

Props to you, DuBoiser.  I left B-Glass just before the move to Jacksonville and honestly cannot remember plant numbers outside those in Brockway any more.

Only because after 3 1/2 years of being a Cost Accountant at Brockway Glass MO all the plant numbers are now engrained in my head.

My dainty little daughter worked for a summer cleaning tanks at Brockway Glass.  She always amazes me.
