Anchor Glass

In December 2016, funds advised by CVC acquired Anchor Glass Container Corporation in partnership with BA Glass, a leading European manufacturer of glass containers.

Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, Anchor Glass is one of the leading producers of glass packaging in the United States. The Company produces almost 5 billion glass containers annually across six manufacturing facilities located in Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Minnesota, New York and Oklahoma.

Anchor Glass has long-standing relationships with blue chip companies. The Company particularly focuses on serving the premium specialty segment of the market, which includes craft beer, premium liquor and food.

We are delighted to be working with CVC and BA Glass going forward. The combination of BA Glass's manufacturing expertise and CVC's global network and industry knowledge will be invaluable to us as we enter the next phase of development.
