"We also do 100 percent of the jars for Mott's apple sauce and we've just signed a long-term contract with Lidestri Foods to provide the jars for their spaghetti sauce," said Michael Sopp, general manager of Anchor's Elmira Heights facility.

Although most of the containers made at Anchor Elmira Heights come from generic molds, several customers have private molds, which are made at Anchor's Ohio facility at the customer's expense, Sopp said. These specialty molds are kept and maintained at the local plant facility.
"The glass formulas are the same for each customer, so it all gets down to quality and service," Sopp said.
Secret to success
Sopp, with 37 years in the glass industry, has been general manager at Anchor Elmira Heights for 23 years. For 10 of those years, dating back to 2002, the company has re-invested $76.8 million in capital projects at the local facility.
Those projects have included furnace rebuilding, installing new individual section machines and new cooling systems for the factory's air compressors.
The equipment upgrades and other improvements are all part of Sopp's "Master Plan" - give employees a safe and clean working environment to maximize efficiencies and output.
"Over the years, the industry has become more computerized and has gradually gone from mechanical to electrical," he said.
