Brockway Machine Bottle Co. and Brockway Glass Co. Society for Historical Archaeology
Research Facts
From its opening in 1907, the Brockway Machine Bottle Co. was a product of the mechanized era. As the name implies, the company was formed to manufacture bottles by machine.
Initially, of course, Brockway only made wide-mouth bottles by semiautomatic machines, but the plant installed narrow-mouth machines in the early 1920's.
Brockway became one of the leading bottle producers in the U.S. and finally merged with the Owens-Illinois Glass Co. in 1988.
