Anchor Hocking came into being in 1937 after the merger of the Hocking Glass Company and the Anchor Cap and Closer Corp. The Hocking Glass Company was started by Isaac Collins in 1905 when he and six others purchased the Lancaster Carbon Company after it went into receivership. Additional investment was needed and obtained and soon the Hocking Glass Company began production. In 1924, controlling interests were purchased for the Lancaster Glass Co and the Standard Glass Manufacturing Co. At the time of the merger with The Hocking Glass Company, Anchor Cap and Closer Corp had plants in New York, Canada, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
