Owens Brockway, a division of Owens Illinois Glass Container North America, Toledo, Ohio, has recently reopened a 1906-vintage glass bottle plant in Brockway, Pennsylvania, which had been closed since December 2000. Production in the newly refurbished plant began on 15 April 2002, two weeks before the official re-opening on 30 April. The plant will be making clear glass bottles for Miller and Smirnoff Ice, and plans to make green glass bottles for Rolling Rock Beer in 2003.
