Oneida, Anchor Hocking Merge Under EveryWare Global

Some things will change, but the iconic names, Oneida and Anchor Hocking, will remain as the two brands merge under the umbrella of the newly unified company, EveryWare Global. Brand identities will remain distinct.

Oneida Ltd., one of the country’s oldest tabletop manufacturers and parent of Oneida Foodservice, was acquired last November by Monomoy Capital Partners, the parent company of Anchor Hocking Corp.

The integration of the companies' North American operations is nearly complete, with unified sales forces, customer service, supply chain, product marketing, distribution and back-office operations. In the U.S., EveryWare Global will use a network of factory reps, similar to the structure Oneida used to go to market, to call on foodservice customers. Facilities that manufacture and supply items for the Oneida and Anchor Hocking brands will remain operational.

"We believe we have attractive growth opportunities in nearly all areas of our business and are actively pursuing both geographic and product line expansion,” said John Sheppard, EveryWare’s CEO.

EveryWare’s multi-pronged international go-to-market strategy includes a combination of company-owned and managed operations in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia, augmented by joint-venture partners, brand-license partners and exclusive distribution arrangements located throughout the world.
