Libbey Inc. Recommits To Downtown Toledo





TOLEDO, Ohio, Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Libbey Inc. (NYSE MKT: LBY) Libbey Inc. has announced it has signed a 15-year lease to keep its global corporate headquarters at Edison Plaza in downtown Toledo, Ohio.  Libbey partnered with Mohr Partners, a global real estate advisory firm, to negotiate the lease. 

"We are pleased and proud to be making a long-term commitment to maintain our global headquarters in Toledo and we thank Toledo Edison and the State of Ohio for their support," said Stephanie Streeter, chief executive officer, Libbey Inc.  "By signing the new lease, we are able to keep Libbey's headquarters in our 'hometown' of Toledo, while supporting our recently announced strategic plan aimed at reducing costs and increasing productivity across our business." 

The State of Ohio also awarded Libbey a $1 million economic development grant for capital improvements and a $200,000 grant to enable Libbey to provide additional workforce training. 

"What we at JobsOhio and the Regional Growth Partnership have accomplished with Libbey is to sustain and grow an industry that is emblematic of Ohio," said Nate Green, JobsOhio Project Manager.  "The natural resources and the workforce are here, both of which are critical to the quality products produced by this company.  JobsOhio recognized this and is proud to be part of the effort to support the heritage and success of Libbey Glass."

"Our collaboration resulted in a competitive lease agreement that will keep Libbey in our Edison Plaza property for many years to come," said Randall Frame, President of the Toledo Edison Company.  "And it will ensure that the Libbey® brand will continue to be synonymous with Toledo and one of downtown's signature buildings, Edison Plaza.  Like Libbey, Toledo Edison has called this region home for more than 100 years and our companies help to make up the fabric of Toledo's business community."

Libbey has also extended its lease with the City of Toledo for its Libbey Glass Factory Outlet store at the Erie Street Market and its lease with CAD Properties for our Libbey Glass Showroom at 335 N. St. Clair.

Renovations in Libbey's new corporate headquarters space are scheduled to begin in late 2012 and will be led by architect and design partner Vocon from Cleveland, Ohio. The redesigned offices will provide associates with a more productive, collaborative and contemporary work environment.  Libbey's headquarters associates will relocate to the new work area in phases, with the new space complete in time to celebrate the Company's 125th anniversary in August of 2013.
