Owens-Illinois Inc. is a Fortune 500 company that specializes in container glass products. It is one of the world's leading manufacturers of packaging products, holding the position of largest manufacturer of glass containers in North America, South America, Asia-Pacific and Europe (after acquiring BSN Glasspack in 2004). Approximately one of every two glass containers made worldwide is made by O-I, its affiliates, or its licensees.

According to Belluck & Fox, Owens-Illinois has been the subject of numerous lawsuits due to the use of asbestos in its products and its manufacturing operations. Its massive glass manufacturing plants such as the one in Brockport, N.Y., used asbestos-containing materials throughout the facilities. In addition, the company manufactured an asbestos insulation product called Kaylo that has been the subject of much litigation. People who worked at Owens-Illinois plants risked exposure to asbestos while working with or in the vicinity of furnaces, ovens, boilers, pipes, valves, and gaskets. Those who were tasked with cutting or sawing asbestos-containing materials were exposed to large amounts of asbestos dust, which floated throughout the plants and put everyone inside at risk of inhaling the deadly fibres. In addition to workers’ exposure to asbestos, family members may have experienced secondhand exposure to asbestos fibres when shaking out and cleaning uniforms.

Former Employee - Procurement Specialist says

"I worked at Owens-Illinois full-time Cons: Leadership was lacking, need to be part of the boys"

Production Worker (Former Employee) says

"Excellent pay but alot to sacrifice for it. Working rotating shifts in a very hot or cold temperature. Alot of the time feeling unappreciated. Union job but not real strong union."

Manager (Former Employee) says

"For an R&D organization the split between impact to the business in 6 months and impact in 5 years was way off. Very little, if any, long term thinking among leadership. Plenty of long term thinking within the engineers and scientists but no one is allowed to pursue their ideas unless it impacts the business in very little time. Cons: No long term outlook on science and technology"
