This year a team of Anchor Hocking’s co-workers, friends and family joined over 50,000 people participating in the Komen Columbus Race for the Cure. Anchor Hocking’s main headquarters are located just outside of Columbus, OH. A member of the sales and marketing team put together a group, over 50 members strong, for the event. Anchor has also supported the breast cancer cause with inspiring products, including the Hope Mug and Hope Double Wall with a pink lid. In addition, the bakeware line supports the cause with a pink lidded Batter Bowl and ribbon shaped cookie cutter, pink 16oz Measuring Cup and pink 5oz Measuring Glass all available through seasonal retail promotions in the fall.

Thank you to everyone who participates and supports this cause. Like many, this cause is near and dear to The Anchor Hocking family’s hearts.

I was at Target admiring Giada De Lauentiis' new product line, when I noticed the Giada ground coffee packaging. On the side of the package is a delicious cup of specialty coffee in an Anchor Hocking Cafe Mug.

What's On Your Desk?

Posted by CR on Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Working at Anchor usually means your office or cubical is chalk full of Anchorware. Many of us use mugs and glasses for organizing pens and pencils.

Since the café mug comes in three colors I keep one of each on my desk, that way pens, sharpies and graphic markers stay separated.

I use a vintage Anchor divided dish to keep my push pins all in one spot and my paper clips from getting entangled with binder clips.

Other things that keep me inspired adorn my desk, like fabrics from Knoll, a vintage typewriter and this year’s hottest pantone color swatches.

This is a photo that was sent to me from my friends Dennis and Sarah. It is a decorated café mug that anchor developed with William Sonoma. When empty the snowflakes on the other side of the mug frame the male deer head that is shown in the photo.
