Reed visits Anchor Glass

Congressman Tom Reed is trying to explore the challenges companies face in the Southern Tier. Our Bill Mich was with the Congressman as he toured Anchor Glass in Elmira Heights.

Anchor Glass provides the glass bottles for some of the most recognizable food and beverage companies in America like Sam Adams, Mike´s Hard Lemonade and Mott´s Applesauce. But even with such a large client base, there are still concerns for the company.

"We´re neat, we´re clean, we´re organized, we´re doing what we are supposed to do. But it comes to a point of reality. Anyone of these machines can be pulled out and moved to our sister plants if we aren´t competitive," said plant manager Michael Sopp.

Congressman Tom Reed is out to ensure businesses like this stay local and is visiting manufacturers to hear about the challenges they face and what he can do to help.
