Innovation is in Our DNA

For more than 100 years, O-I has innovated and transformed how glass packaging is made and sold, starting with Michael Owens’ invention of the machine that enabled mass production of glass containers in the early 1900s. Owens revolutionized the industry then, and we’re doing the same today as we reimagine and reinvent the business model for glass packaging. We see a future where the innate circularity of glass meets O-I’s disruptive MAGMA melting technology. We continually transform our business to be the most innovative, sustainable, chosen supplier of brand building packaging solutions. We turn the ordinary into the extraordinary through glass packaging.

Committed To Sustainability

Now more than ever, consumers demand safe and healthy packaging. We’re focused on advancing our sustainability agenda by reducing energy emissions, increasing recycled content in our containers, and investing in the communities we serve.
