The Hazel-Atlas Glass Company was founded in 1902 in Washington, Pennsylvania, due to the merger of four companies: Hazel Glass and Metals Company, Atlas Glass Company, Wheeling Metal Plant , and Republic Glass Company. By the 1930’s, Hazel-Atlas had fifteen plants and was the largest glass manufacturer in the world. It continued to make containers, glassware and tableware until the 1950s. In 1956, Hazel-Atlas was acquired by the Continental Can Company.
