The Spotswood glass plant started life in 1872 as the Melbourne Glass Bottle Works Company with glass made from sand mined at Fishermans Bend. Over the course of a century it transitioned from the Melbourne Glass Bottle Works Company, through to ACI which was acquired by Owens Illinois Inc in 1998, later changing its name to O-I. Although pure glass is made from sand, limestone and soda ash, O-I Australia’s glass products contain an average of 40% recycled glass. Stunning mountains of colour coded crushed glass line one side of the factory. As part of the Art & Industry Festival, a limited number of enthusiasts are invited to tour the furnaces of molten glass.
