     History
    Built in 1980 it was one of seven glass plants owned and operated by Consumer's Glass. Consumers Glass was aquired by the Owens Illnois Group early in 2003. The Milton plant was focused mainly on beer bottles. After the loss of a massive contract with a brewery the company was forced to close the Milton plant in 2004.
