The Chapple St. plant closed down in 1997, however, Consumers Glass is still in business. They still maintain the building, and it looks like they are currently using it as a storage facility.

    Originally built by the Dominion Glass Company or DOMGLAS (Seen on many signs in the building). Although the facility is new, the company has been in Hamilton since 1864, DOMGLAS was eventually purchased by Consumer's Glass and the plant was shut down in 1997. But like its sister plant in Milton, ON, a warehouse is still active and maintained on the property.

    On October 1st, 2001 Owens-Illinois purchased Consumers Glass, along with all its assets to the tune of 230 Million Dollars
