Art-glass manufacturer to move production to Tijuana
Portland-based art-glass manufacturer Uroboros Glass has been sold to Oceanside Glasstile and will have production of its products relocated to Tijuana, Mexico.
Uroboros’s new owner is based out of Carlsbad, California. The company has been making glass for 25 years, according to its website.
“Their company culture embodies the unusual combination of aesthetic understanding and a well-grounded, responsible manufacturing ethic,” Eric Lovell, Founder and President at Uroboros Glass, said in a statement posted on the Uroboros website.
Per the current timetable, the Portland facility will stop making sheets of glass by February and resume after moving equipment to Tijuana in May.
Uroboros is the second major Northwest glass-maker to be sold to Oceanside Glasstile. Spectrum Glass, based in Washington, announced its sale in September.
