Pyrex Parties in Pennsylvania
May 19, 2015,
CHARLEROI, Pa.–Charleroi, Pa., has been temporarily renamed Pyrex, Pa., in honor of the Pyrex’s 100th birthday.
Charleroi Mayor Mark Alterici, World Kitchen CEO Carl Warschausky and Pyrex Brand Lead Mike Scheffki serve pancakes.
Charleroi has been producing Pyrex products for more than half a century and in honor of that, Pyrex parent World Kitchen and the Pyrex brand team recently hosted a celebration for employees, retirees and residents. Charleroi residents were treated to a pancake breakfast, live entertainment, interactive photo booth, product giveaways and a look at the World’s Largest Measuring Cup.
Carl Warschausky, president and CEO of World Kitchen, who helped serve the pancakes, said, “We consider the Charleroi employees the heart and soul of the Pyrex brand. Their hard work and dedication to the brand does not go unnoticed. Now is a time to celebrate and give thanks to the employees who truly exemplify our brand and serve as the ultimate testament to who we are.”
“World Kitchen has been working hard to make this celebration larger than life, literally. It only made sense to bring the kick-off celebration to Charleroi, the town that has been the home of Pyrex glassware for more than 50 years. A town that, though small in number, is mighty and has brought quality products into the homes and kitchens of millions of Americans,” said Warschausky.
