Blenko VP Speaks About The Future

Last evening we ask Katie Garrison, Blenko Glass Company's Vice President to address the blog email questions. This was her response to your questions: "
The support of the Blenko community through purchases allowed us to partially restart production.

We have not had any viable investors approach us and it has been up in the air as to what it would take for an investor to actually buy the company due to the inability to negotiate some of our debts.

Our future is still unknown. We do not know how long we will be on partial production or if we will ever be able to start up fully again. Uncertain is a good word to describe our future.

Beyond that we really appreciate the support of the community. "

Did this answer all your questions? I hope so. HJH
