In 1968 Potters Industries open a plant in Apex, North Carolina to further expand its presence as a leading producer of engineered glass materials. Potters Industries utilizes recycled glass to remanufacture glass beads that are used in fabricated plastics, automotive body putties and much more. In fact, Potters recycles over 1 BILLION pounds of glass each year. Potters primary focus is that of highway safety. Potters introduced the concept of embedding glass beads into highway safety markings to create reflective lines that drivers could see day or night, rain or shine. The innovative concept has been so well received that Potters Industries has a global demand for its products. They have met that demand by having a physical presence in 25 locations spreading across the United States and Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, France, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Germany Poland and Thailand.
