For 23 years I worked for and represented Corning Glass Works, the finest ceramics company in the world, the makers of Corning Ware cookware, Pyrex bakeware and Corelle dinnerware. It was during these years that I was blessed with working with so many wonderful people who helped to shape and mold my love for the glass ceramics business. In October of 2004, three years after my tenure with Corning ended I received an unsolicited e-mail from Taiwan asking me if I would be interested in a new high temperature ceramic material that could go on top of the stove and under the broiler, a product that would surpass the cooking performance and benefits of the original Corning Ware. I say the original Corning Ware because the Corning Ware manufacturing facility in Martinsburg, West Virginia was closed and dismantled in 2002. Corning Ware is still being marketed today by World Kitchen but the product is now being made of stoneware and not the original patented Pyro-Ceram material that made Corning Ware so recognizable and famous. That single e-mail became the catalyst for what would end up being three additional years of research, testing and product development. In February of 2007 Ceramcor, LLC was officially established in Toms River, New Jersey.
