Effective February 1, 2013, Libbey Inc. will become the exclusive distributor of Spiegelau and Nachtmann glassware and serveware products to the United States foodservice industry, the company announced today. Through this exclusive agreement, Libbey Inc. will offer new premium brand glassware choices for U.S. foodservice customers.

Spiegelau is known for its fine stemware and other premium drinkware assortments. Nachtmann offers a variety of upscale serveware, decorative products, stemware and drinkware for finer dining establishments.

"We are so pleased that Spiegelau and Nachtmann will be joining the Libbey family. This agreement directly supports our strategic goal to further grow our business in the foodservice industry," said Stephanie Streeter, CEO Libbey Inc. "These new choices for stemware and serveware certainly extend our high-quality premium offerings. We can now provide our foodservice customers with the broadest tabletop choices available in the U.S."

Richard Voit, managing director, Spiegelau and Nachtmann, said, "Three great brands are joining together to fully serve the U.S. foodservice industry. We were attracted to Libbey because they possess many of the same attributes as Spiegelau and Nachtmann including a strong heritage and a reputation for high-quality products. That, combined with a high-performing sales team and effective distribution network, makes this agreement a mutually beneficial arrangement."
