For over 130 years, Ball® branded glass jars and lids have been manufactured exclusively in the United States.
The production of the first Ball® branded glass jar marks the beginning of a fascinating history. The Ball Brothers Glass Manufacturing Company began manufacturing fruit jars in 1884 in Buffalo, New York. After a destructive fire in the Buffalo plant, however, the five Ball brothers and their families relocated to Muncie, Indiana, where their business has become known worldwide.
