St Germain died in 1972 and his son William founded the company with his brother John in 1972.

The Loomises own the remaining 90 percent.
Artesium Glass was founded in 1874, and its products have been used for nearly 100 years in industries ranging from ceramics to plumbing and lighting.
According to the company’s website, the glass business employs more than 8,000 people and employs over 100,000 glassmakers worldwide.
It also sells its products in over 100 countries.
According the company website, Artesians customers include Fortune 500 companies and major universities.
The announcement comes after a $20 billion bid by Artesicles to acquire the company in February.
Arties was founded on the principle that glass should not be wasted.
The founder of Arties, Samuel C St Germains, said in a statement that he “never intended that his company would be used as a factory for glass products that would cause harm to the environment and the environment’s health.”
The company also stated that it was committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and said it would “exercise every possible legal means to protect the environment from future pollution.”
The Artesian, a unit of the St. George-based Artesius Corporation, was founded from the ashes of the Loomish Glass Company in 1899.
It was founded as a branch of the famed Loomiys glass mill, and St Germays sons had worked in the factory.
St Greaves said that the Artesio glass company would remain in its current name.
In recent years, Arties has been embroiled in a legal battle with the United States Environmental Protection Agency over the use of its products.
In a lawsuit filed in 2017, the EPA said the company was polluting water by emitting greenhouse gases and toxic chemicals that could harm human health and the planet.
The agency has also sought to revoke the company’s license to operate.

The AP said the Lomish family bought the company for $1.1 billion in 2013, and the company has been a major investor in the city of St. Paul.
