Pressure Mounts (2016)


Shenango China Company — New Castle, Pennsylvania

In January 1968 Shenango China was sold to the International Pipe & Ceramics Corporation (INTERPACE) of Parsippany, New Jersey. INTERPACE continued to operate the company despite the declining economy of the early 1970’s. Castleton China was steadily reduced and then closed down for good in 1974. The employees, faced with layoffs and reduced hours, began to lose confidence in their management. A series of strikes between 1974 and 1977 worsened the situation. After the last strike, which began in late February 1977 and lasted seventy-seven days, INTERPACE decided to sell the company.
