Blenko Glass Co. is rebounding after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2011.
Media outlets report the Milton glassmaker has benefited from a recent drop in natural gas prices and a surge in sales.
Trippe says the company is making a strong effort to move forward.
Blenko has been making hand-blown products since 1893, including glass for the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.
The company held its fifth annual Festival of Glass during the weekend. The festival included glass-making workshops and tours of the factory. It drew Blenko fans from Ohio, Texas, California, Missouri and other states.
