Early American Pittsburgh, Inc. expanding operations to Mount Pleasant Glass Centre


MOUNT PLEASANT TOWNSHIP, PA -- The Westmoreland County Industrial Development Corporation’s (WCIDC) Board of Directors approved a one-year lease agreement with Early American Pittsburgh, Inc. The lease includes 15,000 square-feet at the Mount Pleasant Glass Centre in Westmoreland County.


Early American Pittsburgh, a family-owned candle manufacturing company, was founded by Elmer and Dorothy Byrnes in 1962. The company manufactures many types of jar, votive, tealites, and pillar candles, as well as other specialty candles for wholesalers throughout the country. Expansion plans call for the company to relocate from their current operations in Allison Park the Mount Pleasant complex, which would enable them to increase their product line and warehousing operations.


Recently awarded a national distributorship for Libbey Glass, east of the Mississippi, the company now carries a wide variety of Libbey products via the web and is an authorized distributor for IGI waxes, Cargill waxes (soy products), Atkins & Pearce wicks, Fil-Tec wicks, Glue Dots International and Anchor Hocking glass.


“We have a workforce of 13 that includes candle masters that have been recognized nationally for their expertise, craftsmanship, and artistry,” said John G. Brynes, president of Early American Pittsburgh.


“Because of the expected growth in sales we anticipate to double or triple our staff within three to five years.”

“We welcome the expansion of Early American Pittsburgh to the Mount Pleasant Glass Centre which will be providing solid jobs to the area and contributing to our local economy,” said county Commissioner Chuck Anderson, who also serves as chairman of the county Industrial Development Corporation. “Westmoreland’s local community eagerly anticipates these new job opportunities.”
