PPAF and Tervis are excited to announce a plant tour to be hosted at the Tervis headquarters in Venice, FL. The Tervis team will be providing lunch and a short presentation about the story of Tervis. Attendees will then have the opportunity to tour the plant.
In 1946, engineers Frank Cotter and G. Howlett Davis, in Detroit, Michigan, harnessed the natural insulating powers of air and created a permanently sealed, double-wall tumbler as a way to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold.
The tall cylindrical tumblers soon captured the interest of an adventurous, sun-loving and entrepreneurial family who purchased the product rights to Tervis in the 1960s, and moved the company to Florida to embrace the spirit of the sunshine life and all the outdoor activities the south has to offer. In the following years, Tervis improved and expanded upon the original design and introduced decorations, emblems and colors to create drinkware as unique as their consumers.
Tervis currently offers tumblers in numerous sizes, water bottles, sippy cups and wine glasses, 1000s of original and licensed designs and emblems and a full complement of accessories. The third generation family-owned-and-operated business, now employs more than 900 people and is celebrating 70 years of success.
