Bullseye Glass Answers Lawsuit with Evidence of 40 Year Commitment to the Health of the Environment, Safety of Its Employees and The Welfare of Its Neighbors

 

FOR RELEASE September 05, 2017 - In an extensive response backed up by sworn affidavits from Bullseye’s leadership team, the Portland Company that has gained a reputation as one of the most innovative colored art glass manufacturers in the world, forcefully denied charges that the company leaders knew they were emitting dangerous metals that were affecting the neighborhood and that they failed to take reasonable steps to control emissions.

In simple terms, Bullseye refutes that it intentionally emitted metals with knowledge that it would cause harm. The Bullseye argument is based on several key points: [1] Bullseye Glass Co.’s extensive experience creating colored glass in a melting process that did not produce dangerous or harmful metal emissions; [2] Oregon’s environmental agency [DEQ] permission of Bullseye’s emissions and emission control processes; [3] Bullseye’s close and transparent work with DEQ and Workplace Health Authorities to respond to emission issues with swift and expensive protection devices that built the Bullseye Glass Co. into an exceptionally clean manufacturing facility and safe workplace.
