Libbey Introduces Premium Flatware with Master’s Gauge™ Collection
Tap into the tactile to elevate guests’ experiences
TOLEDO, OHIO, May 19, 2018 – (NYSE American: LBY) Libbey® Foodservice introduces a new standard of style and substance with its finest flatware, Master’s Gauge™. This broad collection combines modern beauty and durability with a striking selection of finishes, textures and unique profiles.
From the brilliant iridescence of Santa Cruz Chroma to the elegant matte black handle of High Rise, Master’s Gauge is designed to amaze. It feels sturdy yet balanced in the hand. Each piece is polished to perfection and every edge features European influences with larger handles and longer tines.
“Creating a one-of-a-kind experience requires close attention to detail and an understanding of the role each piece plays to complete the tabletop,” said Susan J. Dountas, senior director of foodservice marketing for Libbey Inc. “Don’t dismiss the importance of engaging all of the senses, particularly the tactile, to enhance the experience. The weight, feel and design of flatware can be one of your guests' first impressions at your table.”
