About Waterford Wedgwood USA, Inc.
Waterford Wedgewood was the US unit of the Irish parent company, Waterford Wedgwood PLC, which had over 250 years of history. Waterford Crystal and Wedgwood merged in 1987 to form Waterford Wedgwood. The company designed, manufactured, and marketed crystal, ceramics (including china and fine porcelain), and cookware. High manufacturing costs, declining demand for crystal and ceramic goods, and a weak dollar were said to be a few of the reasons for the company’s filing for bankruptcy.
Waterford Wedgwood also operated as FCI Properties, Inc., Kilbarry, Inc., Royal Doulton USA, Inc., Waterford Crystal, Inc., and Waterford Wedgwood, Inc.
The former headquarters of Waterford Wedgwood was located in Wall, NJ.
