Thompson Enamel has been a manufacturer of vitreous enamel for metal for over 119 years. They are the last remaining enamel manufacturer in the United States. Originally headquartered in Chicago, Thompson began producing glass lined pipes in Cincinnati in the 1960’s and since 1984 all of Thompson’s production has been in Newport, KY, right across the river from us!
