The HLC Family of Companies Introduces New Website


From white tablecloth to café to cafeteria, is a simple showcase of seemingly limitless dinnerware options.

March 4, 2014 —Newell, WV— The HLC Inc. Family of Companies, which includes The Homer Laughlin China Co., RAK Porcelain, and The Hall China Company®, has brought its latest creation to life: a beautiful new website, outlining its nearly countless offerings.

Unique among the world’s producers of tableware for its wealth of available styles, HLC offers an impressive array of selections suited to any commercial and non-commercial eating establishment. From white tablecloth dining rooms to chic or casual bistros seeking to set a more colorful table, HLC is there to answer the call. Only at can dealers and end-users find scores of dinnerware collections — infinitely customizable by pattern or color — from Homer Laughlin; then delight in comparing RAK’s fine ceramics, of which HLC is the sole U.S. distributor; ultimately completing the arrangement with timeless bakeware and accessories from the Hall China Company.

HLC offers such diversity as standard fare. This is because, unlike stocking companies who build catalogs from manufacturers unknown, the HLC Family of Companies is an ensemble of Genuine Manufacturers™. showcases the benefits of working with Genuine Manufacturers, which includes control of processes, customization like no other in the business — think faster, less expensive, and more options — and the ability to effect a cleaner approach to manufacturing, reducing the companies’ environmental footprints.

Gene Williamson, Vice President of Sales for the Foodservice Division of HLC Inc. says, “I feel the new website represents the best of HLC. People only need to hold a piece of HLC dinnerware to recognize it immediately for its quality. No website can adequately represent that, but we are hoping it will inspire many to seek the experience.”
