What's the history of Tervis?

Print

Let’s take a little trip back in time. It’s 1946. Detroit. Engineers Frank Cotter and G. Howlett Davis hit on something big: they harness the natural insulating powers of air to create a permanently sealed, double-walled tumbler. Finally, a way to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. Combining the last three letters of each of their last names, Cotter and Davis dubbed their new cup brand “Tervis." In the years to follow, they worked hard to refine and improve their designs. Today, Tervis offers six tumbler sizes, plus hundreds of customizable designs, emblems and accessory combinations. The Donelly family purchased the Tervis product rights in the 1950s and incorporated the Tervis Tumbler Company in 1967.
