The big growth of a Bend company prompts them to move into the Old Mill District for its corporate headquarters. Silipint sells the world's only silicone pint glass. It's unbreakable and dishwasher and microwave safe. President Robert Berman says the new company has found a niche: “It's the world's first and only silicone pint glass.  Its primary purpose is it’s made out of 100 percent silicone, FDA approved.  The cup is virtually indestructible. So it's built primary to prevent the problem of broken glass.” Silipint has hired 15 workers, mainly sales people and plans to hire another 5 to 10 over the next month and a half.
