Owens-Illinois, Inc. Announces Two Nominations for Board of Directors

Perrysburg, Ohio (April 2, 2015) - Owens-Illinois, Inc. (NYSE: OI) announced
today that Gordon Hardie and Alan Murray will stand as nominees for election
to the company's Board of Directors at the 2015 annual meeting of
stockholders on May 12. Current Board of Directors members Helge Wehmeier,
who has reached the mandatory retirement age for board members, and Jay
Geldmacher, whose significant additional professional responsibilities
created scheduling conflicts, will not be standing for re-election. All of
the other current directors will stand for re-election.

Gordon Hardie is managing director, Bunge Food&Ingredients, an $11 billion
food business within Bunge Ltd., a global agrifoods business, with revenues
of $61 billion. He is responsible for the strategic development and global
performance of the Food&Ingredients business. Prior to joining Bunge, Hardie
was managing director at Morningside Partners, an M&A advisory firm he
established in 2009. Between 2003 and 2009 Hardie progressed from marketing
and innovation director at Goodman Fielder Ltd. to managing director of
Goodman Fielder Bakeries. He has also held executive positions with Southcorp
Wines, Foster's Group and Pernod Ricard.

Alan Murray was chief executive officer of Hanson Plc, a $7.5 billion global
building materials company with a strong presence in North America, Europe
and Asia for five years prior to Hanson's acquisition by Heidelberg Cement AG
in 2007. While serving as Hanson CEO and in various other financial
leadership roles, he restructured, rebranded and increased profitability, and
managed many acquisitions. Heidelberg Cement is a Germany-based building
materials manufacturer with revenues of $13.3 billion. He served as a member
of the Managing Board for North America with Heidelberg Cement following the
acquisition until the end of 2008. He currently serves on the public board of
Heidelberg Cement. He also serves on the board of Wolseley Plc, a $19.1
billion distributor of plumbing and heating products in North America and
Europe.
"'We thank Helge and Jay for their wise counsel, support and service to our
Board," said Al Stroucken, chairman and CEO. "We greatly appreciate their
many years of leadership and the time and effort they invested in O-I. We
look forward to welcoming Gordon and Alan, who bring highly relevant business
and industry experience, as well as wide-ranging international perspectives."

If elected, Hardie and Murray will become O-I's eleventh and twelfth Board
members. All O-I directors are elected annually.
