Tevilas Kelim for Utensils Made by Irreligious Jews

The grape juice bottles with a triangle on them are manufactured in Israel. However the company that manufactures them desecrates Shabos – does this obligate a person to toivel them even though the company is Jewish.
If I am required to toivel them – what is the din if I already bottled 160 shekels worth of pure olive oil in them.


If the bottles were produced by Jews, there is no need to toivel them, even if the Jews in question desecrate Shabbos.
