OCONOMOWOC, Wis. – ORBIS Corporation, an international leader in reusable packaging, recently hosted the Osage City Chamber of Commerce for a facility tour and ribbon cutting event to celebrate the successful launch of new injection molding presses. The local business leaders were able to see the results of the investment, which improves the flexibility and overall output at this location.
This plant produces a variety of reusable and recyclable trays, baskets and totes for use in the food, beverage and consumer packaged goods industries. These products move goods throughout the supply chain to reduce damage, to better utilize truckloads and to reduce waste. This continues to support the modernization initiative started in 2017 with press replacements. In 2018, the facility continued the plan by significantly upgrading its plastic recycling systems. The upgrade allows for up to 40% of the plant materials to be supplied with recycled products that have reached the end of their service life. Since the expansion, ORBIS has added 25% more employees.
This plant employs about 100 people, is an active member in the community and supports local libraries and high schools with scholarship and robotic team funding. With the recent upgrades, the Osage City facility is well-positioned to provide ORBIS customers with high quality trays, totes and containers while being a key contributor to the local economy.
