ORBIS Reusable Packaging Management, a global supply chain company, will increase its Forsyth County presence with an expansion at Union Cross Business Park. ORBIS currently has operations in the Triad in both Winston-Salem and Greensboro.
The company will occupy about 65,000 square feet of space in the Union Cross Business Park and have 25 employees on site. The site will be used for the management, cleaning, repair, and replenishment of reusable plastic pallets, layer pads, and top frames. The company offers supply chain solutions to beverage manufacturers, providing a reusable and sustainable method to transport beverage cans.
“We are excited for the expanded space and more efficient layout for operating, shipping and receiving,” said Bart Lantz, Vice-President of ORBIS RPM Operations and Administration. “Additionally, the improved facility capabilities for automated processing will bring value to our associates and ultimately our customers.”
“Supply chain for food and beverage companies has elevated to an even more crucial component of operations over the past few months,” said Greater Winston-Salem, Inc. President and CEO Mark Owens. “Accessibility is critical for our continued growth in this sector, and we are thrilled with Orbis’ decision to expand here.”
Taylor Williams of Williams Development Group says that ORBIS’s expansion highlights the benefits that the Triad region offers in the supply chain and light manufacturing sectors.
“We are pleased that a company with a global footprint finds value and chooses to expand in Forsyth County. We are excited to assist in ORBIS’s local expansion efforts and look forward to future growth opportunities with this building,” says Williams.
