ORBIS Corporation has announced that it has begun construction on a North American manufacturing plant in Silao, located in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. Official construction begins today, with plans to complete the facility by the end of the year. Silao is 390 km/250 miles northwest of Mexico City. ORBIS is North America’s leader in reusable packaging and is a subsidiary of Menasha Corporation, which was founded in 1849.

This expansion in Mexico enables ORBIS to be more responsive with customers in this geographic area, with local manufacturing, expertise, resources and capabilities, while improving its service reach throughout Latin America.

According to Bill Ash, president, ORBIS Corporation, “We are very pleased to make this investment in the future of ORBIS Corporation in Mexico. This will allow us to better provide our customers in this region with dedicated, local support. This move into Mexico will strengthen ORBIS’ value to customers, with local manufacturing capabilities and support to meet their specific needs.”

ORBIS has approximately 40 sales, service and manufacturing locations in North American, Europe and Asia and 1,600 employees worldwide.
