“We are pleased to be part of the Greenville County business community, and our expanding presence in Piedmont offers more space and positions us near our southeastern U.S. customers,” stated Bill Ash, president of ORBIS Corporation. “We strategically selected this region to provide high service levels to customers and to attract local talent.”
With more than 170 years of material handling and packaging expertise, ORBIS helps world-class customers move their product faster, safer, and more cost-effectively with reusable totes, pallets, containers, dunnage, and racks. Using a proprietary approach, ORBIS employees analyze their customers’ systems, design a solution, and execute a reusable packaging program for longer-term cost savings and sustainability.
At its new and expansive location, located in Piedmont, S.C., ORBIS manufactures metal racks that are primarily used to transport large parts and components in automotive and heavy industrial supply chain applications. The racks are custom designed to meet the unique needs of each ORBIS customer.
