Wisconsin-based Orbis Corp. has begun construction on a North American manufacturing plant in Silao, located in the Mexican state of Guanajuato; Silao is 250 miles northwest of Mexico City. Construction of the facility is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The 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, the company says.

“We are very pleased to make this investment in the future of Orbis Corp. in Mexico,” said Bill Ash, company president. “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 Corp. is a leader in reusable packaging and is a subsidiary of Menasha Corp. which was founded in 1849. The company has approximately 40 sales, service and manufacturing locations in North America, Europe and Asia and 1,600 employees worldwide.
