Reusable packaging producer Orbis Corporation has opened its new production plant in Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Spread over an area of around 265,000ft², the plant is said to be the company’s first facility to offer injection and structural foam molding, as well as dunnage fabrication, all under one roof.

Employing 140 people, the plant will also produce plastic containers, pallets, BulkPak containers and ORBIShield dunnage product line offerings.

Orbis has also introduced a new range of fabric dunnage, which claims to offer a protective solution to the automotive supply chain.

"The new facility features best-in-class design for efficient product flow, productivity and environmental sustainability."
