CINCINNATI, June 8 /CNW/ - To accommodate growth and better serve its
customers, Pro Mach is relocating manufacturing operations for its Orion
division from Laval, Quebec to expanded state-of-the-art facilities in
Alexandria, Minnesota. In addition to housing manufacturing operations for
Orion, the facilities provide additional manufacturing capacity for Pro Mach's
Brenton Engineering Division already located in Alexandria.
Orion's division headquarters, sales, customer service and distributor
support will continue to operate in Collierville, Tennessee as it has for more
than 15 years. Orion is a leading provider of durable, high quality stretch
wrapping systems and part of Pro Mach's End-of-Line Business Unit, which also
includes Brenton Engineering.
"Our highest priority is continued satisfaction of our customers during
the transition," said Pro Mach Chairman and CEO John W. Paxton, Sr. "Our
Alexandria expansion allows us to accommodate growth in our End-of-Line
business and better serve Brenton and Orion customers with enhanced service
and quality and new integrated solutions. Pro Mach will continue to provide
the same quality products that customers have grown to expect from Orion
throughout its long history."
"Providing integrated packaging solutions and subsystems is an important
part of our End-of-Line product strategy," continued Mr. Paxton. "Co-location
of Brenton and Orion manufacturing and engineering will allow us to implement
that strategy with greater efficiency, focus, and speed."
The expansion in Alexandria includes an additional 85,000 square feet of
space to be shared by Brenton and Orion. Pro Mach broke ground in March and
expects the facility to be completed by early Fall with full operating
capacity by the end of this year.
