Pro Mach relocating Quebec manufacturing operations to state-of-the-art facilities in Minnesota
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.
