Orbis Corporation, a manufacturer of sustainable reusable plastic packaging, has named its Rexdale, Ontario facility as its plant of the year.

The Rexdale plant, manufacturing home of the company’s Orbis Green Bin for organic waste collection and a wide variety of other reusable products, was selected because of “significant improvements in on-time delivery to its customers, employee retention, increased profitability, environmental upgrades that reduced overall water usage and a very strong employee safety score, while increasing its annual shipments by nearly 20 per cent,” according to an Orbis news release.

Steve Smith, plant manager was presented the award by Orbis president Bill Ash, with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, and Ward 1 Councilor, Vincent Crisanti also in attendance.

“We were very pleased to present this award to the Rexdale team,” said Orbis vice president of operation Pat Feeney. “Over the past year, this plant has excelled in several key areas and made significant process improvements to help meet our customers’ needs faster and more efficiently.”

Headquartered in Oconomowoc, Wis., Orbis operates 10 North American manufacturing facilities.
