Orora Limited has today announced the official opening of its purpose-built facility at Bundaberg, in partnership with AHG Refrigerated Logistics.
The opening was marked by the unveiling of a plaque by Orora Managing Director and CEO, Mr Nigel Garrard and AHG CEO of Logistics, Mr Stephen Cleary, at an event attended by V8 Supercar champion, Scott McLaughlin, customers and local dignitaries.
Orora revealed that the new 4200 square metre corrugated packaging, cold storage and transport facility will provide significant long-term benefits to the company’s fruit and produce corrugated customer base in Bundaberg. The additional refrigerated transport resources provided by AHG means Orora can provide an end-to-end packaging solution for its customers, bringing their produce from farm to market in pristine condition.
“We see this investment, in Queensland’s horticultural rich heartland, as a key strategic asset for Orora that provides our customers with an integrated supply chain solution for their produce,” said Nigel Garrard, Managing Director and CEO.
“In addition, the new facility will provide significant job opportunities particularly during peak season. Bundaberg is a diverse and growing region, the food bowl for Northern Australia. The new facility, along with Orora and AHG’s strategic partnership, will enhance the ability to tailor solutions for growers that have specific supply chain requirements,” he added.
