Packaging firm Orora and AHG Refrigerated Logistics have opened their purpose-built facility in Bundaberg.
The 4,200m2 facility provides packaging, cool storage and transport services for the two companies, who announced their strategic partnership last year.
Orora MD and CEO Nigel Garrard and AHG CEO of Logistics Stephen Cleary were on hand to open the facility with V8 Supercar champion Scott McLaughlin, on 4 August.
The facility provides long-term benefit to Orora’s fresh produce corrugated packaging customers base in Bundaberg, while the partnership with AHG means Orora can provide its fresh produce customers with end-to-end packaging solutions.
“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 Garrard. “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.”
