Orlaco will open its first U.S. facility in Pickens County

International camera company, Orlaco, has announced its first U.S.-based facility will be built in Pickens County.

The manufacturing and warehouse facility is expected to create 65 new jobs.

According to Georgia Economic Development officials the state’s advanced logistics is a key reason for the decision to locate in Georgia.

“Orlaco’s decision to locate its first U.S. facility in Georgia further explains why our state is the No.1 place in the nation to do business,” said Chris Carr, commissioner of GDEcD. “Being an excellent addition to a network of quality heavy equipment providers, Orlaco is taking advantage of our interconnected logistics infrastructure and a superb talent pool. I have no doubt that this fast-growing company will continue to flourish here.”

“We are pleased with this step towards our worldwide expansion,” said Kurt Dekker CBDO of Orlaco. “With the new headquarters in Georgia, we can supply quality products to our existing and new customers faster. This expansion is a logical continuation of the success we already have in the North American market for years.”
