Orbus Visual Communications has announced the relocation and grand opening of a new manufacturing facility for SEG Systems and Fabric Images in Huntersville, North Carolina.

Orbus is a producer of visual communications solutions for tradeshows and events, retail environments, and workplace interiors. SEG Systems specializes in the engineering, design, and manufacture of lightboxes, merchandising display systems, and creative solutions to bolster retailers and brands. Fabric Images is a design-focused manufacturer of printed and non-printed tension fabric architecture, acoustical products, and custom design solutions for workplace interiors, hospitality, retail spaces, museums, and events.

According to Orbus, “This event marks a pivotal moment in the history of SEG Systems and Fabric Images, symbolizing growth, innovation, and a commitment to excellence.”

The relocation and expansion are a $25 million investment and will create 100 new jobs, in addition to the 86 jobs moving from Charlotte, North Carolina. The new facility is approximately 225,000 square feet and will incorporate SEG Systems’ and Fabric Images’ entire production capabilities: printing, metal fabrication, fabric architecture manufacturing, woodworking, acoustical felt production, powder coating, and lighting. The brand-new facility is 50% larger than the previous space. The expansion is said to unlock new opportunities for enhanced productivity and innovation.

“The Town of Huntersville is appreciative of SEG Systems’ and Fabric Images’ choice to expand and relocate,” remarked Christy Clark, mayor of Huntersville, North Carolina. “This partnership has led to continued growth with new jobs and investment added to our community.”

“As a Huntersville native, it is beyond exciting to bring SEG Systems to Huntersville,” said Dori Tilson, president of SEG Systems. “The location is perfect for our existing employee base, logistics needs, and for attracting new employees.”

“Fabric Images’ move to North Carolina is a significant expansion of space for fabric architecture and acoustic production,” stated Marco Alvarez, vice president of Fabric Images. “Large-scale projects require extensive square footage, and this investment supports our needs very well.”

“I am proud of Orbus Visual Communications and our success, marked by this relocation and expansion to a new cutting-edge facility,” said Gary Keefer, CEO of Orbus Visual Communications. “This relocation and expansion propels us forward and reinforces our commitment to excellence in the Retail and Interiors markets.”
