Orbus Visual Communications® announced the relocation and grand opening of a new manufacturing facility for its SEG Systems® and Fabric Images® brands in Huntersville, N.C.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on April 17, 2024, at 1:30 p.m. to celebrate Orbus Visual Communications relocation from Woodridge, Ill.

The relocation and expansion are a $25 million investment and will create 100 new jobs, in addition to the 86 jobs moving from Charlotte. The new facility is approximately 225,000 square feet (50% larger than the previous space) 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 town of Huntersville is appreciative of SEG Systems’ and Fabric Images’ choice to expand and relocate,” says Christy Clark, mayor of Huntersville. “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,” says 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,” says 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,” says Gary Keefer, CEO of Orbus Visual Communications. “This relocation and expansion propel us forward and reinforces our commitment to excellence in the Retail and Interiors markets.”
