The Eatonton-Putnam Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony with Orchard Brands Co. Sept. 30 to celebrate the opening of the new distribution center.

Orchard Brands, based out of Beverly, Mass., is a company that owns many apparel catalogers which serve a mature demographic. Haband Co. is one of these titles, which planted its distribution roots in Eatonton more than 21 years ago. The second distribution center was opened as a result of Orchard Brands needing a fulfillment center to handle a product line not conducive for conveyor systems. Orchard Brands renovated part of the old Enterprise Aluminum plant into a cost efficient fulfillment center that went live shipping customer’s orders Monday, Sept. 14. After adding significant mechanical and system improvements in the building, the facility opened with 60 brand new jobs. The center will continue to hire about 30 more people in anticipation of the holiday season.

The new distribution center is located at 119 S. Forrest St., Eatonton.

For more information on the distribution center or hiring, contact Human Resources Manager Charity Burnette at (706) 485-4568.
