Globalization


Orchid's primary focus is supporting the North American market. Orchid’s products are typically steel intensive so they are heavy from a transportation perspective. To cover the North American market cost effectively, including many customers in Mexico, Orchid has logistic channels that include both rail and truck transportation.


In order to expand its reach around the world and provide its customers with a global manufacturing footprint, as well as service international customers that have setup locations in North America, Orchid has formed a Global Strategic Alliance with Hidria, a large European based manufacturer with a strong global footprint. Hidria is also a global leader in electrical steel laminations and motor/generator cores and has a product offering and capabilities that are very similar to Orchid, plus very extensive engineering and research capabilities. Hidria does not have a manufacturing location in North America, and Orchid does not have other locations globally, so a Strategic Alliance and Cooperation between Orchid and Hidria makes a perfect combination for customers seeking suppliers with a global footprint. Visit Hidria to learn more about what they do.
