One year on - A trip down expansion avenue

A year ago, Oreco Group began a massive expansion to upgrade their manufacturing facilities in Childers, QLD to induct more than 100 new workers to join the Oreco family. This was needed to ensure demand needs are continuously met while the company continues to expand. At this time, Oreco Group’s manufacturing site in Childers was at full capacity, having grown more than 400% in the past decade.

Oreco Group was in the process of laying thousands of square metres of concrete and constructing their main office building situated at the new entrance. This would allow more space for additional employees to join the Oreco family in logistics, administration, marketing, management and production positions.

The most impactful development at Oreco Group within’ the last year is how the production quality, efficiency and consistency has improved. A year ago, Oreco Group only produced potting mix & sugar cane mulch here in Childers. Using only 1 production line with 3 baling machines and 1 T2 – Oreco was producing record numbers amid the world pandemic and needed to expand the Childers site to cater for additional production requirements and facilitate production for a range of new animal care products.

Since the start of 2020, Oreco Group has launched brand new Animal Feed & Animal Bedding products – Allowing for the expansion into the animal care industry. Our mission is to source eco-friendly, sustainable raw materials in Australia without compromising the quality of our products; Oreco
