Otto Environmental Systems North America, Inc. (OESNA) will invest $7 million USD expand its Charlotte, North Carolina manufacturing plant, adding equipment and creating 32 new jobs.

OESNA traces its roots back to 1934, when the original company was founded in Kreuztal, Germany. It is a subsidiary of Otto Industries North America, Inc. and is based in Charlotte. OESNA manufactures plastic waste containers for commercial and residential use. The company offers residential refuse and recycling carts, commercial refuse and recycling containers, litter respectable, recycling bins, residential refuse lifting systems and document security containers.

“Otto evaluated expanding other facilities, but after considering all options, North Carolina came out on top,” said Robert Engle, CEO of Otto Environmental Systems North America, Inc. “North Carolina is a business-friendly state, and the secretary of commerce does a wonderful job working with companies.”

“My administration is working to ensure manufacturing continues to be a growth engine for North Carolina,” said Governor Pat McCrory. “Partnering with companies like Otto Environmental Systems will help us increase the number of ‘Made in North Carolina’ labels around the country and globe.”

The project was made possible in part by a performance based grant from the One North Carolina Fund of up to $ 48,000. The One North Carolina Fund helps recruit and expand quality jobs in high value-added, knowledge-driven industries. It also provides financial assistance to those businesses or industries deemed vital to a healthy economy that are making significant efforts to expand in North Carolina.
