Oren International unveils new rooftop solar system at Pensacola facility | New Business – Pensacola News Journal

Oren International unveiled the company's 524-kilowatt rooftop solar system at a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday, June 2, 2021, at its Pensacola location.

Oren International started as an entrepreneurial venture more than 25 years ago in Pensacola native Alan NeSmith’s house.

Now the company is a leader in the custom packaging industry, providing solutions for restaurants, retailers, medical and industrial partners alike. International and national brands such as Disney, Macy’s and Johnson & Johnson have all turned to Oren International for their custom paper needs.

But as the demand for paper increases, so does the output of energy and carbon emissions. Oren International and the concept of paper packaging are far from new, but to move forward in an ever-changing world, it became evident that innovation was needed.

Oren International unveiled the company's 524-kilowatt rooftop solar system at a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday, June 2, 2021, at its Pensacola location.

As a result, Oren International recently set forth on a journey to become a more sustainable operation, looking into implementing clean energy solutions as a way to increase efficiency and decrease its carbon footprint.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday lifted the curtain on the company’s 524-kilowatt rooftop solar system, with Pensacola District 7 Councilman Delarian Wiggins and Pensacola Mayor Grover Robinson in attendance.
