ORBIS Announces ESD Certification
OCONOMOWOC, Wis. — July 16, 2019 — ORBIS® Corporation, an international leader in reusable packaging, is pleased to announce that TJ Bahr, project engineer for ORBIS, has received the ESD Association’s certification as a Certified Program Manager. This highly specialized certification is intended for individuals who design, implement, manage and audit ESD control programs.

These discharges can also cause data failures or spark fires or explosions in flammable environments.

This is part of a continuing effort to provide advanced ESD protective solutions for customers. The certification has increased ORBIS’ overall competency level of ESD-safe products and improves buyer-seller communication.
