ORR Corporation History

A family-owned company since 1948, the ORR Corporation is proud of where we come from and proud of how far we’ve come. We have a large family of associates—many of whom have been with the company for years—with stories that shape who we are and how we’ve grown over the years.

We Go Way Back!
