Otto Moves Forward After Refinance Completion
Charlotte, N.C., June 21, 2016 ̶ Otto is proud to report our refinancing effort has been completed. Otto
spent the last eighteen very difficult months going through an operational turn-around. Our plants needed
extensive refurbishment in order to handle increased sales volumes. During this period Otto invested over
eighteen million dollars into our infrastructure. To assist our continued growth, Otto elected to raise outside
capital. We considered several options including investments from strategic investors and PE firms to
finance our balance sheet. After a long review of the various options, we are proud to report our current
Canadian lender has agreed to expand our existing credit facility. The restructuring will result in a stronger
balance sheet and liquidity for our company.
Looking forward with new molds and machines in place, Otto is poised to increase production by 20
percent. Future investment is geared towards operational systems that increase production efficiencies,
cloud-based technologies that improve field-to-desktop fleet monitoring within Otto’s logistics portal, and
R&D activities to expand on existing product lines, RFID projects, and market segments.
Through our people, Otto is committed to nurturing its long-standing relationships as well as cultivating
new relationships during its journey forward. The investment in infrastructure is part of Otto’s promise to
serve customers, suppliers and overall network with additional capacity, shorter lead times, improved
customer service, and better overall communication. Otto will continue to provide superior products and
services to the waste industry well into the future.
