Orbus Incorporated was established in April 2001 in a modest facility on South Michigan Avenue. It launched with a staff of three and two primary products. By the spring of 2002 the line expanded to 22 products with a growing need for graphic services. As a result, Orbus merged with Paul Person Graphics, a Chicago based tradeshow inkjet print house. The new and improved business relocated into a facility on the northwest side of Chicago.
By January of 2003, the Orbus graphics department was fully established and providing graphic services that coordinated with a range of over fifty various display products. Orbus later introduced an unbranded catalog with the first edition of The Exhibitors Handbook. With over one hundred products and trade customers in almost every major US city, Orbus had established a solid reputation and foundation. In 2005, with over sixty employees and a continually increasing product range, Orbus made plans for relocation.
March 2006 marked an agreement for a newly constructed facility in Bolingbrook, Illinois. By summer Orbus had been recognized as one of Americas top five market leaders by several trade publications and leading tradeshow authorities. SignPro Systems was launched in November 2007 as Orbus' first step into the modular signage industry. In 2009, Origin was launched as a provider of full custom solutions. Today with this expansion, Orbus has grown to employ over 175 team members and its product line includes over 300 products.
