ATLANTA — Interroll has begun operations at its second plant on the company campus in Hiram, GA. The new building provides 100,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing area, as well as 25,000 square feet of offices, plus a kaizen room. This $11 million dollar investment gives Interroll a substantial increase in capacity for the region.
"We have raised capacities in order to ensure low lead times for our customers and end users in the North American market in the years to come," says Richard Keely, executive vice president of the Americas region and member of the Group Management. "We continue to see high demand for Interroll solutions in the areas of conveyors and sorters. Therefore, we have increased our fabrication footprint while creating several new lean agile assembly cells."
The new building provides assembly lines for the Modular Conveyor Platform, as well as for all sorters, including the new high-performance crossbelt sorter and sorter chutes. In the near future, it will also house a production line for Modular Pallet Conveyor Platforms
"Over the last few months, capacity is more and more critical as supply chains are challenged with lockdowns and other restrictions. Through this challenging period, we have continued to see new opportunities because of our commitment to short delivery times," says Keely. "Our team is fully committed to keeping this climate of excellence and looks forward to convincing more customers with our delivery performance in the future."
