Interroll announces the creation of extra capacities in the U.S., with an additional plant next to the existing one to be built in Hiram, near Atlanta, Georgia. The company is investing a total of approximately $11 million in this extension, and completion of the second factory is expected by the end of 2019.
At Interroll, the Americas region continues to see a high level of project activities, with 2018 sales resulting in double-digit growth. At the same time, the company is introducing innovative solutions at a fast pace to meet the market’s ever-evolving demands. Important business trends such as increased automation for warehouses and airports as well as the rise of e-commerce continue to support this positive outlook.
"We continue to see high demand for Interroll solutions in the Americas,” says Richard Keely, executive vice president of the Americas region. “Because of this, we are preparing ourselves by raising capacities in order to ensure fast delivery times for our customers and end users in the years to come."
The project adds 121,500 square feet of available floor space of which 15,000 square feet will be used as office space.
“Our extended capacities will allow us to further develop our lean and agile production and increase the level of automation in our factories,” says Keely.
