Material handling products manufacturer Interroll has expanded capacity in Georgia, investing $11 million in a second plant on its campus in Hiram in Paulding County.
The new building provides assembly lines for Interroll’s Modular Conveyor Platform and all sorters.
The Sant’Antonino, Switzerland-based Interroll Group company is seeing high activity and introducing new products to markets as increased automation for warehouses, growing reliance on e-commerce and high demand from courier, express and parcel business drive demand.
The new building provides 100,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing space, 25,000 square feet of offices, training facilities and an employee gym, according to an announcement. The facility has begun operations, a spokeswoman said.
“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,” Richard Keely, executive vice president of the Americas region and member of the group management, said in an announcement. “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.”
With more overall space at Interroll Atlanta, showroom and training facilities were added to its first plant, according to the announcement.
“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,” Keely said.
