Swiss conveyor roller specialist Interroll has boosted capacity in the USA. An additional plant next to the existing one will be built in Hiram near Atlanta, Georgia. The company is investing a total of around US $11 million in this extension, and completion of the second factory is expected by the end of 2019.
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.
The project adds 121,500 square feet (approximately 11,300 square metres) of available floor space of which 15,000 square feet (approximately 1,400 square meters) will be used as office space.
