Interroll, a worldwide provider of key products and solutions for internal logistics, is opening its new, 100,000-square-foot regional center of excellence in Hiram Sunday, marking a new era in logistics automation and support.

The state-of-the-art facility on Bill Carruth Parkway will manufacture dynamic storage, modules and subsystems that will drive operations in distribution facilities throughout the Americas. Initially, the facility will employ 40 people with the total approaching 100 employees.

The company’s new facility will serve customers, including Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, Procter and Gamble, Inc; UPS and Frito-Lay, with market-focused product lines and engineering support. With direct access to Atlanta’s international airport and Savannah seaports, the center is positioned to respond to customers and meet just-in-time inventory requirements.

“Interroll is extremely proud of its new manufacturing and showroom facility, which will make Interroll even faster and more flexible in serving customers throughout North and South America,” said Tim McGill, president of North and South American operations of the company.

“The investment reinforces our commitment to this key strategic market and will enhance overall customer satisfaction for all of our key customer groups,” he said.

Interroll started its activities in the U.S. market in Port Washington, N.Y., in 1968. In 1990 the company shifted its production facility for rollers, RollerDrives and drum motors to Wilmington, N.C.

Interroll also serves the North American market with its subsidiaries in Canada and is active in the South American market with its subsidiary in São Paulo, Brazil. In June 2013, Interroll acquired Portec Inc., a leading provider of belt curves in Cañon City, Colo., enhancing Interroll’s global product range and opening up new application fields for its customers worldwide.

“Interroll’s commitment to bring its first U.S. manufacturing presence to metro Atlanta and Paulding County is a significant recognition of Atlanta’s worldwide logistics ranking and our superior supply chain infrastructure,” said Matthew Patterson, director of supply chain and advanced manufacturing at the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce.
