Interroll is building a new factory at Kronau in Germany to meet demand for conveyors and sorters, as well as for additional products.
The company is investing €40 million in the facility which will have a production area of some 15,000 sq m when it is completed in 2020.
Jens Strüwing, executive vice president products and technology, said: “Interroll is taking into account the high growth momentum for conveyors and sorters by choosing to develop a second, significantly bigger factory in Kronau. In this way, we are securing fast delivery times for our customers and end users well into the future.
Emergency measures have been introduced at the Sinsheim site to increase production capacities; these measures will remain in place until the new factory opens in Kronau.
Interroll, which will be exhibiting at IntraLogisteX in February, is also planning to launch a number of products and solutions in the area of conveyors and sorters in the first quarter of 2019.
