Interroll opens state-of-the-art plant in Thailand
The construction of the new 4,800-square-meter plant is an important part of Interroll's consistent globalization strategy.
Interroll (Thailand) Co., Ltd. has moved to a new, state-of-the-art plant in Phantong, Chonburi, Thailand, in order to seize growth opportunities in Southeast Asia.
The construction of the new 4,800-square-meter plant is an important part of Interroll's consistent globalization strategy. Growth markets in Southeast Asia—especially Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam and Myanmar—show a good demand for Interroll products, with significant potential for the long-term future. Moreover, an increase in the base of installed material handling systems in the region provides additional opportunities for services in the region.
“We are running a state-of-the-art location with improved capacities here,” says Grisorn Nakapong, managing director. “The locally manufactured products are rollers, RollerDrive, pallet flow and drum motors. Our customers can also count on upgraded drum motor services, which we provide at this location.”
By the end of 2019, Interroll Thailand will add a production line for the modular conveyor platform (MCP). Moreover, the container loading area supports big orders of pallet flow for markets in Southeast Asia. The facility also provides an in-house canteen for employees as well as multi-purpose areas for sports and team building activities. Modern office concepts facilitate communication among employees and within project teams.
“By introducing product lines with one piece flow and a high degree of automation, we have further raised our productivity significantly,” says Jens Strüwing, executive vice president products and technology. “The new plant enables us to shorten delivery times for our customers in the region by 30-50% and to produce a much larger range of our solutions in proximity to our Southeast Asian target markets.”
