Interroll nuova fabbrica Cina

Interroll will close its existing Suzhou factory in 2022 and open a new manufacturing location within the Suzhou area, involving an investment of CNY 181 million (CHF 25 million).

The new setup will extend Interroll’s production capacity and strengthen its readiness for future growth in the Asia Pacific region. Interroll is taking the next steps in the Asia Pacific region growth markets there. Especially in China, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region, Korea, and Australia show a good demand for Interroll products and provide significant potential for growth in the long term.

Moreover, an increase in the base of installed material handling systems at customers is expected to provide additional service opportunities within the region. In 2019, about half of the output of Interroll Suzhou was delivered to destinations outside of the People’s Republic of China, with large-scale
projects for the Korean e-commerce sector, as an example. Production at the new factory is scheduled to start in early 2022.

The new state-of-the-art location with improved capacities and new production processes , leveraging automation and digitalization, will be fully owned by Interroll and is located in the Suzhou
Industrial Park (SIP) development zone, around 12 km southwest of the existing location. With about 22,000 square meters of floor space, the available capacity will be doubled.

The concept for the new factory includes a training center as well as showrooms and testing facilities. Production processes will cover the full range of Interroll’s product portfolio. On top of that, the Suzhou facility will also become a Regional Center of Excellence for Technopolymers and Subsystems.
