Wilmington, N.C., January 10, 2005. Interroll Corporation announced the availability of its products in both metric and imperial measurements, the next step in its continuing commitment to provide its global customers with the products and services that make doing business more efficient and more cost-effective. The move, which allows customers to replace metric-sized rollers in European-made machines installed in the United States, results from Interroll’s growth and evolution into the only truly global conveyor component company. “The best way we can serve a global customer base is to be truly global ourselves,” said Kim Byriel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, at Interroll. “Our customers depend on our drives and rollers to keep their lines moving. They can’t wait six weeks for a replacement roller to arrive from Europe. Offering both metric and imperial measurements complements the other capabilities we offer our customers—local sources of supply, the ability to work with any program size, no matter how big or small, and our engineering expertise.” Interroll’s manufacturing capabilities span three continents, with facilities in the United States, Europe and China. The supplier is able to manufacture and ship anywhere in the world, while serving customers on a local level, with shorter lead times due to both convenient locations and now the ability to offer metric and imperial measurements.This is especially convenient for customers that take advantage of Interroll’s wide breadth of standard product, according to Byriel, but it also benefits customers that have special needs. “Our engineering expertise is available to customers globally. We have experts on the ground that can make recommendations and create solutions that meet their needs. We meet the needs of a global marketplace on a local level,” he said.For more information about Interroll, call 1-800-830-9680, or fax 800-830-9679 or visit of InterrollInterroll is one of the world's leading suppliers of components as well as subsystems and modules for unit load handling, conveyor technology, and automation.
