Interroll Centers of Excellence

The need to implement customer requirements into products with maximum added value has resulted at Interroll in a global network of Centers of Excellence.

Each Center of Excellence concentrates on a specific product area and has worldwide responsibility for product management, R&D, production, strategic procurement and logistics as well as providing technical support for local production, assembly and service companies. With these they form a global network for the delivery of precisely pre-assembled, ready-to-install units according to deadline.

The complete range of product processes are continuously optimized according to Kaizen principles. The ISO-certified centers place their trust in sustainability and have a wide range of application expertise as well as professional test centers for testing products.

The Interroll Production System (IPS)

In 2006 we decided to apply the principles of the Toyota Production System.

The Interroll Production System (IPS) was developed to ensure the high availability of our products at the highest quality and with a very good price-performance ratio. Today, it has become one of our unique selling points.

We are concentrating our resources on developing application-oriented product platforms. The modular basis allows us to focus on continuous development of new products. We strive for a rapid introduction to the market.
