Company description: Meredith Ransom, marketing manager: “Interroll provides system integrators and OEMs with a wide range of platform-based products and services in these categories: rollers (conveyor rollers), drives (motors and drives for conveyor systems), conveyors and sorters as well as pallet and carton flow (flow storage systems).”

Why did Interroll begin in Wilmington? Ransom: “As part of the global expansion of Swiss-based Interoll, Charles (Chuck) Agnoff started Interroll USA as president and CEO in Long Island, New York. In 1988 he brought Interroll to Wilmington …”

What was behind the decision to bring Interroll to Wilmington? Ransom: “Seeking available labor, affordable land and an enhanced quality of life for his family and employees, Chuck came to eastern North Carolina to find a new and better home for the company he had founded in 1968 … He came across Wilmington and the timing was great. Interstate 40 was being completed, a new airport terminal was under construction, and the city was poised for growth.”
