Interroll Australia has secured a new headquarters in Melbourne’s northern suburb of Epping, as part of the company’s further expansion across Australia and New Zealand.

Interroll Australia, part of the world’s leading provider of material handling solutions, has signed a 10-year lease on the 3,022sqm facility located at 579 Edgars Road.

The company supplies system integrators and equipment manufacturers with a range of platform-based products and services.

Interroll solutions are used in industries such as postal services, e-commerce, airports, food and beverage, fashion and automotive.

“The investment of this new Interroll complex strengthens our future and is in recognition of our partnerships and long-term association with our customers where quality, speed and simplicity are our customer promise,” said Pat Cieri, Interroll Australia Managing Director.

“The investment will enable us to further grow our business through our customers in a sustainable manner.”

CBRE’s Jake George and Corey LeFavi negotiated the deal on behalf of the landlord, an Australian-based property developer.

“With industrial vacancy levels at a historic low, the development pipeline throughout Epping has solidified the precinct as one of Melbourne’s most desirable industrial suburbs and attracting global companies such as Interroll,” Mr George said.

It comes as industrial vacancy across Australia’s Eastern Seaboard remained constrained, underpinning ongoing rental growth, while the rate of rental growth slowed slightly in Q2.

Recent Knight Frank research found vacancy was sitting at 526,806sqm across the Eastern Seaboard cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane during Q2 2023, which was 36% below the same time last year.

However, available space increased by 19.5% in Q2, with an uptick in Melbourne and Brisbane, while Sydney tightened further.

The Interroll Group was founded in 1959 and has been listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange since 1997.

Interroll Australia has been operating since 1990 and was re-established as a 100% subsidiary business of the Interroll Global Group in 2011.
