EOE/M/F/Vet/Disabled Company Description: Intralox was founded on the commitment to an idea. In 1947, Intralox founder JM Lapeyre patented the first industrial shrimp peeler, but encountered problems moving the peeled shrimp on metal conveyor belts due to rust and corrosion building on the belts. He approached major rubber and steel conveyor belt manufacturers to produce a modular plastic belt, but he was told this was not feasible. Undeterred, JM invented the modular plastic conveyor belts and thus, Intralox was born. Over the last four decades, Intralox has developed a worldwide reputation for ethical and responsible business practices, and maintained our founder's commitment to treating employees, customers, and suppliers with honesty, fairness, and respect. Our growth and sustained success is the result of a diligent focus on continuous improvement, a core belief that self-managed people are our greatest asset, and a commitment to ideas, teamwork, and effort. We pushed past the boundaries of traditional conveying systems with the revolutionary invention of modular plastic belting, and continue to move beyond industry standards. With over 800 active patents and new products such as our Activated Roller Belt Technology and Food Safe Technology, working with Intralox allows you to experience our uncompromising commitment to providing solutions and solving problems for our customers. Self-managed people are our greatest asset. Continuous Improvement.
