Eriez®-Europe Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Press release date: July 7, 2008

Erie, Pa.- Eriez® Magnetics, world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications, announces the 40th anniversary of its Europe division, Eriez Magnetics Europe Ltd., one of the largest facilities in Eriez' global network. "From humble beginning in 1968 as an Eriez licensee, Eriez-Europe emerged," said Tim Shuttlewoth, President and CEO. "The company now develops high-tech process equipment utilized throughout the world." From 1968-1974, the company that was destined to become Eriez-Europe operated as an Eriez licensee and quickly grew sales of Eriez products to Europe, while developing a loyal customer base. In 1974 an affiliated company, Eriez Magnetics UK Ltd., was established as Eriez' European sales, manufacturing, design and test headquarters. The company immediately experienced rapid growth fuelled by investment in the British coal industry. After a surge of acquisitions, Eriez-Europe is now uniquely positioned to offer a single source for magnetic separation, metal detection, vibratory handling and material sampling equipment to protect machinery, improve product quality, enhance material handling methods and verify quality standards. The company markets products throughout Europe, Russia and North Africa. Today, Eriez-Europe is the largest magnetic separator manufacturer in the UK, and the first ever in the world to attain the international quality standard ISO 9001. With more than 100 employees, it operates on an 11,500 square foot site approximately 11 miles north of Cardiff, the capital city of Wales in the United Kingdom. Its offices and facilities are modern, well-resourced and include a state-of-the-art test laboratory equipped with the largest range of high intensity magnetic separation test equipment anywhere in the world, including the latest POWERFLUX superconducting magnet. There are designated areas for wet and dry material processing, a metal detector and electronic metal separator demonstration area as well as XRF analytical equipment. Customers can have a sample of their material tested to ensure that the best separation and detection equipment is chosen for a particular application and separation objective. With a dedicated and experienced staff, as well as an expansive network of agents and distributors, Eriez-Europe continues to grow at a rapid pace. To honor its 40th anniversary, a star in the Hercules Constellation has been named 'Eriez Ruby' in recognition of the talented and skilled team that has contributed to Eriez' success since 1968. Eriez is recognized as world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications. The company's magnetic lift and separation, metal detection, x-ray, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the process, metalworking, packaging, recycling, mining, aggregate and textile industries.
