Eriez Headquarters Expansion Enables Company to More Effectively Serve Heavy Equipment Industries

Press release date: June 11, 2007

Eriez, world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications, recently completed a 30,000 square foot expansion of its plant located in Erie, PA, which serves as the company's World Headquarters. The additional high-ceiling space gives the company the ability to manufacture large magnets and systems in-house. According to Eriez, that means improved delivery and service for customers in the heavy equipment industries. Dan Norrgran, Eriez' Heavy Industries Market Manager, explains that customers in the mining, recycling, foundries, aggregates, utilities and abrasives industries typically utilize Eriez' largest magnets and systems. "We look forward to the opportunity the expansion provides to help us serve our existing customers better, and anticipate welcoming new customers as a result of our improved capabilities." The Erie plant, which opened in 1963, ships Eriez equipment across North America and around the world. The facility houses the company's sales, marketing, engineering, research and manufacturing operations, as well as corporate offices. Before the expansion, which was begun in fall 2006, the plant was 100,000 square feet. "The primary objective for expanding our Pennsylvania facility is to better serve our customers through faster delivery, more efficient service and improved quality," said Tim Shuttleworth, Eriez President and CEO. "Instead of turning to sub-contractors to build our largest magnets and systems, we can now complete those projects right here in Erie. This allows us to more closely monitor quality, deliver products more quickly and improve productivity." Eriez is recognized as world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications. The company's magnetic separation, metal detection, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the process, metalworking, packaging, recycling, mining, aggregate and textile industries. Eriez manufactures and markets these products through eleven international facilities located on five continents.
