Following a prolonged upturn in sales, Eriez is investing $425,000 in a new rotor manufacturing facility to expand its existing extensive European manufacturing headquarters in South Wales, UK, which supplies magnetic separation and metal detection equipment to customers across the UK and Europe.
Complementing Eriez’ Eddy Current manufacturing sites in North America and Asia, the expansion of the well- established South Wales facility adds a third rotor manufacturing site to the company’s global network, strengthening Eriez’s ability to provide consistent levels of customer service excellence worldwide. Eriez Europe will manufacture and stock a range of global Eddy Current Separator rotors on-site, enabling customers to have quick access to process-critical spare rotors should they be required.
The investment at Eriez Europe will include a high-speed balancing machine and a filament winding machine to facilitate the intricate manufacture of Eriez’ advanced range of Eddy Current Separators, designed to recover non-ferrous metals from a wide variety of waste streams.
The new facility will increase production capacity of Eddy Current Separator rotors per year by a third, promoting globalization of the Eriez brand and ensuring that the best possible service is provided for new and existing customers alike.
“Following continued success of supplying the Eriez Eddy Current Separators into a diverse range of industries, we are excited to be able to significantly expand our capabilities at Eriez Europe and to facilitate further growth, strengthening our market position both locally in the UK and worldwide. The ability to supply the rotors globally demonstrates our ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of our customers and offering them the best possible solutions,” said John Curwen, Managing Director at Eriez Europe.
