ERIE, Pa. (Aug. 11, 2011)—Eriez Manufacturing Co. said it will move its 5-Star Service Center to a 114,00-sq.-ft. building in Erie, about 15 miles from its world headquarters facility.
Service Center Manager Jim Lasko said the move will help streamline operations and improve efficiency.
Eriez said the service center has the machining, fabricating and welding capabilities necessary to rebuild all Eriez equipment as well as some competitive units. Once remanufactured, all Eriez equipment leaves the service center with an “as new” warranty, the company said.
According to Eriez, the company is experiencing significant growth in all areas, making the purchase of additional space a necessity.
President and CEO Tim Shuttleworth said so far in 2011 Eriez has added more than 30 employees at its headquarters, and that a number of these employees will be moving to the new space.
The facility also will handle the manufacturing of Hydroflow Fluid Filtration and Recycling Equipment, Column Flotation Cells and Metals Recycling Equipment.
According to Shuttleworth, Eriez plans to finish some renovations to the space and move operations in by the end of 2011.
