09.07.2018 Eriez 50th birthday

Eriez Magnetics Europe, Bedwas, Caerphilly, UK, marks its 50th anniversary this year.  From humble beginnings has emerged a company which has built up a strong customer base and can boast many technological achievements and significant growth over half a century.

Eriez Europe was established when Bob Merwin, CEO of Eriez Manufacturing Co. in Erie, USA recognised the opportunity for a European manufacturing headquarters. In order to develop a European presence, Eriez North America collaborated with Sir Alfred Nicholas, founder and chairman of South Wales Switchgear, to establish a European licensee.

The company now employs over 120 staff and designs, develops and manufactures magnetic separation, metal detection, fluid filtration and vibratory equipment at its 53,000ft2 production facility. Eriez serves over 80 markets including mining, quarrying, recycling, ceramics, metalworking, food and mineral processing industries, and is certified with the BS5750 (ISO 9001:2015) quality standard accreditation.

Over the past 50 years, Eriez Europe has secured key strategic acquisitions that have expanded the company’s product offering, including the purchase of metal detection specialist Pulse Technology, manufacturer of sampling systems Prisecter International, former competitor Boxmag Rapid and fluid filtration and recycling equipment specialist Centriforce.

Managing director John Curwen commented: “Eriez Europe has demonstrated remarkable growth since 1968 and we are immensely proud of what has been achieved. The root of our achievements stems from Eriez Europe’s employees and their dedication to selling, designing and manufacturing high quality equipment as well as our loyal customer base.  The past 50 years has witnessed a commendable journey for Eriez Europe and we are confident our growth and success will prosper into the next chapter.”
