Eriez Europe continue to expand despite Brexit uncertainty
Company to increase production capacity at its European headquarters in South Wales
FOLLOWING a prolonged upturn in sales, Eriez are investing €400,000 in a new rotor manufacturing facility to expand their existing European manufacturing headquarters in South Wales, 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 UK facility will add a third rotor manufacturing site to the company’s global network.
Eriez Europe will manufacture and stock a range of global eddy current separator rotors on site, allowing customers to have quick access to process-critical spare rotors when required.
The investment at Eriez Europe will include a high-speed balancing machine and a filament-winding machine to facilitate the intricate manufacture of the company’s advanced range of eddy current separators, which are designed to recover non-ferrous metals from a wide variety of waste streams.
The new facility will increase production capacity of eddy units by a third each year, promoting the Eriez brand worldwide and ensuring that the best possible service is provided for new and existing customers alike.
Commenting on the factory expansion and investment, John Curwen, managing director of Eriez Europe, said: ‘Following the continued success of supplying Eriez eddy current separators to a diverse range of industries, we are excited to be able to significantly expand our capabilities at Eriez Europe and 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.’
