Eriez Reports Records for Orders, Shipments
February 3, 2012 – Tim Shuttleworth, Eriez President and CEO, said that the company’s Erie, Pa., headquarters facility closed 2011 with more than $100 million (USD) in orders while Eriez-Japan, the company’s affiliate in Japan, finished the year with more than $1 billion Yen (JPY) or $12 million (USD) in shipments. “It’s been a banner year for Eriez across the globe,” said Shuttleworth. “In addition to exceptional sales and shipment numbers from Eriez HQ and Eriez-Japan, all Eriez divisions showed strong performances in 2011. For the first time in our history, we have exceeded our previous record year worldwide by more than 40 percent.” Increased demand in 2011 prompted Eriez to expand its operations in five countries. Eriez purchased an additional building in Erie, Pa., approximately 15 miles from its World Headquarters. Internationally, the company is also expanding in Canada, China, India and the United Kingdom.
