By |  October 18, 2017

Eriez hosted its two-day 2017 Business Conference in Erie, Pennsylvania, marking the company’s 75th anniversary.

The event had more than 120 attendees, including top Eriez executives, management personnel and members of the company’s engineering team, as well as representatives from the company’s field sales offices around the globe, according to the company.

“With some of our brightest minds under one roof, we set out to discuss strategies to expand and improve our product lines, streamline operations and position the company for future growth,” says Tim Shuttleworth, president and CEO.  “The event also gave our extended Eriez family a chance to celebrate the company’s ongoing success, highlight our extraordinary people and commemorate our company’s 75-year anniversary.”

The conference started with speeches from Eriez’ chairman, president and other executives. Kelly Riggs, a sales and leadership coach, delivered a keynote address. The group also toured the company’s headquarters plant and Wager facility, and participated in social events.

The second day of the conference featured educational roundtables to discuss challenges and opportunities. At an evening reception, a number of attendees were recognized for their achievements and service.

The company will soon release “From Pioneer to World Authority in Separation Technologies,” an update of a book the company published in 1992 chronicling the events and people that shaped the company in its first 50 years in business. This new edition will cover the company’s 75-year history with photos and stories about product breakthroughs, business practices and employee culture.
