Eriez completed a 38,000-sq.-ft. expansion to a facility in Erie, Pennsylvania, giving the company more space to provide full-scale testing of its largest equipment utilized in heavy industries.

The expansion also impacts Eriez’s global research and development activities, enabling the company to support the continuing development of its flotation technologies.

According to Eriez, the expansion on Wager Road was required to support strategic growth initiatives for product testing, global R&D, and service and repair.

“The greater opportunities and enhanced capabilities afforded by our new space will be particularly significant to customers we serve in heavy industries, especially in recycling and minerals processing,” says Darrell Milton, Eriez’s heavy industries market manager. “The new plant space will also allow for testing of production-scale recycling equipment.”

In addition, the expansion includes a new electronics lab that provides testing and development space for Eriez’s Xtreme metal detectors, new magnetic products and Industrial Internet of Things product integration.

The company anticipates all expanded R&D and testing facilities at the Wager Road plant to be fully operational early in the second quarter this year.
