Eriez 2017 Business Conference marked company’s 75th anniversary


October 16, 2017 - In early October, Eriez hosted its 2017 Business Conference at the Bayfront Convention Center in Erie, Pa. The two-day event celebrated the company’s 75th year in business and attracted over 120 attendees, including top Eriez executives, management personnel and members of the company’s engineering team as well as representatives from Eriez field sales offices around the globe.

“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 President and CEO Tim Shuttleworth.  “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 2017 Business Conference kicked off with speeches from Eriez’ Chairman, President and other key executives. Kelly Riggs, a well known sales and leadership coach, delivered the keynote address.  The group also toured the Eriez headquarters plant and Wager facility, both located in Erie, and participated in social events.

The second day of the conference included educational roundtables where participants discussed challenges and opportunities. At a reception held in the evening, a number of distinguished attendees were recognized for their achievements and service. World-renowned illusionist and Erie, PA-native Bobby Borgia provided entertainment for the crowd.

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