Eriez Breaks Ground for New China Plant

February 3, 2006
Eriez recently broke ground on a new manufacturing facility situated on five acres of land in Qinhuangdao, Hebei Province, about 200 miles north of Beijing, China. This will be Eriez' second plant in China (the first was opened in Shanghai in January 2003). The new facility will manufacture all Eriez products, focusing on suspended magnets, wet drum separators and sampling systems.

The first phase of construction will include a workshop of approximately 30,000 square feet, an office of 12,000 square feet and a cafeteria of 5000 square feet. When the third and last phase of the project is complete, the total workshop space will be approximately 90,000 square feet. Eriez, which plans to hire approximately 50 people during the first two years, anticipates that the new facility will be fully operational by the first half of 2006.
