Eriez Celebrates 80 Years in Business

The Eriez story began in 1942 when founder O.F. Merwin installed a permanent magnet in a grain mill. Eriez today has a workforce of more than 900 individuals located throughout 12 wholly owned international subsidiaries on six continents. It is a provider of magnetic separation, flotation, metal detection and material handling equipment technology.

Eriez process engineers and scientists have developed product breakthroughs in the areas of rare earth magnets, superconducting technology, flotation, vibratory feeders, metal detection, auto scrap recycling equipment, suspended electromagnets, eddy current separation and proprietary manufacturing techniques.

Eriez continues to be a family-run company. O.F. Merwin's grandson Richard Merwin currently serves as Chairman. Richard's late father, Bob Merwin, had a global vision for Eriez and took the company into international markets in the 1950s.

Eriez President and CEO Lukas Guenthardt noted, "We are lucky to have ownership and a board of directors who value long-term investments and profitable growth over short-term profits. We have worked hard at building and maintaining loyal customers that value the quality and trust the reliability of our products and services. With a focus on continuous product advancement and market expansion, both domestically and overseas, Eriez is poised to thrive for years to come."

"The integrity, commitment, responsiveness and unmatched customer service provided by our outstanding staff is what truly keeps us on the leading edge," added Guenthardt. "As a corporation and as individuals, we are dedicated to making a lasting, positive impact on the well-being of the communities where we live and work. We believe this approach produces an atmosphere where businesses and communities can collaborate and prosper."

The company's network of longtime sales representatives has played a significant role in the company's history and success, according to Eriez leadership.

John Blicha, Eriez Senior Director of Global Marketing and Brand Management, said the company has special events planned throughout 2022 to commemorate this milestone anniversary and to recognize its customers and employees.
