Eriez® is experiencing a rise in demand for its metal detection product line, with an increase in sales of more than 140 percent over last year and double the total sales volume in this product area since 2012. The company has responded by adding staff and expanding its metal detector manufacturing space.
Since the 2013 introduction of the Xtreme® Metal Detector, Eriez’ seventh generation system, sales have flourished. The company has made staff and space accommodations throughout the years to shorten lead times and keep manufacturing in the United States. Eriez’ latest modifications include doubling its lab technicians and manufacturing staff, adding a second metal detector production shift and increasing the floor space dedicated to metal detector manufacturing at the company’s Erie, PA headquarters.
Metal detection equipment sales continue to soar both domestically and internationally. According to the company, notable and rapid global growth is currently occurring in the UK, Pacific Rim and Mexico. Eriez is also observing a marked increase in its original equipment manufacturer (OEM) business.
Eriez Metal Detector Product Manager Ray Spurgeon explains, “The revolutionary design of the Xtreme Metal Detector and Eriez’ industry-leading service and support have been the most significant factors contributing to our ongoing success.” Xtreme Metal Detector units feature an incredibly intuitive, user friendly interface which employs the most effective inspection algorithm. With 24/7 remote support (SMART X7), customers can instantaneously access Eriez’ highly trained sales force to solve problems around the clock.
Eriez now offers a full line of Xtreme Metal Detectors for every application, including packaging, liquid line, webline, tablet press, vertical form, fill and seal and a new, completely re-designed vertical system. Nineteen of the most popular models and sizes are available for two-day shipping.
