Eriez, a supplier of separation technologies, hosted its 2017 Business Conference at the Bayfront Convention Center in Erie, Pennsylvania, which is where the company is headquartered, in early October. The two-day event celebrated Eriez’s 75th anniversary and attracted more than 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, according to the company.
“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 in Erie and participated in social events.
The second day of the conference included educational roundtables and an evening reception where a number of attendees were recognized for their achievements and service. World-renowned illusionist and Erie native, Bobby Borgia, entertained the crowd.
To further commemorate its 75th anniversary, Eriez says it will 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 its product breakthroughs, business practices and employee culture, the company says.
