winding and assembly services in addition to the processes we
provide today."
Carter Motor Company was founded in 1932 by pioneer radio
and television inventor Alva J. Carter. Among Carter Motor's
early products were the first Dynamotor power supply units for
mobile radio use in military, police and emergency applications.
Today, Carter manufactures a line of DC motors, universal motors, gearmotors, custom motors, converters and tachometers.
Carter currently purchases many of the components used in
its electric motors and then incorporates complete winding,
assembly and testing processes to manufacture its product line.
Going forward many of these components will be manufactured
by Orchid, providing the ability for Carter to be more vertically
integrated and cost effectively provide highly specialized designs and applications to its customers.
Carter's Owner and President, Keith Geisler, commented, "I
could not be happier with this relationship formed with Orchid.
It's a natural fit. Since we are located only 25 minutes from
Orchid, the move from our current facility into the much larger
Orchid facility will mean we retain 100% of our highly talented
workforce and all the years of experience and manufacturing
know-how. Combined with the capabilities and strengths of
Orchid, we can now grow Carter to new levels, diversify our
product offering, and also work jointly with Orchid providing
complete motor assemblies and sub-assemblies for a multitude
of industries and markets".
Orchid International was founded in 1988 by Grant Bibby and
has grown over the years to become a major North American
supplier of components and assemblies for motors, generators and transformers. Orchid acquired the Monroe facility in
2004 from Philips Electronics and has since consolidated it
operations into Monroe. The company has 230,000 sq. ft of
manufacturing space located on 32 acres with significant room
for expansion. Orchid's manufacturing begins with master coils
of steel and then transforms the steel through a multitude of
manufacturing processes, including steel slitting, high speed
lamination stamping, annealing, aluminum die casting, robotic
welding, and final core assembly. Orchid also designs and
manufactures its own precision tooling and automation.

"We plan to break ground later this year and anticipate a 2020
completion date," said Tim Shuttleworth, president and CEO of
Eriez." The new space will be dedicated to creating specialized
repair, testing, demonstration and R&D areas..
"These new areas will be designed to help us grow and
enhance our repair business, facilitate product development,
accommodate bigger projects and pilot tests and provide even
better testing support for Eriez products," said Tim Gland, vice
president and general manager of Eriez-USA. "This expansion
is important to maintaining the success of our North American aftermarket repair business, as it proactively addresses
floor space constraints being brought on by rapid growth. The
expanded capabilities this will bring to our aftermarket business will allow us to offer additional services and even faster
turnaround times."

Bibby, summarizes the strategic benefits of combining with
Carter: "The addition of Carter takes both the Orchid and Carter
businesses to new levels, and opens up tremendous opportunities to provide complete end-to-end solutions for our customers.
We feel this is like 1 plus 1 equals 5."

Eriez Plans Major Expansion of Its Wager
Road Plant in Erie, Pennsylvania
Eriez, a global manufacturer of magnetic lift and separation
equipment, recently announced a major expansion to its Wager Road facility, located 15 miles from the company's world
headquarters in Erie, PA. The expansion will support strategic
growth initiatives for repair, testing and global research and
development activities. The facility, which opened in 2012, is
currently 114,000 square feet. The planned expansion will add
another 38,000 square feet.
