Domino’s® and Eriez®, two established companies who are leaders in their respective trades, recently celebrated 17 years of doing business together. On November 8, 2018, Eriez Metal Detector Product Manager Ray Spurgeon presented Domino’s Steve Covert, director of Supply Chain Strategic Projects, and Domino’s Reliability Maintenance Engineer Mike Popa, with a plaque in Ann Arbor, Michigan, recognizing the milestone.
According to a press release, Eriez® metal detectors have been in use at Domino’s since 2001, operating at their Supply Chain Centers worldwide inspecting rounded dough and fresh toppings. Most recently, Domino’s initiated the process of upgrading their equipment with Eriez’ newest Xtreme® Metal Detector models.
In a press release, Covert stated, “Eriez is a wonderful partner and that’s why we selected them as our preferred supplier. Our metal detectors are an integral part of our HACCP program and Eriez’ reliability and support are unsurpassed. Further, each of our Supply Chain Centers has a variety of layout limitations and Eriez engineered custom solutions for each of
our production lines.”
Domino’s also utilized Eriez’ 22,000-squarefoot Central Test Lab to ensure their stringent sensitivity requirements were met. Popa explained, “Product was sent from local stores and a team from Domino’s visited Eriez to witness the test.”
Eriez also hosted live testing from its state-of-the-art media room for Supply Chain managers from all over the world that could not make a trip to Eriez headquarters in Pennsylvania. “The online demonstration enabled us to watch the testing in real time — as if we were standing right at the equipment — which saved us thousands in travel expenses,” Popa stated.
