Employer of the Year Nominee: FMC Technologies

Posted: Updated:

Every year, Erie County Economic Development Corporation honors top local employers and entrepreneurs. The winners will be announced January 23rd.

 One of the nominees for employer of the year is FMC Technologies, the local division of a global company. The company once known as Smith-Meter makes valves and meters used by the oil industry around the world.

 FMC Vice-President Jim Ertl said, "Our devices are used wherever  there is oil and wherever there is the transfer of ownership of oil, from the crude  pipelines all the way through the refineries."

 The local company says sales have doubled since 2009. And another 30% growth is forecast for 2014. And the current work force of 325 will grow significantly as well.

  Ertl said, "Our employment continues to increase. We anticipate an additional 100 employees headquartered here in Erie."

 The company expects sales to total about $200 million. And about 50% of the supply chain is local, pumping in an additional $60-$80 million into the local economy.
