History

Erez is named after the first nucleus that settled the kibbutz. They were members of the Noar Oved nucleus from Petah Tikva. They originally settled on ground in the area of Or HaNer in 1949. However, in 1950 they were resettled in its current location on land belonging to the depopulated Arab village of Dimra.

Economy

The kibbutz has three main industries; agriculture (arable and fruit farming as well as animal husbandry), manufacturing (the "Erez Thermoplastics Products" company manufactures plastic covered materials) and research and development.
