Filtermist moves into new market

Industrial air-filtration specialist Filtermist International, part of the Swedish Absolent Group, has acquired dust-removal expert Dustcheck Ltd in a deal worth £2.3m. Dustcheck manufactures industrial dust collectors and industrial air-filtration systems at its premises in Stoke. The acquisition by Filtermist is designed to strengthen the company’s service offering in the UK’s dust-extraction market as part of growth plans.

Filtermist’s managing director James Stansfield says: “Filtermist is the UK market leader for oil-mist extraction and began expanding its service proposition to include dust, fume and smoke when it became part of the Absolent Group in 2010. The company’s capabilities increased again with the acquisition of Filtertech Ltd and Multi Fan Systems last year; the deal with Dustcheck will further strengthen our dust extraction offering – particularly in large, centralised extraction systems.”
