Filtermist International completes acquisitionTelford-based Filtermist International, a specialist in industrial air filtration and extraction (and part of the Absolent Group), has completed its largest-ever acquisition with the £6.6 million purchase of Yorkshire-based DCS Group.

This is the latest in a series of acquisitions that have included dust filtration systems manufacturer Dustcheck Ltd in Stoke-on-Trent and Telford-based Multi-Fan Systems (a specialist in customised air movement and air pollution control systems).

James Stansfield, Filtermist International CEO (, said: “This latest deal is designed to significantly enhance Absolent Group’s presence in the dust and fume extraction market.

"We have extremely ambitious targets over the next five years, and increasing our presence in all of our market sectors is a key strategic objective. We will be combining the strengths of our companies to offer our customers a complete solution for air extraction and filtration.

“Traditionally, Filtermist has been known for its oil mist extraction capabilities, but the acquisitions we have made so far mean that we can now offer dust and fume extraction, VOC abatement, odour control, solvent recovery and more.

“We offer a full turn-key service for customers that need to ensure their air is free from a wide range of contaminants. This ranges from initial recommendations and project management services to equipment manufacture and supply, installation, commissioning and after-sales support.”

Founded over 30 years ago, the DCS Group consists of a number of specialist enterprises, including DCS Ltd and Cades Ltd — both with a reputation for providing high-quality dust extraction systems in a number of industry sectors, including pharmaceutical and woodworking — plus Ecogate Ltd and Gallito Ltd, which between them manufacture a range of products, such as FastClip ducting and microprocessor-controlled extraction optimisation systems.
