Telford-based Filtermist International Ltd (www.filtermist.co.uk
) has restructured its UK business operations “to ensure it delivers a single-source solution for customers looking for cleaner, safer and more productive work
The industrial air filtration specialist has completed a number of acquisitions over the past three years, which have significantly expanded its product and service offering in dust extraction equipment, air filtration technology and the latest industrial vacuum cleaning products.
In order to strengthen its market position, Filtermist will merge the current eight businesses into just two — Filtermist International and Filtermist Systems — operating from sites in Telford, Northampton, Wetherby, Dewsbury and Glasgow.
Filtermist CEO James Stansfield said: “This change is part of a strategic long-term plan we have developed to help us grow globally.
"We are not losing any product brands, merely re-organising how we operate to ensure that our customers continue to benefit from the best service possible.
“As well as increasing our product portfolio through the brands we have acquired, we have also increased our head-count by more than 300%, giving us a substantial nation-wide presence.
"We wanted to capitalise on this by ensuring that our customers can easily access the best knowledge and the best skills that suit their specific requirements.
“There has been a major increase in demand for turn-key solutions that allow customers to go to one organisation and have all of their requirements met to a high standard.
"This is exactly what we are doing with this approach; we are a single-source solutions provider for clean air in industrial workplaces.”
Filtermist is part of the Swedish company Absolent Group, which operates globally through subsidiary companies manufacturing products for collecting oil mist, oil smoke and dust within almost all industrial sectors.
