An industrial air filtration and extraction specialist has successfully completed its largest ever acquisition with the £6.6m purchase of Yorkshire-based DCS Group.
Filtermist International, which is part of the Absolent Group, believes the deal will provide the group with the opportunity to increase its global presence in key sectors, including pharmaceutical and woodworking.
It is the latest in a series of recent acquisitions that have included dust filtration systems manufacturer Dustcheck Ltd and customised air movement and air pollution control system specialist Multi-Fan Systems.
“This latest deal is designed to significantly enhance Absolent Group’s presence in the dust and fume extraction market,” commented James Stansfield, Filtermist International CEO.
“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 – the acquisitions we have made so far mean that as a company we are now able to 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 the 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.”
