As of 31 March, Twin Filter officially merged with Velcon Filters. Velcon Filters, headquartered in Colorado Springs, CO, is a portfolio company within The Sterling Group and was acquired in 2009 as a platform to execute a buy-and-build strategy. Velcon manufactures filtration systems, including vessels and replacement cartridges, which meet specific requirements for fluid filtration processes in a variety of domestic and international end-markets, primarily the jet fuel market.
The merge with Velcon gives Twin Filter the opportunity to further expand its sales area in North-America. As of the 1 July, the Velcon Process office in Houston will continue as Twin Filter USA. The new office will provide more local support to our customers.
Together with the offices in Australia and South America, Twin Filter has a worldwide base for its sales activities. In a market full of turmoil we have been pursuing a solid business growth with competitive product development and an expansion of our network. Our aim is to continue to grow and expand presence so that our products and services are more easily accessible to an even bigger part of the world. But, as usual, we will retain the excellent customer service you are used to.
Twin Filter, founded in 1985, designs, engineers and manufactures a full range of filtration equipment and consumables. Our products and filtration support services are used globally, in more than 80 countries, throughout a variety of industries. Twin Filter has its own manufacturing facilities and produces standard filter consumables for liquid, air and gas applications, along with custom made products for OEMs. To assure short lines to our customers all over the world and to guarantee local content, we have a sales and production office in Brazil and last year we opened a sales office in Australia. Twin Filter serves industries such as oilfield, chemical, electronic and pharmaceutical, food and beverage markets.
Our engineers are continuously innovating. Besides our standard filter equipment, we also offer complete packages including all auxiliaries such as pumps and storage tanks. All these products comply with the highest standards. We are experienced in local standards and codes, such as U-stamp, ASME, Australian Standard, and many others. For your temporary jobs, we have a full range of rental units we can offer you.
