Filtration Group Forms Alliance
Filtration Group, Inc., Aurora, Illinois, U.S.A., recently entered into an alliance with Mikropor, a Turkish filter manufacturing company. As a result of this partnership, both companies will broaden their gas turbine product lines and expand their global presence. This alliance also marks the second major global business move that Filtration Group has made within the last six months; the first being the acquisition of Netherlands-based Filtrair in June.
Filtration Group and Mikropor saw value in the alliance because of their combined experience in gas turbine filtration, an established but growing segment in the filtration industry. Mikropor’s long-standing relationships with their customers provide the experience to create products specifically tailored to the unique filtration requirements of gas turbines. Both Filtration Group and Mikropor have a reputation for determining clients’ filtration issues and developing new media to eliminate the problems.
“Our alliance will provide a wider breadth of products that neither company could create on their own,” said Kurt Ost, sales manager for Filtration Group. “Our customers stand to gain the most because it will be easier to distribute a broader range of filtration products any where in the world.”
