Heinzmann Holding has announced the acquisition of IFT, an Austrian company based in Uderns which specialises in the development of filters for internal combustion engines.
Founded in 2011, IFT primarily produces oil mist separators and blow-by filters for use in mobile and stationary engines across various sectors, including plant off-highway machinery, power generation and marine.
Products manufactured by IFT use patented technology developed using bench and field testing. The filters are said to reduce oil consumption and maintenance requirements, together with related system costs.
IFT products also comply with current regulatory requirements.
Markus Gromer, CEO of the Heinzmann Group said: “Due to the increasing tightening of emission regulations and focused efforts towards increased efficiency, these innovative technologies will be in greater demand worldwide in the future.
“The products of IFT places great value on maximum environmental protection and resource conservation,” he added.
