Herding Filtration Opens Houston Sales Office

January 31, 2008

Herding Filtertechnik GmbH and Herding Filtration LLC have announced the opening of their second U.S. office. Herding will open an office in Houston on March 1 that will join the current Herding office in Detroit. John M. Kelly will assume responsibilities as General Manager of the Houston office.

According to Dr. Urs Herding, President, Herding Filtertechnik GmbH, and Christophe Vanoplinus, Operations Manager, Herding Filtration LLC, "The new location will allow us to better meet the growing, nationwide demands of our clients."

Headquartered in Amberg, Germany where the company was founded in 1977, Herding opened its Detroit office in 1999 to better accommodate North American client requests. The new Houston location is expected to emulate the success of the Detroit office and support continuing business growth in the Southern and Western States.

Herding is a global leader in permanent filter media for process industries. The company’s Sinter-Plate filters have been used for more than 25 years in a variety of application in several industries, including powder painting, chemicals, pharmaceutical, metal processing, glass/ceramics, laser industry, cement, and foodstuffs.
