Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) announces that its parent, Camfil (Stockholm, Sweden), has signed an agreement to acquire 100 percent of Handte Umwelttechnik GmbH in Germany, and Handte's operations in Switzerland, the Czech Republic, and China. Pending approval from the authorities in Germany, the acquisition, is expected to close in the first quarter of 2014. Handte will be part of the Camfil APC business unit, which specializes in industrial dust and fume collection.
Handte is the leading German manufacturer and provider of environmental engineering products, filter technology processes, and air pollution control applications. With more than 120 years of experience, the company is a recognized specialist in exhaust air purification for a wide range of manufacturing industries.
“Handte has a full line of dust collectors, mist collectors and wet scrubbers that strategically complement the Farr Gold Series cartridge dust collection line,” said Camfil APC president Lee Morgan. “The integration of these product lines will broaden our portfolio and strengthen the company's industrial air pollution control offerings to customers in the U.S. and internationally."
Key applications for these products include dry processing industries including chemical, food, and pharmaceutical.
