F.O.S. Filtertechnik took over filter specialist Filtekon located in Ennigerloh

As from January 1st, 2018, the F.O.S. Umwelt- und Filtertechnik Deutschland GmbH took over Filtekon, a filter specialist with its headquarters in Ennigerloh. The future of the traditional company had been at stake, as initially, after the age-related retirement of the management, a qualified successor could not be found. Now all parties involved are excited about the best possible solution. The company, which can rely on more than 40 years of experience in the field of dedusting, has been based in Ennigerloh for more than 20 years. Just like F.O.S., Filtekon manufactures and cleans individual, high-quality filter components. The portfolio of both companies also comprises control and maintenance of filter systems.

 

By the turn of the year, Filtekon was completely integrated into the F.O.S. Group that retained all employees, who are now no longer working in Ennigerloh, but at the F.O.S. Headquarters situated in the neighbouring town of Ahlen. The Ennigerloh site will be closed down – however, this is a fact that will not bring about great changes for Filtekon customers, as of now they will profit from the extended portfolio. Differently to Filtekon, F.O.S. offers, in addition, disassembly and reassembly of filter components and further services in connection with filter systems and filter media. “We gladly took the opportunity to take over a rock solid competitor from the neighbouring town. This well-organized company joined us at the right time,” Christian Reining, Managing Director of the F.O.S company group, was pleased to comment on the synergy effects arising from the acquisition. Furthermore, F.O.S. benefits from the existing Filtekon customer base which will move as well.
