July 13, 2016 – The Micronics Engineered Filtration Group – consisting of leading wet and dry engineered filtration companies including Micronics, Inc., Southern Filter Media (SFM), C.P. Environmental (CPE), United Process Control (UPC), and AeroPulse – is pleased to announce the acquisition of certain filter media production equipment and product inventory assets of Midwesco Filter Resources.
From 1978 through 2012, both CPE and UPC supported Midwesco’s customers with industry-leading baghouse services including: inspections, field maintenance, mechanical repair/rebuild services, changeouts, troubleshooting, and baghouse parts & accessories. CPE and UPC’s expert service crews executed some of the largest bag installation, maintenance & service projects – under the Midwesco name – for a host of customers across North America. Our service crews and sales professionals have extensive experience servicing the utility, coal-fired power plants, industrial boilers, steel, energy-from-waste, cement, lime, coatings, chemicals & food, to name a few industries served.
“Our dry filtration companies have provided products and services for many of Midwesco’s customers for many years, whether through our services at C.P. Environmental (CPE) and United Process Control (UPC), or with high-quality filter bags outsourced to Southern Filter Media (SFM) by Midwesco,” according to Don Eldert, President, Micronics Dry Filtration Group & Executive VP, Micronics Filtration Holdings, Inc. “These purchases further underscore the commitment of the Micronics Engineered Filtration family of companies to continuing the legacy of providing industrial baghouse/dust collector customers across North America with unrivaled dry filtration product and service offerings,” said Mr. Eldert.
In 2014 and 2015, CPE, UPC, AeroPulse and SFM all joined the Micronics Engineered Filtration family and collectively strengthened its dry filtration offerings to better serve customers’ pollution control needs.
SFM has designed and produced high-quality filter bags for baghouses in North America since 1973. SFM produces high-temperature felts, fiberglass, polyester and polypropylene filter media in a variety of finishes including ePTFE membrane, all in a state-of-the-art bag manufacturing facility.
Over the last 30+ years, SFM has produced thousands of bags for Midwesco to ensure that Midwesco could meet the delivery and quality expectations of their customers. SFM continued to support Midwesco’s production needs up until the day they closed their doors (in June 2016); SFM recently shipped the last orders they received from Midwesco.
“What was true 30+ years ago still holds true today: C.P. Environmental, United Process Control, AeroPulse, and Southern Filter Media stand ready to meet customers’ dust control/emissions challenges and exceed their customers’ expectations,” Mr. Eldert added.
