Our Story

Founded in 1962, our company has served the air, gas, and liquid filtration needs of the industrial marketplace for over 55 years. As a family owned business, we began by serving the Upstate New York region, and like many distributors during this time, we travelled from company to company to cultivate relationships with our customers, competing with other distributors based on exclusive territories.

As our company has evolved, we have set ourselves apart from the competition, embracing innovation and change, knowing that it directly benefits our customers. We have used the opportunities offered by the internet to our advantage; expanding our reach from regional to global, providing our technical expertise and top of the line filtration equipment to customers around the world. Our filtration products are used worldwide by OEM's and end users in virtually every industrial application.
