Learn more about the History of the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group here.

In 1983…Micronics was incorporated in the U.S. to manufacture and supply technical filter media for liquid-solid separation. Building upon its core expertise in filter cloth – a critical ingredient to optimizing any filter press operation – Micronics expanded its manufacturing locations and its filtration product line to include filter presses, filter plates, parts and subsystems, and unparalleled field service to maximize filter press uptime.

In 1990…Micronics Filtration Ltd. was established in Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom to manufacture, distribute, and service filtration products in the European market as well as in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.  

In 2009…Micronics entered into a strategic partnership with Ishigaki for North America and South America to market their high-capacity filter press systems as well as provide expert field service & spare parts for their LASTA MC systems in the mining & mineral processing industries.

In late 2014 and in 2015…Micronics expanded into dry particulate filtration, augmenting its strong liquid-solid separation foundations. Southern Filter Media (“SFM”), C.P. Environmental (“CPE”), United Process Control (“UPC”), and AeroPulse all joined the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group, laying the foundations for Micronics as Your Single Source for Filter Press and Baghouse Solutions.

In 2017…to meet the increased demand for Micronics’ filter media products, Micronics announced the expansion of our filter media manufacturing capacity through a new, dedicated facility in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico.

At the end of 2018…Micronics transitioned its filter cloth manufacturing from Portsmouth, NH to centrally-located Chattanooga, TN, USA. We announced the opening of this state-of-the-art filter media manufacturing facility in May 2019 and it is home to both high-quality filter cloth for pressure filtration as well as high-quality filter bags for leading dust collection facilities.

As of August 31, 2020…Micronics’ global headquarters is based in Chattanooga, TN, USA, adjacent to our USA Filter Media manufacturing facility.

Since April 2020…Chris Cummins has been President and CEO of the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group

Micronics has been a portfolio company of Vance Street Capital, a Los Angeles-based private equity firm since 2013.
