PORTSMOUTH, NH, USA – October 25, 2017 – The Micronics Engineered Filtration Group is pleased to announce the expansion of its filter media manufacturing capacity through a dedicated new facility in the La Angostura Manufacturing Community in Saltillo, Mexico. The new facility, located approximately 160 miles southwest of the U.S. border, complements Micronics’ existing filtration media manufacturing facilities in the northeastern and southeastern parts of the U.S.
The plant in Saltillo, Coahuila is a 30,000 square feet, state-of-the-art facility that employs a responsive, customer-focused, full-time workforce and all new manufacturing equipment, with a focus on both woven filter fabrics and non-woven felt fabrics, depending on our customers’ precise filtration application needs. The Micronics Engineered Filtration Group has conducted extensive cross-training and implemented identical manufacturing processes in our Saltillo and U.S. plants to ensure the consistently high level of quality our customers have come to rely upon.
“Micronics’ new filtration media production facility is an integral part of our focus on being best able to consistently meet or exceed customers’ expectations for quality, short lead times, and on-time delivery across the broad range of markets and filtration applications that Micronics serves. The convenient location of our new Saltillo facility makes it central for efficient distribution of our industry-leading filtration media into both U.S. markets and Mexico,” said Bernie Faulkner, Micronics’ President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Whether with filter cloth for all makes and sizes of filter presses or filtration media for pulse-jet, shaker, or reverse-air baghouses, we want our customers to benefit from and feel confident in Micronics’ firm commitment – and supporting investment – in being the best filtration supplier in the industry across every dimension of service,” Faulkner added.
“Simply stated, our new highly-responsive facility ensures that Micronics has the manufacturing capacity needed to support increased demand for our filtration products across the Americas and the world,” stated Glenn Gertridge, Vice President, Operations for the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group.
