History

Micronics is well-known for its liquid-solid separation expertise and we are a worldwide authority on filter press cloth, the key to optimizing a filter press operation.

Through a sound strategy of building, growing, innovating, and relentlessly focusing on customer satisfaction, we expanded into dry particulate filtration, augmenting our strong pressure filtration foundations.

In 2022, the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group acquired National Filter Media (“NFM”) and Filterfab, further expanding our portfolio of engineered filtration solutions to better serve customers’ advanced filtration needs! Micronics now brings three areas of expertise to the global filtration marketplace, Pressure Filtration, Vacuum Filtration, and Dry/Baghouse Filtration!

With the additions of NFM and Filterfab, the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group now combines strong, trusted filtration brand names including Micronics, NFM, Filterfab, SFM, CPE, UPC, AeroPulse, Midwesco, and Fabricated Filters.

Micronics helps customers worldwide to reduce costs, increases efficiencies, extend the life of their filtration equipment and ensure environmental compliance. We are continually innovating and evolving to meet our customers’ needs around the globe. Learn more about the History of the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group here.

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.

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. We couldn’t be prouder of the tremendous capabilities of our UK-based team and you can count on their continued ingenuity and customer focus!

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.

2013

Micronics proudly becomes a portfolio company of Vance Street Capital, a Los Angeles-based private equity firm.

2014 – 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 a trusted single source for liquid-solid separation as well as baghouse solutions.

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.

2019

Micronics transitioned its filter cloth manufacturing from Portsmouth, NH to centrally-located Chattanooga, TN, USA in May 2019 and this state-of-the-art facility is home to both high-quality filter press cloth for leading pressure filtration applications as well as high-quality filter bags for leading dust collection facilities.

Chris Cummins joined the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group as its President and CEO in April 2020.

August 2020

Micronics’ global headquarters are now based in centrally-located Chattanooga, TN, USA, adjacent to one of our US-based Filter Media manufacturing facilities. We love being based in Chattanooga, the “Scenic City.”

February 2022

Micronics was excited to welcome National Filter Media (“NFM”) and Filterfab to the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group’s family of trusted engineered filtration brands in early 2022. NFM has been proudly providing industrial air pollution control and liquid filtration solutions since 1906.

March 2022

Micronics introduced a new company logo and brand identity which recognizes and celebrates the legacy and brand equity that NFM brings to the markets we serve.
