25.09.2017 Dustcheck acquired by Filtermist International

Dustcheck Ltd, Stoke-on-Trent, UK, has been acquired by industrial air filtration specialist Filtermist International, part of the Swedish Absolent Group. Established in 1978, Dustcheck manufactures industrial dust collectors and industrial air filtration systems, as well as offering after-sales services including LEV (local exhaust ventilation) testing. Ed and Di Spires, who jointly owned Dustcheck, will be retiring from the company whilst all other staff including the existing management team, will remain at the Stoke office. Filtermist International, based in Telford, is currently enjoying record growth. Sales increased by 30% between 2015 and 2016 and acquisitions are a key factor in the company’s plans for the future. 
Increasing capability in dust extraction is a natural progression for the Telford company. It has distributed dust extraction filters from sister firm Absolent since 2010, and dust control accounts for a significant proportion of the centralised extraction systems designed and installed by Filtermist subsidiary Multi Fan Systems. Managing director James Stansfield commented: “Filtermist is the UK market leader for oil mist extraction and began expanding its service proposition to include dust, fume and smoke when it became part of the Absolent Group in 2010.”;
