Camfil AB has acquired the French air filter company Chimbault-Peyridieux.

Established in Mauriac in 1978, the family-owned company designs and manufactures air filters for air treatment and work environments. The acquisition of Chimbault-Peyridieux will expand Camfil’s share of the French comfort market and give the company a potential boost in carbon media sales and clean process sales.

Chimbault-Peyridieux’s product line will complement Camfil’s existing portfolio of high quality filtration products. They bring market knowledge and manufacturing capabilities which will reinforce Camfil’s position in France.

“I am very pleased to welcome the French company Chimbault-Peyridieux to the Camfil family,” said Mark Simmons, EVP Filter CEBI (Continental Europe & British Isles) and CEO designate. “Its product expertise and market insight will help to further strengthen Camfil’s leading position in the French market.”
