The family run business has already established successful divisions in Australia and the USA and exports almost 90% of its output to more than 60 countries.

Dr Simon Bartram, who has worked with Walker Filtration for five years, will head up the Japanese office as business unit leader. Walker Filtration says that his knowledge of the compressed air industry and specifically product development makes him ideally placed to lead the division to success.
 
“We are excited to be continuing to expand our global horizons with the opening of a new division in Yokohama, Japan. With a confident and experienced team, the division is well positioned to service and grow our client base in Asia-Pacific,” said Lianne Walker MBE, Walker Filtration group managing director.
