Clarcor buys Bekaert Advanced Filtration

Like Clarcor’s Purolator EFP subsidiary, the Advanced Filtration business manufactures and supplies engineered metal filters and systems used primarily in the polymer fiber and plastics industries.

Clarcor has renamed the newly acquired business Purolator Advanced Filtration.

With estimated 2013 sales of €15 million and around 170 employees, Purolator Advanced Filtration has manufacturing facilities in Belgium and Indonesia, as well as sales personnel in North and South America.

The acquisition includes a supply contract that will allow the combined business to continue to purchase specialized Bekipor metal fiber filtration media from Bekaert for incorporation into certain products.
