Eagle Filters sets up US sales operation

Finland’s Eagle Filters has launched a sales company in the United States.

Eagle Filters US will be headed up by Ken Ericsson, who will work together with Shawn de Troye.

Through his work with National Inspection & Consultants, Ericsson has a decade of experience supporting and servicing the power generation industry’s air infiltration needs, working directly with major OEMs and end users.

de Troye has more than 20 years of experience in structural engineering and project management, working as a structural engineer for AEC Engineering and Technical Field Advisor for the Donaldson Co, before joining National Inspection and Consultants LLC as Industrial Services Sales Rep Supervisor.

“I am very excited to be working with this high-class product, as well as developing a service business for Eagle Filters in the US,” said Ericsson. “The filter technology has proven itself in one of the premier natural gas power generation assets in the entire US and this reference provides a great platform for US sales to launch as well as provide for an all encompassing inlet service support business for Eagle Filters within North America.”

Eagle Filters is part of the Loudspring Group, a Nasdaq First North Helsinki listed company. The launch of the US operations with the newly recruited team of Eagle Filters US is in line with Loudspring’s strategy of becoming a fully-fledged industrial group of companies.

“After much preparation for Eagle Filters in the US we now have the local team in place to kick off operations,” said Loudspring CEO Lassi Noponen. “Loudspring has gradually increased its ownership in Eagle Filters over the years because we know that their technology is exceptional and that the market potential for them is significant.”
