Filtration Group buys the Facet filtration business

Filtration Group Corp has acquired the global Facet filtration business from Parker-Hannifin Corp.

Facet manufactures and markets filter housings, filter cartridges and complete filtration systems for hydrocarbon filtration and separation, and is a leader in global aviation fuel filtration. The Facet business includes teams in the US, France, Spain, Italy, the UK, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and Malaysia.

The acquisition of Facet will expand the Filtration Group’s offerings in the aviation, marine and diversified industrial and environmental markets.

“The Facet brand has endured as a technical leader for 75 years, and this acquisition is an ideal complement to our deep-rooted commitment to make the world safer, healthier and more productive,” said George Nolen, CEO of Filtration Group. “I am pleased to be able to offer more filtration capabilities and applications to our customers.”

“Filtration Group recognizes Facet’s level of excellence as innovators and technical experts,” said Craig Randall, global business leader at Facet. “I look forward to a great future with our new partner, because I know the opportunities for enhanced growth, productivity and collaboration are endless.”

This is Filtration Group’s second acquisition this year. Earlier this month, Filtration Group acquired Multisorb Technologies.
