Lydall buys Precision Filtration

Lydall Inc, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Lydall Performance Materials Inc, has acquired the Precision Filtration division of Precision Custom Coatings.

Based in Totowa, New Jersey, USA, Precision Filtration produces air filtration media principally serving the commercial and residential HVAC markets with MERV 7 – 11 products.

The addition of these products and capabilities enables Lydall to provide a full range of air filtration media from low efficiency MERV 7 through high-performing ULPA. Lydall says that the acquisition also enhances its flexibility in manufacturing, planning and logistics for new and existing customers.

The Precision Filtration business is expected to be fully integrated into Lydall by the end of 2018.

“We are extremely excited about the acquisition of the filtration business of Precision Custom Coatings as it coincides perfectly with our strategy of continuing to grow our product offering in the filtration space with high-quality products that are valued by our customers,” said Paul Marold, president of Lydall Performance Materials. “Precision Custom Coatings has developed excellent products while nurturing strong relationships with a customer base that is complementary to ours. This will lead to a seamless transition to Lydall Performance Materials.”
