The Micronics Engineered Filtration Group has opened a new dedicated filter media facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA for liquid and dry filtration.

Located within the textile manufacturing hub of the United States, the new 56 000 sq ft manufacturing facility is focused on custom filtration solutions for customers’ filter press and baghouse needs.

Micronics’ filter cloth manufacturing operation, which was previously located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, has relocated to the new Chattanooga facility and includes an extensive inventory of rolled goods, several industry-leading laser cutters, welded HPR neck operations, edge sealing, and an experienced sewing staff.

Southern Filter Media, a wholly owned subsidiary of Micronics, has long-resided in nearby Hixson, Tennessee. The Southern Filter Media business has also relocated to the new Micronics Engineered Filtration Group facility.

“Micronics has been investing significantly over the years in increasing the production capacity of our filter media facilities in Tennessee and in Saltillo, Mexico to ensure that we have the ability to superbly support increased demand for our high-quality filtration products whether in the USA, Canada, Latin America, the UK, Europe, or other parts of the world,” said Bernie Faulkner, president and CEO of the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group.

Micronics’ new plant in Chattanooga complements the company’s existing manufacturing facilities in Dover, New Hampshire, USA; Saltillo, Mexico; and the UK.

The Micronics Engineered Filtration Group (Micronics Filtration Holdings Inc) includes Micronics Inc, Southern Filter Media LLC, CP Environmental LLC and United Process Control Inc, along with the AeroPulse brand of APC equipment.

Customer industries served by Micronics’ filter media products include mining & mineral processing, steel, power, cement, lime, asphalt, chemicals, surface/metal finishing, commercial laundry, food, pigments, frac sand and woodworking.
