Filter Resources Inc is a distributor of process filtration products for the downstream oil & gas, petrochemical and specialty chemical markets, offering a range of liquid and air process filtration solutions. The company operates from locations in Lake Charles, Louisiana and Pasadena, Texas and was previously part of the Parker Industrial Process Filtration Division.

“We are thrilled to welcome the talented associates of Filter Resources to the MCE family,” said Charles Hale, chairman & CEO of MCE. “By combining our resources and expertise, this acquisition positions the combined business to accelerate growth and provide an even more comprehensive suite of highly-engineered solutions to our valued customers."

The company will retain the Filter Resources brand name and will operate from its two existing locations. The FR team will continue to be led by Sidney Mondin, who will have expanded responsibilities as general manager of MCE’s newly formed Filtration business unit.

“We are pleased that Filter Resources is becoming a part of MCE, an established Parker channel partner with excellent distribution capabilities,” said Steve Howard, general manager of Parker’s Industrial Process Filtration Division. “This is a strategic transaction that furthers the growth opportunities for both businesses.”

Founded in 1951, MCE is a supplier of technical fluid power, automation, flow control, compressed air products, service, and repair solutions. The company serves more than 25,000 OEM and end-user customers from 46 facilities located in 14 states.
