Major acquires Filtaire Products

We are pleased to announce effective 30 January 2015, that the Major Engineering Group has acquired the business, assets and intellectual property of Filtaire Products. Filtaire Products was founded 31 years ago and is a leader in the industrial air pollution and dust control fields in Australia. Filtaire Products has a wide range of products suitable for air pollution and dust control with more than 3500 installations in Australia and overseas.

Major sees great synergies between the two businesses and the addition of Filtaire Products not only enables Major to offer additional equipment to existing customers such as metal products processors, food processors, incinerator operators and crematoriums but opens new fields in bulk materials handling dust control, a sector in which Filtaire Products is strong.

Key staff from Filtaire Products have joined Major and have transitioned to the larger site in Clayton, Victoria. The Major facility is well suited to the design and manufacture of filtration equipment with over 4200m2 of heavy manufacturing area and 40 ton lifting capacity.

It is an exciting time for both Major and Filtaire, the combined business will be able to support a wider range of clients for their engineering and on-going support requirements.
