Camfil has signed an agreement to acquire Handte Umwelttechnik GmbH in Germany and Handte's operations in Switzerland, the Czech Republic, and China. The acquisition, pending approval from the authorities in Germany, is expected to close in the first quarter this year. Handte will be part of the Camfil Air Pollution Control business unit, which specializes in industrial dust and fume collection.

Handte is a German manufacturer and provider of environmental engineering products, filter technology processes, and air pollution control applications. With more than 120 years of experience, the company is a specialist in exhaust air purification for a wide range of manufacturing industries.

“Handte has a full line of dust collectors, mist collectors, and wet scrubbers that strategically complement the Farr Gold Series® cartridge dust collection line,” said Lee Morgan, Camfil APC president. “The integration of these product lines will broaden our portfolio and strengthen the company's industrial air pollution control offerings to customers in the U.S. and internationally.”

Key applications for these products include metalworking and machining, automotive, foundry, mining, and dry processing industries including chemical, food, and pharmaceutical.
