“The acquisition will help strengthen Camfil’s position as a global leader in air filtration, offering innovative clean air solutions, which will benefit our customers across the industry in Australia and New Zealand,” says the company. “Airepure’s addition to the Camfil Group will create a solid foundation for further growth in Australia and serving our customers with world-class filtration solutions.”
Airepure Australia is a leading name in the national air filtration industry, providing solutions ranging from basic HVAC filtration to HEPA/ULPA filtration, airborne containment technologies, along with NATA testing services.
Airepure has been part of Elta Group, UK since 2011. It has offices and agents in Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane, Townsville, Adelaide, Perth and Hobart and more than 70 employees working in its Melbourne HQ.
“Airepure has a strong offering to customers, and is a well-run operation, with strong capabilities in key areas like testing services, R&D, engineering and customer service,” says Alan O’Connell, President Asia Pacific at Camfil Group. “We look forward to joining forces with their team of talented and competent people.”
“The Airepure team welcome this acquisition and the opportunity to combine the best of Airepure and Camfil’s people, products and custom-engineered solutions to provide quality, purpose-built clean air solutions for the Australian market,” says Airepure CEO Roger Van Oosten. “Both businesses complement each other, and we look forward to embracing the wealth of opportunity ahead.”
Camfil says that market analysts are projecting increases in indoor air pollution levels and rising cases of health issues related to airborne allergens across Australia. It points to a CSIRO study that put the cost of poor indoor air quality in Australia at $12bn per year.
“Together, Airepure and Camfil will continue to provide its solution to specialised applications with the need for superior HVAC filtration, molecular contamination and air pollution control solutions that contributes in improving worker and equipment productivity, benefits human health and environment and minimises energy consumption,” says Camfil.
