Founded by Mr. Rasmus Petrus Erasmus and Coen Swart in 1982 FILREC (Pty) Ltd has grown to become one of the market leaders when it comes to the refurbishing of used air filters and the manufacturing of new and custom end-user filters in its segment of the market.
From humble beginnings out of only a garage, FILREC today employs more than 70 dedicated staff. After moving to No. 4 Basalt Street in 1984, the business in 2000 purchased its own state-of-the-art business premises at 24 Basalt Street in Alrode, Alberton.
During this period the company expanded at a rapid rate and still today serve some of its first corporate clients like Yskor Newcastle (now Mittal Steel) and SASOL in Secunda and Sasolburg. The company has also started a dust control and cartridge division and started manufacturing and servicing bags, dust control and cartridges for companies like Consol Glass, Nampak Glass and Impala Plats. More recently, FILREC has started a new division in the business that not only services filters but also build and maintain these dust control systems.
Between the air filters, small plant filters, specialist strainers, dust control filters, jacuzzi filters and Wap filters, including reconditioned filters Filrec produces between 6000 – 7000 units per month.
Not less than 25 tons of raw equipment gets imported from Europe each year from companies such as Hollingworth, Vose and Bosso Ahlstrom.
We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality goods and services to our clients and today via the use of agents and distribution networks we supply all 9 provinces of our country with the best filtering products available.
With continued innovation, superior quality products, sound financial management and a stable motivated workforce, FILREC will continue to grow from strength to strength.
