Filtermist International aquires DCS Group

Air filtration and extraction specialist Filtermist International has successfully completed its largest ever acquisition with the £6.6 million purchase of Yorkshire-based DCS Group.

Filtermist International, which is part of the Absolent Group, believes the deal will provide the group with the opportunity to increase its global presence in key sectors, including pharmaceutical and woodworking.

It is the latest in a series of recent acquisitions that have included dust filtration systems manufacturer, Dustcheck, and customised air movement and air pollution control system specialist, Multi-Fan Systems.

James Stansfield, chief executive of Filtermist International, said: “This latest deal is designed to significantly enhance Absolent Group’s presence in the dust and fume extraction market.

“We have extremely ambitious targets over the next five years and increasing our presence in all of our market sectors is a key strategic objective. We will be combining the strengths of our companies to offer our customers a complete solution for air extraction and filtration.”

He continued: “Traditionally, Filtermist has been known for its oil mist extraction capabilities. The acquisitions we have made so far mean that as a company we are now able to offer dust and fume extraction, VOC abatement, odour control, solvent recovery and more.”

DCS Group, which had a consolidated turnover of £11.4 million during 2018, collectively acts as a designer, supplier, installer and commissioner of fume and dust extraction systems. It consists of a number of specialist enterprises including DCS Limited and Cades Limited, with both brands enjoying established reputations for providing quality dust extraction systems for customers in a number of industries, including pharmaceutical and woodworking.

The DCS business assets also include Ecogate Limited and Gallito Limited, which between them manufacture a range of industry-associated products, such as FastClip ducting and microprocessor-controlled extraction optimisation systems designed to improve extraction efficiency. 

Bringing these products into the Absolent Group provides an opportunity to expand the brands’ presence into overseas markets, utilising an established global distributor and subsidiary network.
