Maximum filtration efficiency
…thanks to “kindness, knowledge and know-how”, cornerstones of a leader Company
2017 got off to a good start for Filtrec, a Company producing filter elements and complete filters for hydraulic and lubrication systems as well as industrial and process filters: January in fact marked the opening of a modern and efficient factory in Telgate, with offices, production and logistics facilities covering an area of 10 thousand sqm. And here, in this state-of-the-art centre, we are welcomed by the markeing manager Angelo Furlanetto: “The Telgate centre is a bit like to be back at home for Filtrec, founded in 1991 by the Modina brothers and by the shareholders of Fluidomatic. And so from its former location in Cazzago San Martino it has gone back to where it started, having rapidly expanded in the meantime and with a turnover increasing from 8 million in 2006 to the consolidated one of 30 million in the 2016, with an export share of practically 90% ”. The following milestones contributed towards such a whirlwind growth: the growing importance of good filter elements due to the continuous evolution of hydraulics, product range diversification and opening of branches abroad. But let us go by the right order.
As Furlanetto explains: “Three lines of products were progressively developed: first of all replacement elements for hydraulics, our core business during the 90’s. In that period the name of Filtrec became renowned as manufacturer of excellent filter elements, whilst the other two complementary product divisions were developed more recently, one dedicated to hydraulic filters and the other to filters for application in the oil&gas, energy and petrolchemical sectors”. An all-round expansion therefore for a Company, founded by the Modina family who has been capable to lead it by building a tight knit team of enthusiast and qualified managers.
