With effect from 1st March 2010 Contec® acquires and integrates Scherer Filterbau from Cologne

Contec® acquires and integrates Scherer Filterbau.

Scherer Filterbau, formerly Friedrich Scherer Filtergeräte, has been acquired and merged into Contec® GmbH (Bad Honnef). The company which has been established in 1973 and which is specialized in the construction and design of plastic filter housings now forms part of and was integrated into the Contec® GmbH organisationally.

Contec® GmbH hopes that the merger will result in a much stronger position in the market of chemicals and water treatment. Scherer Filterbau complements the product portfolio of Contec® with its expertise and competence in the construction of filter housings for the separation of solids out of acid liquids or as pre-filtration of reverse-osmosis systems. The existing market shares are expected to be secured and expanded. Current and future potential, above all in the sales of liquid and gas filter systems, is to be exploited.

Both companies have had a partnership for more than 20 years and have cooperated on numerous occasions and for several projects.
