Filtration Group Consolidates HVAC Filter Manufacturing

Filtration Group, Joliet, Ill., has
combined its three East Coast heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) filter manufacturing
operations at one location in a new 235,000-square-foot production facility in York, S.C. The
company previously operated facilities in Delaware, North Carolina and York.

“Having our entire East Coast operations in York is going to improve the speed of delivery,”
said Dave Flynn, director of manufacturing. “Orders can be shipped directly to the customer,
without passing through another distribution point, saving Filtration Group and our customers not
only time, but money.”

The company has added 35 new employees in York and plans eventually to hire 75 to 100
additional people, according to Larry Ost, CEO.
