CHATTANOOGA, TN – May 16, 2019 – The Micronics Engineered Filtration Group is pleased to announce the opening of a dedicated new filtration media facility in Chattanooga, TN. The facility, nestled within the textile manufacturing hub of the United States, is dedicated to high-quality liquid and dry filtration filter media products. It is located at 1201 Riverfront Parkway, right in the heart of Chattanooga.
The new Micronics plant is a 56,000 square foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that employs a customer-centric, quality-oriented, full-time workforce focused on custom filtration solutions for our customers’ filter press and baghouse needs. We utilize a full complement of woven filter fabrics and non-woven felted fabrics, depending upon the customers’ application needs. Diverse customer industries served by Micronics’ filter media products include mining & mineral processing, steel, power, cement, lime, asphalt, chemicals, surface/metal finishing, commercial laundry, food, pigments, frac sand, woodworking, and more.
“Micronics is committed to being the best filtration supplier in the industry across every dimension of service. Our new facility in Chattanooga will firmly support this commitment, strengthening Micronics’ ability to consistently exceed customer expectations and minimizing lead times for orders of our high-quality filter press cloth on the liquid filtration side and high-quality filter bags on the dry filtration side,” according to Bernie Faulkner, President and CEO of the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group.
“Micronics has been investing significantly over the years in increasing the production capacity of our filter media facilities in Tennessee and in Saltillo, Mexico to ensure that we have the ability to superbly support increased demand for our high-quality filtration products whether in the USA, Canada, Latin America, the UK, Europe, or other parts of the world,” Mr. Faulkner added.
“Our increased high-quality filter bag production capacity, both in traditional and developing media technologies – combined with our unparalleled service capabilities – allows Micronics to provide customers with customized engineered filtration solutions to meet their growing needs. As an organization, we are excited at the opportunity to exceed our customers’ expectations and look forward to introducing more customers to the tailored engineered filtration solutions that Micronics offers,” stated Jason Wettstaedt, Senior Vice President of Dry Filtration for the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group.
Southern Filter Media, a wholly owned subsidiary of Micronics, has long-resided in nearby Hixson, TN. The Southern Filter Media business has relocated to the new Micronics Engineered Filtration Group facility on the riverfront and includes an extensive inventory of rolled materials and state-of-the-art equipment including automated tubing lines and long-arm sewing machines.
Micronics’ filter cloth manufacturing operation – which was previously located in Portsmouth, NH – has relocated to the new Chattanooga facility and includes an extensive inventory of rolled goods, several industry-leading laser cutters, welded “HPR” neck operations, edge sealing, and an experienced sewing staff.
Our liquid and dry filtration media operations benefit from a full cadre of experienced sewers and textile experts to meet our customers’ exacting filtration media needs. Micronics’ new manufacturing plant in Chattanooga complements Micronics’ existing manufacturing facilities in Dover, NH, Saltillo, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.
