Bill Flaherty, Vice President – Professional Tools for Cooper Tools has announced Cooper Industries has purchased the Swedish company Filtronic AB and the company will now be a part of the Cooper Tools division.
Filtronic AB is known around the world for their fume extraction equipment for soldering, adhesives, solvents and more. Advances in fume extractor technology are becoming more important as additional emphasis is placed on air pollution control and a healthy work environment.
The company was founded in 1993 on the idea to create portable filter systems to protect workers from potentially dangerous gases, fumes, dust, etc…Filtronic AB currently has distributors in Asia, Australia, Europe and North America but all the company’s development and production is done in Lidkoping, Sweden.
The combination of Cooper’s success with Weller soldering and fume extraction equipment plus Filtronic’s expertise in fume extraction means better products for customers.
