RoboVent Acquired by Air Filtration Holdings, LLC

RoboVent has been acquired by Air Filtration Holdings (AFH). According to Managing Director Jim Reid, RoboVent had been approached for acquisition several times over the years. However, the possibility of selling the company only became a genuine possibility when ownership met AFH CEO Brandon Ost and his team.

"When they described their vision for AFH, we knew this was something we wanted to be part of," Reid said. "The merging of RoboVent's innovative technologies with AFH's depth of filtration and business experience will create a world leader in filtration and provide RoboVent additional resources to support its continued growth."

Reid continued, "The RoboVent flag still flies, and with the financial backing and a deeper breadth of knowledge now available to us through AFH, we are gearing up to become a more formidable force in the air filtration industry."

"We intend to acquire and invest in the most innovative, forward-thinking businesses in the air filtration industry," said Ost. "RoboVent's focus on sustainability and dedication to customer-centric solutions is aligned with our mission to deliver best-in-class solutions that keep environments safe and industries thriving."

Ost also explained the RoboVent will serve as a flagship company in this industry family of businesses that will help attract other air filtration companies that have the vision and the technology to transform the industry. AFH recently acquired Maryland-based Viskon-Aire, a manufacturer of air filtration products, and Illinois-based Permatron, a provider of custom, technology-driven air filtration solutions with over 60 years of experience.

"Founded in 1989, RoboVent has established itself in the field of air filtration solutions with efficient, reliable and cost-effective systems installed at major manufacturing operations across North America," said a company spokesperson. RoboVent designs and manufactures air filtration solutions for welding; metalcutting; dust and lubricant mist collection; and general ventilation.

Headquartered in Sterling Heights, MI, RoboVent has sales and service centers located throughout North America. In 2014, the same year that RoboVent celebrated its 25th anniversary, it was named one of Inc. 5000 America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies.
