Clean air with Nederman solutions for industrial air filtration

Nederman acquires Auburn FilterSense LLC, a leading provider of particulate monitors and filter control solutions.

Auburn FilterSense LLC holds several decades of experience and application knowledge from more than 75,000 units and installations sold, bringing technology and support to help customers worldwide reduce emissions and improve operations. The company manufactures continuous particulate monitors incorporating triboelectric and charge induction particulate sensing technologies, intelligent controls, including real-time diagnostics and software for filter leak detectors, for process control, maintenance planning, regulatory compliance and increased production efficiency.  

The acquisition price on a cash and debt free basis, amounting to approximately USD 5.75 million, will be paid on completion of the acquisition which is expected to be in early April 2018, with a potential maximum earn-out payment of USD 2.5 million based on profitability for 2018 and 2019, and is funded by a combination of cash and existing bank facilities.

Auburn FilterSense LLC, with approximately 30 employees, had a turnover in 2017 of USD 6.2 million. The acquired business has an EBITDA margin in line with that of the Nederman Group and is expected to have a positive impact on earnings per share from the date of acquisition completion.

Auburn FilterSense LLC will be part of Nederman’s Insight organization. The Auburn FilterSense LLC brand and team will continue to operate as before and the solutions will become an integrated part of the Nederman Insight application and digital ecosystem, building on connectivity and Internet of Things.
