Croft in big link up with Czech firm

WARRINGTON-based filter specialist Croft Filters has teamed up with Czech Republic metal experts Technotron-Metal to introduce an innovative new manufacturing process.

The partnership will allow Croft to utilise Technotron’s range of expanded metals to offer its customers cost-effective, high quality solutions, while also significantly reducing the amount of material used when creating bespoke products to suit exact applications.
Croft worked with the CzechTrade Agency to facilitate the partnership with the manufacturer of expanding metal, and has since been confirmed as the sole UK distributor of its products, which include perforated sheets and steel gratings.

Croft’s collaboration with Technotron will further bolster its in-house services, in addition to its portfolio of expert partners, which includes Heco-Filters.
Croft  director Neil Burns said: “Joining forces with Technotron-Metal has enabled us to offer businesses a wider range of products and services, while also addressing the European-wide demand for expanded metal products.

“By sharing our in-house expertise, both companies can provide a comprehensive service to customers and source new solutions to meet complex design requirements.

“As well as demonstrating Croft’s commitment to understanding our customers’ needs, this partnership highlights the importance of investment in our team’s knowledge of filters and the future of the industry.”

Tomas Mischinger, managing director aof Technotron-Metal, added: “There is a huge potential for expanded metal products in the European market so we’re looking forward to working with Croft and making the most of the team’s expertise and in-depth experience in the industry.”
