History seen through our filters
TP-Filter was started by Hans Erkers in 1986. Initially, our focus was on dealing in filter hoses for dust filtration and cut roll goods products for component manufacture, and also disc-filter bags for the paper industry (with production outsourced to a subcontractor). Much exciting and revolutionary development has taken place both in the company and in the world around us since then. TP-Filter has remained strong in face of all these challenges — a self-financed company that has always earned profits.
