Amazon Filters was founded in 1985 by Mike Pizzey, an engineer with nearly 20 years previous filtration experience, primarily with liquid filters used in chemical process systems.
Drawing on Mike’s wide experience of liquid filters and applications, Amazon was able to grow rapidly in its early years, bringing in experienced staff and moving to its own premises within its first three years of operation.
Amazon launched its first own manufactured housing range in 1986. This product has evolved into the present day 61 Series and is still one of our most popular lines. This was followed by a rapid expansion of Amazon designed and manufactured filter housings, fuelled by demand for these high quality, well-engineered products from both end-users and other filter companies.
Today, Amazon is proud of its reputation for supplying one of the largest ranges of filter housings available on the market, with quality, delivery and customisation to the fore, along with our renowned attention to detail.
Over the years, Amazon has continued to expand in terms of turnover, facilities, people and market share. We have established ourselves as a major presence in the UK filtration market and, in association with our distribution partners, Amazon Filters services customers worldwide. In 2008 Amazon Filters purchased the business activities of the German company L & Z Verfahrenstechnik GmbH which led to the formation of Amazon Filters GmbH. There were tremendous synergies between the two organisations and this has resulted in Amazon Filters having a significant and successful operation in Germany.
In 2014 Amazon Filters acquired the manufacturing, operational and development assets in addition to the intellectual property rights of Secura Nova’s filtration business in Warsaw, Poland. The business was re-named as Amazon Filters Sp.z o.o and operate as a wholly owned subsidiary company
We continue to achieve significant annual growth and are proud that we have been profitable throughout our existence.
We have improved our facilities and production capacity dramatically year on year. Our investments include introducing clean room cartridge assembly areas for Microfiltration products, opening an extensive new warehouse and office facilities, a major extension and upgrade of the production area and improvements to our test and technical facilities.
Our plans for the future are clear: we intend Amazon to be recognised worldwide as a name synonymous with high quality, well engineered solutions to filtration problems. We are committed to achieving this aim, and we strive for excellence in the key areas of product quality and performance, Customer Service, delivery and application knowledge to help us achieve these goals.
