Velcon Filters, a manufacturer of industrial filtration systems, has acquired Warner Lewis.

Velcon manufactures filtration systems, primarily for the jet fuel market, including vessels and replacement cartridges, which meet specific requirements for fluid filtration processes in a variety of domestic and international end-markets.

Headquartered in Kelsterbach, Germany with locations in Phillipsburg, Germany; Farnborough, UK; Paris, France; and Dubai, UAE; Warner Lewis offers aircraft refueling solutions to customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Warner Lewis has been a business partner of Velcon for over 40 years distributing Velcon”s line of products, in addition to manufacturing its own standard or custom vessels, pit-boxes and ground fueling products. Velcon says the acquisition of Warner Lewis represents an opportunity for Velcon to directly serve customers in EMEA.

This is the third acquisition for Velcon in the past three years. Velcon acquired Chemflo in late 2009 to expand its product offering into the energy markets, and in 2010 acquired Twin Filter B.V. in the Netherlands to diversify and grow its business in the oil, liquid and air filtration markets.
