Who We Are
Filtrex Technologies started life as a family business. The belief of its founders was that top quality, eco-friendly water filters could have a very positive impact on the quality of people’s lives world-wide and should be accessible and affordable for all. This belief drove Research and Development, with special focus into novel ways of manufacturing and processing activated carbon made from renewable raw materials. Soon Filtrex Technologies was at the leading edge of the manufacture of activated carbon from coconut shells. The company sited its manufacturing facilities close to some of the largest coconut plantations in the world and employed some of the brightest scientific minds to catalyse innovation.
Today, Filtrex Technologies is part of the Marmon Group, a Berkshire Hathaway company, which counts among its global water treatment brands such household names as EcoWater and KX Technologies. Joining this select family of cutting edge water treatment businesses has enabled Filtrex to broaden its horizons and its scope of development, and bring its technologies to new markets. However, Filtrex Technologies remains a family business at heart: innovation through Research and Development and personalised customer service remain central to our company ethos.
