Our History

Septek Filter started in 1990 with Thomas Burénius in his basement.

Our roots trace back to the late 1960s, where our journey started with woolen and worsted spinning. This early phase laid the groundwork for our expertise in fiber, yarn, and filtration media. Over time, we honed our skills and knowledge, delving into filtration fabric technology and early development of e-PTFE membrane filtration technology.

In 1990, Thomas Burénius, having previously worked at P&S Filtration and Gore, kickstarted what would become Septek Filter,  from his basement in Mölnlycke, Sweden. At the beginning, he sourced filter press cloths from international manufacturers and supplied them to clients across the Nordic countries.

Fast forward to 2001, we moved into a new facility, a step that allowed us to take full control of our production. This shift was crucial to ensuring the high-quality of our products for wet filtration. After a few years, we acquired a laser cutter, enabling us to cut 3.5 * 5 meter cloths.

Fabian Burénius takes over as the company’s new CEO in 2018.

In 2018, a new era dawned as Fabian Burénius took over as our CEO. With fresh perspectives, we continued our journey, building on our foundation of innovation and customer commitment.

From our humble beginnings, we’ve expanded into global markets and diverse fields of filtration. As we look ahead, we invite you to join us on our journey in delivering high-quality filtration solutions.
