Stocks in this article: KDN

Kaydon Corporation (NYSE: KDN) today announced the creation of the Kaydon Environmental Services Group, combining Purafil, Inc., a global leader in gas-phase filtration, and Kaydon Custom Filtration, a global leader in liquid filtration. This group will drive the future of filtration technologies and services within Kaydon under the leadership of James Mash, who will serve as President of the newly formed group, reporting to Gary Brewer, Kaydon Group Operations President.

The formation of the Environmental Services Group creates a unique, global environmental leader focused on providing quality solutions for both air and liquid applications. By merging Purafil’s focus on the dry-scrubbing of air and Kaydon Custom Filtration’s focus on liquid separation and filtration, the newly formed group will leverage the strengths of each business, combining the global resources of each company while broadening product offerings and providing full-service, custom solutions for customers.

James O’Leary, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Creating the Kaydon Environmental Services Group with the consolidation of Purafil, Inc. and Kaydon Custom Filtration will leverage over 100 years of combined knowledge and experience, strengthening our current world class brands and expanding our capabilities to meet customer needs. Under the leadership of Jim Mash and Gary Brewer, we will create a synergistic global business in an environmental services marketplace that fosters growth by adding new technologies, markets and products worldwide.”
