Munktell Filter To Open Office In Raleigh

March 2, 2009

Expansion is a win for WCED.

Ken Atkins, executive director for Wake County Economic Development, has announced that Munktell Filter AB, a Swedish-based paper filtration company, has opened its first North American sales and distribution office in Raleigh, NC at Brier Creek.  From its new Raleigh location, Munktell plans to aggressively grow its client base throughout the U.S.  Projected to open this spring, the Raleigh operation will consist initially of a small sales and distribution office with plans to expand operations as its marketshare grows. 

The Munktell Group, based in Falun, Sweden, is one of the world’s leading companies specializing in filtration and separation technologies and is the first producer of filter paper for analytical purposes.  The company specializes in filtration and separation technology for laboratory, industrial and environmental markets, air filter media, medical filtration technology and archival storage products.  Munktell has production sites and sales offices in Sweden and Germany.

Wayne Watkins, WCED project manager, has worked with Munktell on the expansion since August 2008.
