Swift Filters Inc. recently acquired JB Services International Inc., a Houston-based manufacturer of high-pressure filter housings sold to the oil and gas, chemical processing, automotive manufacturing and other markets.
The purchase marks the entry of Swift Filters into the filter housing manufacturing business.
"JB Services was well-known to us as a high-quality manufacturer of critical high-pressure housings," stated Ned Swift, president of Swift Filters. "For the last six years, we have been the exclusive supplier of all high-pressure stainless-steel metal filter elements for JB's filter housings. Both JB and Swift had been looking for opportunities to expand product lines and improve operational efficiencies to meet the growing demands of our customer bases. This merger will help us achieve these goals."
JB Services International is now part of a newly created division of Swift Filters — Swift-JB International LLC — with new offices in Houston.
Swift-JB's T-Type high-pressure filter assemblies have been used in the extreme environments of the offshore oil/subsea industry for more than 25 years. In addition to oil and gas applications, the filter assemblies are also compatible with high-temperature fluids, highly viscous fluids, corrosive fluids, foods, drugs, beverages and gases.
