Supra win for Rochdale aeration company

Posted: Thursday 15th November 2012

An innovative Rochdale aeration company has scooped a prestigious business award.

Suprafilt, which is based on Albion Road Industrial Estate, won ‘Business of the Year at the Rochdale Business Awards 2012.

The company has tripled turnover in the last 12months and works with some of the UK’s major water companies and leading industrial organisations, such as Seven Trent Water, Thames Water and Diageo. It specialises in aeration technology, designs and manufactures energy efficient fine bubble diffused aeration solutions, and a range of stainless steel products including pipework and pressure vessels.

Graeme Fielden, Sales Director at Suprafilt, says: “We’re over the moon to be recognised as Business of the Year in our category. We’ve grown over 200 per cent in the last year alone, despite a recession, which is testament to the passion and commitment of our entire team.

“It’s a very exciting time for Suprafilt, we’re currently the UK’s market leader in supplying ‘Liftable Aeration Systems’ and we’re also the only company in the UK to offer Teflon PTFE coated and fEPDM membranes, which offer double the lifetime guarantee of competitor products and deliver long term energy savings.

“We have also increased our exports five fold on previous years and now supply pipework to Saudi Arabia, Algeria and South America.”

Suprafilt Limited specialises in the design, installation and commissioning of both fixed and lift-out fine-bubble diffused aeration systems for municipal and industrial sewage treatment plants. The company is committed to helping organisations improve their energy efficiencies and works in partnership with Universities, independent research institutions and technical and process experts to remain at the leading edge of technology in this field.

The company employs 16 people and is based on Albion Industrial Estate in Rochdale.
