The Airepure Story
From its inception in 1998, Airepure Australia has been dedicated to providing effective, innovative and affordable filtration solutions throughout Australia.
The story began from a humble start where three friends and colleagues, Peter Wingfield, James (Jim) McIntosh & Roger Van Oosten decided that with over 40 years’ experience between them in the Filtration Industry that they would go it alone and sell Filtration solutions – and it began very modestly indeed with the 3 of them working initially from home.
Their respect in the industry was so highly regarded that in 1999, both Flanders Filters Inc and Purafil Inc of the USA supported them and their company by licencing them with their Australian distribution rights. This also gave Airepure access to some of the best Engineering resources in the USA, which assisted us in ensuring world class solutions, a position that is still ongoing. Some major Australian contractors also came on board in these early days as clients, and these clients are still major supporters and accounts of Airepure today.
The next milestone was in late 2000, where we moved out of the house & into premises in Toorak Road, Camberwell Victoria – probably the first real transition from their initial dream to the reality of a real business.
The company continued to grow, and in 2002 opened its’ first interstate branch in Sydney, NSW. The Victorian operation was also growing at a great rate so in June 2002, it relocated from Camberwell to a larger warehousing environment at our current site in Mulgrave.
In 2003 we gained ISO 9001 accreditation for the supply of air and gas phase filtration products; which include odour, dust and chemical control, bio-medical and hazardous containment housings and systems, and filter maintenance. We also introduced odour control systems to our product range.
2004 saw the introduction of PowerClean Systems, predominantly for Kitchen Exhaust solutions.
By 2005, we had opened two new branches in Adelaide and Brisbane, ensuring a truly national presence for Airepure.
2007 was a year of massive sales growth nationally, with a strengthening of our infrastructure and personnel in all areas of the business to ensure proper management of this growth. Four technical sales people were employed to help manage growth during this period.
2008 saw us open a branch in Canberra & employ an in-house Engineer in Melbourne. A strategic alliance was formed with Strobic USA in April 08 for distributing their products throughout Australia.
Many complex Waste Water solutions were completed in 2008 & 2009; some involving turnkey solutions with our business partners involving large projects in NSW, ACT and Victoria.
In 2011 Airepure was purchased by the ELTA Group (UK).
Another Airepure branch was opened in Perth in 2013.
Expansion within Airepure followed, including the establishment of dedicated national engineering resources for various specialty project areas, and the establishment of our own dedicated NATA accredited testing facility – Airepure Technical Services (ATS). Our ATS is a NATA accredited facility that complies with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005. To date we have NATA accredited sites based in Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, and several experienced NATA certified field service technicians who service clients nationally.
2015 saw the establishment of a new, larger Brisbane office and warehouse to support growth, and a doubling of size for our Sydney NSW offices and Warehouse.
2016 Airepure New Zealand was formed, making the Airepure range of products more accessible to our NZ clients. Airepure also expanded service offerings to clients in NSW through the acquisition of the JLJ services company.
In 2017, we welcomed FilterTech Australia to the growing Airepure Group. We also moved our Perth operation to larger premises to improve supply to the growing WA client base.
Airepure’s Technical Services team expanded into NSW in 2018 with the addition of two experienced NATA certified field service technicians. We also added a Product/Projects Engineer to our in-house Engineering team.
We celebrated 20 years of operation in December 2018, with an interactive web timeline that showcased some of our milestones.
2019 saw the relocation of the Adelaide branch to a larger, newly built office and warehouse located in Torrensville – complete with easy drive through product collection.
Airepure’s Technical Services team added an experienced HEPA testing technician in Melbourne and a junior tester to assist the Adelaide team. Airepure’s Sydney engineering team also welcomed a new project engineer.
Airepure was acquired by Camfil in March 2020. The Camfil Group is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, and has 33 manufacturing sites, six R&D centres, local sales offices in 30 countries, and 4,800 employees and growing.
