Soon many of us will raise a glass, kiss a loved one and begin making goals for the new year. Perhaps you’ll even enjoy a delicious fried treat, like calamari or crispy wings. Before we leap into a new decade, let’s pause a moment to reflect on our accomplishments from 2019.
Launched Pleated Filter
In February, our Filtercorp team kicked off 2019 with the launch of a new and improved pleated SuperSorb® CarbonPad at the NAFEM Show (North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers) in Chicago. The show had record numbers of attendees and exhibitors, making it an incredible opportunity to showcase our new pleated filter. This new technology works like two filters in one, trapping larger food debris in the top layer and smaller microns in the second layer. The result is a new standard in cleaner, longer lasting oil.
Achieved BPI Certification
A few months later, we announced that Filtercorp had received BPI Certification, certifying that our SuperSorb® CarbonPad is a fully compostable product. Our customers and end users value this environmentally friendly feature and can feel better about using our premium disposable filters because of this new certification. We took this news on the road to the NRA Show in May. This was Filtercorp’s first time exhibiting at the NRA show in 15 years! We took our exhibitor space to the next level with a hands-on demonstration of filter replacements.
Introduced SuperSorb® Envelope
We finished 2019 with a bang, introducing our latest generation of SuperSorb® filters – the SuperSorb® Envelope! This revolutionary product opens the door to superior oil filtration for foodservice operators using fryers that require envelope-style filters. We debuted this product at our fall trade shows – the Burger King National Convention in Miami Beach, Florida, and HostMilano in Italy.
Filtercorp had an incredible 2019, thanks to the hard work and dedication of our skilled associates. We truly value our customers and industry partners. Thank you to all of those who played a role in our 2019 successes. We look forward to another year of continued product innovation. Cheers to 2020!
