Achieving a healthy living environment. Optimum IAQ (indoor air quality) improves performance and brings out the best in people.
For a start, the worldwide issue of excessive energy consumption can be reduced through the use of our filters. Savings of 50% of the energy consumption of the air treatment are not unknown to us. So simple, so efficient.
Air treatment and quality of life go hand-in-hand. Let us take them to a higher level. Clean air provided by AFPRO Filters!
From the start, we have worked together, shoulder-to-shoulder, on the result. AFPRO-AFPRO is averse to hierarchical structures and requires a ‘roll up the sleeves’ mentality from everyone. All our department managers are involved in the activities being performed by their teams every day. On the other hand, open communication is expected from the team. That is how we can identify any problems quickly and solve them effectively. That is essential in every organisation, but certainly in a fast-growing organisation like ours.
The management team has daily contact with the production floor and attaches great value to making use of individual competences. In the context of “the numbers tell the tale”, management is based on behaviour and result.
At AFPRO, trust and reflection are the basis of functioning. The process owner is free to achieve his objective the way he sees fit. At moments of provisional reflection, possible learning opportunities are put to use. We also attach great importance to personal development; at AFPRO, personal development paths are made to measure.
This very Dutch company has its origins in Alkmaar. Managing director Karel Bosschieter founded ACS Filtertechniek B.V. in 1979 after a short career with an English company.
ACS Filtertechniek B.V. started with the trade in air filters. In the early period, products were purchased on order and sold. After a few years, the step was taken to produce filters ourselves. Over the years, AFPRO Filtertechniek B.V. has expanded into an experienced and expert partner in air filtration.

Enterprising & innovative
AFPRO identifies opportunities in the market and turns them into innovative products. This entrepreneurship made AFPRO decide to shift part of its production to China. It’s how we can keep the costs down and guarantee quality and quantity.
Shortly after ACS Filtertechniek B.V. was founded, the Belgian branch was also opened. The name ACS Filtertechniek B.V. was registered in the Benelux countries and with the development of the first laboratory we made a start on active product development on a daily basis. The Dutch laboratory was recently renovated and equipped with the latest technology so we can offer the widest possible range of research. You can also come to our research department for a unique energy calculation of your air treatment.
The ISO, TUV and Eurovent certification shows that AFPRO is a solid and reliable partner who works according to the highest international standards. That is why we feel very strongly about quality of product and management at our company.
The current production lines date from the period 2005-2007. By shifting the bulk production to Asia and keeping the special production in Europe, we have strengthened our competitive position considerably. AFPRO Filters recently also acquired its own international distribution centre.
