Avedon exits metallic filtration systems business Seebach to Smiths Group


Avedon Capital Partners has sold metallic filtration solutions firm Seebach to John Crane, a division of UK-based Smiths Group.

The Germany-based business is a supplier of filtration systems for critical applications, particularly in polymer and oil and gas markets.

Headquartered in Vellmar, the company employs 110 staff. It operates an additional production plant in Pune, India.

Avedon acquired Seebach in 2012, supporting the company as it transitioned from a small family-run operator to a business with a global reach.

Particularly in polymer, Seebach has brought innovative solutions to market and shown substantial growth in recent years.

“We are positive that with access to Smiths Group’s distribution network, Seebach is bound to realise its untapped potential,” said Avedon partner Hannes Hinteregger.
