A total solution
ICT FILTRACIÓN and GISTEA have signed an agreement to expand the close relationship they have built up over several years of accumulating experience of working together in the spheres of industrial filtration and technical cleaning for customers in different industries. This agreement offers the industrial sector a ground-breaking total solution in terms of products and services aimed at improving and maximising performance in industrial filtration facilities.
The combined capacities and expertise of the two companies allow broad cooperation on immediate and future projects, particularly in advice, hygienisation, cleaning and maintenance of filter installations, and in the manufacturing, supply and replacement of bags, cloths and high-technology ECO2efficient solutions for industrial filtration.
With this agreement, the companies are embarking on a line of joint work that will result in improved performance for installations and reduced energy consumption, control and elimination of risks and contaminating emissions, reduced product wastage in transit during production processes, greater occupational safety for people and less environmental impact for industrial activities.
The heads of the two firms see the agreement as a great opportunity which will allow current and future customers of both ICT FILTRACIÓN and GISTEA to benefit from the powerful synergy it generates. They both stress that the agreement means an exceptional chance to meet current market demands, including the concentration of suppliers and professional outsourcing, and to expand, deepen and improve their relations with customers.
The agreement is founded on the two companies’ compatible philosophies and the complementary nature of the products and services of certified quality supplied by them, as well as on the level of trust and prestige they enjoy on the market.
Specialists in highly demanding sectors
ICT FILTRACIÓN, the number one European manufacturer of filter bags, cloths and solutions, and GISTEA, an expert in hygienisation, technical cleaning, disinfection, pest control and maintenance services for industrial facilities, are aiming their new range of total solutions at a wide spectrum of industrial sectors. There is a special emphasis on those whose production systems call for maximum safety and efficiency, such as the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, among others, and environments rated as high-risk (confined spaces, explosive environments, work at height and so on). Protocols for action suited to each case and approvals and certifications of compliance with standards back up the plans and actions which form part of their services.
In this respect, and as an example of commitment and professionalism, companies in the food and pharmaceutical industries will see their demands met by a total supplier working to IFS standards and certified under ISO 22000 (food safety management system and hazard analysis and critical control points – HACCP).
An active role in Expoquímia
As part of Expoquímia, the international chemicals fair in Barcelona, both companies put their agreement into practice by sponsoring the technical conference “Filtration in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry”, where representatives of ICT FILTRACIÓN and GISTEA were among the speakers, giving a joint talk presenting a successful case study in the pharmaceutical sector (see case study).
