ABOUT FAUDI

A globally positioned company
of filtration and separation since 1938.

About us: Innovative Technology
Made in Germany

Since FAUDI was founded in 1938 by Fritz Faudi, the company has always stood for innovative filtration and separation technology. Today, FAUDI GmbH with its two product ranges, Coolant (coolant processing) and Process (treatment of process liquids and gases or process filtration), is a guarantee for high-quality plant and system construction Made in Germany – and of course, all international approvals and certificates are fully considered.

FAUDI is committed to Germany as their location. Our central Hessian headquarters in Stadtallendorf is the focus of project planning, engineering, manufacture, service and marketing all geared to provide our customers with the best solutions from a single source. Our representatives in all of the most important parts of the world make it possible to provide service to our customers locally in a timely manner.

We offer practical filtration solutions for a broad range of applications. Our products and services help you to comply with legal regulations, improve performance and at the same time reduce your operating costs. This is because at FAUDI, when we talk about quality, we go far beyond the categories of long service life and trouble-free operation: “Total cost of ownership” (TCO) is an important measure our engineers apply for their development work.

FAUDI relies on the use of their patented filter systems without filter aids. This results in fewer residual materials, which is not only economical, but also serves to protect the environment and our planet. The system’s processes are fully automatic, thereby assisting and simplifying the workflow. The high-quality components used exclusively in the product design are essential reasons why FAUDI equipment is so durable and reliable. We are pleased to support you in reaching your goals.

FAUDI receives the largest single order in the company history

FAUDI GmbH has been awarded the contract by the well-known Southern German car manufacturer for the supply and installation of the complete filter technology for the production of its gasoline and diesel engine production. On an area of approx. 50 hectares, the car manufacturer invested around 500 million euros in a new high-tech engine plant in Jawor, Poland. With a project volume of around 15 million euros, this order brings FAUDI the largest single order in its 80-year company history.

70th anniversary of FAUDI GmbH

The new module filter system as well as the backflush filter which set new quality standards were introduced in the Process division in the last few years. In the Coolant segment, FAUDI recently presented the new screw and briquetting presses as well as the rod magnetic separator. 120,000 FAUDI filters and filter systems on five continents speak for themselves! FAUDI keeps operations running in a diverse array of industry sectors and is looking forward to the next 70 years.

2005/06
Acquisition of Faudi GmbH by Watz Hydraulik GmbH

In spite of high-quality products and remarkable innovative drive, the changing global economic situation at the start of the new millennium and decision-making errors by the management at the time led to the initiation of insolvency proceedings in 2006. After acquisition by WATZ Hydraulik GmbH, it was possible to preserve nearly all of the jobs at the Stadtallendorf location and growth was attained once again by 2006.

Relocation to Stadtallendorf

The consolidation of corporate functions at the Stadtallendorf location took place in 1997. Shorter communication paths, concentrated know-how and a new centre for research and development all facilitated increased productivity. A total of 16 million German marks were invested at this site in a new production facility and a unique type of research and development center.

FAUDI Feinbau GmbH acquired Atlantik Gerätebau GmbH

The acquisition of Atlantik Gerätebau GmbH in Stadtallendorf, which thereby established the current company headquarters, was an important step for FAUDI – as the vessels made by Atlantik GmbH are a perfect complement to the manufacture of filters in the FAUDI GmbH Process area.

Fritz Faudi founded FAUDI Feinbau GmbH, Oberursel

Since 1937, Fritz Faudi had already had a licence from the French filter manufacturer, Rellumit. Faudi soon came to the conclusion that the filters being marketed under the licence were in need of improvement. Because he needed his own production facility, he founded FAUDI Feinbau GmbH together with his wife, Margot, in 1938, thereby laying the corner stone for the company as it is today.

Improvement through change:
