Independent UK distributor of air filters, filtration equipment and fan belts for over 30 years

In August of 1985 Midland Filtration Limited was launched by Richard Johnson who remains our Managing Director to this day. Richard already had over 10 years experience in the filter and distribution trade when he founded the company, and foresaw the need for a filter distribution company to serve the Midlands area. Although such specialisation was a complete novelty in those days, time has proved that it was the correct decision, and today Midland Filtration has grown in turnover and reputation to become the premier air filter distributorship in the UK.

Now, with customers ranging from Single Traders to Blue Chip PLC’s, and a thriving depot in Scotland, the original ideology of Midland Filtration remains unchanged. Whatever we do, we are a service company first and last, always putting the needs of our customers before all else. Whether we are gaining ISO recognition at the first attempt, underwriting intricate filter specifications, carrying out duct cleaning or filter distribution we will always try to do everything the same way:

simply the best we know how

Our products are the finest available. We hold distributorships with several key manufacturers, and our service has always been unquestionably second to none. Teamed with competitive pricing and a user-friendly and positive attitude from all our staff, we feel that we have exactly the right mix of experience and enthusiasm to tailor our services and filter distribution to your exacting needs:

every client is different

As an independent distributor with a huge buying power, Midland Filtration are not tied to any one manufacturer. If we can’t meet an order from our vast stocks, then we can source extremely quickly from one of our approved suppliers. As one of our clients once said when giving our name as a referral: “If Midland Filtration can’t get it, then don’t bother looking elsewhere – it can’t be got!” A wonderful plaudit to earn, and one we aim to keep.

Why use Midland Filtration?


We cover the whole of the UK distributing a whole range of specific and general filter product ranges and belts from our branches in Nottingham and Glasgow.


Experience has shown us that customers value a single delivery and carriage charge rather than two separate ones for the site to lose, and accounts to pay for! Eliminating an extra delivery also helps to reduce your carbon footprint – an increasingly important consideration in these more environmentally aware times.


We keep stock of standard items at all times to ensure prompt dispatch for our customers. For regularly used non-standards we are happy to hold stock against your call-off.


We manufacture non-standard pleated and glass panels and media pads in-house, which ensures a much speedier turnaround than most filter manufacturers can offer.


We have for many years operated a database on behalf of various clients with full filter and belt details for each site. Your engineers can then ring and ask for a price or call off the requirements for a site without having to obtain full listings for us each time – always a popular facility with hard-pressed engineers.


Our highly experienced technical team are there to provide advice and assistance when needed. We often meet with customers on site either to carry out a survey of requirements or to suggest upgrades or conversions. Our technical support and site visits are free of charge and carried out at your request. Where needed our trained engineers can also install the package for you – please ask for a quotation.


Over the years we have gained accreditation to ISO9001, ISO14001, OHSAS18001, Investors in People, Constructionline, SafeContractor and Registered Carriers of Waste – more proof if needed that we are a quality service company which takes its responsibilities seriously.


Top of our list when dealing with our suppliers is finding someone helpful and friendly at the other end of the phone who does what they promise, and gets back to us when they say they will. It was natural then to have this philosophy as the cornerstone of our own organisation, to ensure that we always live up to our word and never lose sight of the fact that you, the clients, are our business. Proof of this ethic is our coveted Diamond Award in Customer Service independently assessed for our ongoing ISO9001 accreditation – the ultimate plaudit from our customers. Thank you to every one who took part!
