Already providing a variety of web processing technology for plastics, paper, and nonwoven production, Parkinson Technologies has merged with its long-term working partner, the extrusion melt-filtration specialist, Key Filters.

There will be almost no relocation resulting from this merger. All of Key Filters people are staying on board, plus the two companies have shared the same building in Woonsocket, RI for several years, and common ownership since 1993.

The well-known lines of manual, hydraulic, and continuous screen changers that have carried the Key Filters brand will continue to do so, but within a Parkinson Technologies family that encompasses Parkinson winders, Dusenbery converting systems, and Marshall & Williams biaxial orientation production lines, in addition to the Key Filters products.

Pete Termyn, Parkinson’s president and CEO, noted that the combination of strengths and product offerings in this merger would enable both companies to better serve customers. Key Filters business manager John Whaley agreed, saying customers would benefit from the combined efficiencies, adding that, “The transition will be seamless in the eyes of our customers.”
