amafilter

In the 1930’s Mr. L. Benjamins started a company in the Netherlands which sold filtration consumables and parts. After WW2 Mr. L. Benjamins and his son started importing and not much later the manufacturing of “Niagara filters” branded as “Amsterdamse Machine- en Apparatenfabriek” (amafilter®). The main products were vertical pressure blades for the food & beverage industry. Soon after amafilter started exporting it’s products worldwide. Due to rapid growth amafilter® moved from Amsterdam to Alkmaar. The new location in Alkmaar expanded multiple times to offer more production capacity. In those years many filter types were developed. Many filters were added to the amafilter scope of products. The amafilter® brand is a well established name in the global market for solid-liquid filtration serving customers worldwide.
