R.P. Fedder Joins Rensa Filtration

September 7, 2023

Rochester, N.Y.— R.P. Fedder, a leading supplier and manufacturer of air filters and engineered air filtration solutions for some of the world’s largest companies, announced it has been acquired by Rensa Filtration. R.P. Fedder sees the partnership as critical to growing and expanding its filtration offering for its customers, as Rensa operates eight filter manufacturing sites across North America. Fedder engineers and manufactures customized air filters for OEM customers globally. Its manufacturing business will partner with Rensa’s Engineered Filtration Products business to increase its capabilities for customers in applications ranging from industrial to medical.

“The needs for air filtration are changing rapidly. Both the COVID pandemic and this season’s wildfires have highlighted the importance of air quality and its effects on our health and well-being,” said Brandon Ost, CEO of Rensa. “Rensa exists to provide truly innovative solutions to new and emerging challenges in filtration and R.P. Fedder’s history of innovation aligns with our goals. Together, we will continue to support our customers with innovative filtration solutions.”

Christopher Fox, president of R.P. Fedder, pointed to the benefits of the R.P. Fedder and Rensa union. “It has been difficult to compete with larger companies in this industry who have more purchasing power and the benefits of scale. Working with Rensa, we have already realized significant benefits in several categories, which will enable us to continue growing and supporting our local and global customers.

As a distributor of air filtration products and engineered solutions for education, healthcare and high tech manufacturing facilities in Upstate New York, R.P. Fedder will now provide Rensa filters in addition to filtration products and equipment from other leading companies.

“Rensa is led by people with deep knowledge of the filtration industry who have a desire to bring the newest technologies and manufacturing capabilities to our customers.  R.P. Fedder and Rensa products are engineered for better particle and aerosol capture efficiency and reduced energy and operating costs,” said Fox. “I look forward to our partnership.”

R.P. Fedder has filter manufacturing, distribution and engineering and technical support teams in Rochester. R.P. Fedder was founded in 1959 in a Rochester garage and has served Eastman Kodak, Xerox and many other companies and facilities during its 64-year history. Since Fox purchased the company in 2019, employment has increased 50 percent and Fedder and Rensa anticipate continued growth in the coming year as a result of the acquisition by Rensa.
