This experience is available to all CFS customers to help resolve problems or improve filtration for you.
Our experience includes taking a training project at HMS Sultan through to supplying filtration to every warship in the British Navy, to protect the crew against Cryptosporidium parvum infection. We support major Food and Beverage companies, Pharmaceutical companies, Electronics companies, Hospitals and stores management companies as well as a wide range of water treatment and general chemical companies. We would love to help your company also.
Our aim is to offer the best of all worlds. We offer the highest level of expertise and knowledge, the support of the world's largest manufacturers in filtration, who we represent, and we treat you as the most important person on earth and not just a number. If you want something special or out of the ordinary and we can provide what you want, we will, no red tape.
Here is some interesting information and news which may surprise you. CFS is fully insured for sums up to £10,000,000 but most insurance companies will not cover the risks associated with the industries into which we deal. Cover for the desired risks does have a huge cost. I would question how many of our competitors are actually covered? CFS is also a holder of an 'Office of Trading Standards' Licence and is a member of the Federation of Small Businesses. Our team believes in leaving nothing to chance, we want customers for the next 50 years not the next 5 minutes.
We believe in providing the optimum service and the optimum products at a reasonable, not excessive, price. Our team of people means our company is secure for the future, particularly with the backing of our world leaders in filtration technology. If you select CFS as your filtration partner, rest assured that your investment is in the product and service delivered to you by CFS. A trip to CFS will see large storage facilities, laboratory equipment essential for filtration excellence (not owned by many filter companies). We provide training facilities of the highest degree and hold stock dedicated to our loyal and important customers. We don't believe in massive wage bills, and when you park outside CFS you will see practical transport of motorcycles and economically run diesel vehicles to go with our 'green philosophy'. The vehicles that we run, you the customer pay for directly or indirectly, so we keep that cost to a minimum which in turn keeps our product costs to a minimum.
Our service is available when you need it, that's 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, 8760 hours each year. Compare that to most manufacturers who are open at best just 1887 hours a year (normal working hours). If you need help weekends, holidays or at night we can help. When you buy from CFS you get a product and a very extensive service, you don't just buy a product, and we also aim to save you money.
On new systems, we make our customers aware of not only the installation cost but the ongoing running costs. Most filter companies offer a small system initially, to keep the installation cost low, but this can be sheer folly. Did you know that if you double the effective surface area of filter media, the life goes up by a factor of four. A small system could cost 4 times as much to run! We make everything crystal clear and offer total honesty. We can assist leasing on capital spend if required.
CFS offers the best products available. We offer a service on the highest level. We offer laboratory support using equipment of the highest calibre and beyond the level most manufacturers offer, and we can train in all aspects of filtration. Please our Lab Support section.
CFS continues to grow and expand. Now with our sister company UFS (Ultimate Filtration Solutions) we can not only supply well known high grade filtration, and support them with state of the art laboratories, but we can also now make our own range of filtration products.
Give us the chance to show you how we can help you, take the courage to look at change and empower yourself to improve your companies future. Call 02392 595505 now.
CFS is now in our 16th year of operation with an expanding team of personnel. We are proud that we have become the largest distributor in Europe for Graver Technologies and have some of the most respected and well known corporations and companies in our customer portfolio. It is likely that every house in the UK has products that were filtered using filters which came from CFS. CFS is able to supply all filtration applications making us probably the most cost effective supplier for industry. For those customers who have joined us I would like to publicly thank them for their support and pledge ours to them for the future.
CFS can supply all your filtration requirements including critical Process Filtration, Water Filtration, Air Filtration, Fuel and Lube, Liquid filtration equipment, and HVAC filtration
First Brexit and now Covid-19(Coronavirus) and never has filtration been more important. CFS has a policy to ensure we cope with the challenges ahead including sterilisation of buldings as required. CFS is forward thinking in all ways and as filtration costs continue to rise , more users of filtration are looking to CFS to avoid increases if possible and potentially save money. CFS is a UK based company with a team who can support your filtration requirements from almost any application with a wide range of customers from Pharmaceutical. Wines, Spriit's, Brewing, Chemicals, Coatings, Electronics or in fact any liquid or gas which needs filtering. Whatever your requirement and whoever your supplier we are likely to offer savings, plus potential improvements in security and knowledge based on staff with over 30 years experience in the business. Filtration is a science taking years of study and experience. We don't have a sales force who have sales targets. We don't have a team who have to sell to keep jobs but what we do have is a team that cares that what you have is right and you want to stay with CFS as a partner in filtration.
With the vote for 'Brexit' we want to assure all our customers in Europe, and the world, that our support will not change in any way and could in fact become much easier going forward as 'red tape' is removed. We see increased opportunities in many areas, and certainly not problems.
With UK based production facilities in Waterlooville, Hampshire we pride ourselves on offering what is right for your application based on scientific testing to absolute efficiencies.
Together Derek Baker and Sally Thompson, having over 55 years experience in filtration, are able to offer potential savings and improvements in your system or show why, based on science, your system can be improved. More and more customers are finding there is no substitute for experience and honesty, and are moving to use truly absolute rated filters from CFS. Let us look at offering the best quality in filtration, at the best prices, backed by 30 years of scientific knowledge in the industry. Graver Technologies, AMC, and the Jaguar Process range are all high quality products which can guarantee the quality of your company products and its reputation. We will not take risks and none of our staff are on commission. The customer is the most important person at all times.
One phone number is all you need for all your filtration requirements and that is 0333 66 66 600. CFS is almost 16 years old and has shown growth every year. We supply and support some of the largest companies in the UK but also regard the smaller companies as key to our growth for the future. We can supply filters for any purpose and also supply them branded to our customer's requirements with their name, contact details and certification.
CFS, and our sister company UFS, can provide filters from the world's best known filter manufacturers. We also produce the Jaguar range here at our site in Waterlooville. If quality and exact filtration is your prime requirement please let us help you for the future. We know, based on 28 years in the business, that a filter is not just a filter. A filter which is not assembled correctly is not a filter, it's a tube and if not totally integral might as well not be there at all. We also ensure you get the right filter for your application, ensure you work to 'absolute' removal ratings not nominal ratings which mean nothing, and if you need a membrane filter we ensure a membrane filter is what you get. Membrane filters also need to be validated and we supply the highest validation available. Some well known companies in the UK are now supplying what we deem 'sub standard' filters to compete purely on cost. If you come to CFS we will supply quality and value for money, and hopefully the price will please you as well. Call and talk to us, and find out why so many who have talked to us stick with us. Knowledge is the key and CFS has knowledge of filtration based on working in your industry. Our knowledge covers manufacture, testing, validating and providing the right filter for every application. If you have a bacterial problem we can offer the right filter, if you have a particulate problem again we can help. One filter is not right for both. A 0.45 micron filter may not be right for the removal of bacteria , we will ensure you get the right filter for the job and not the cheapest one or one that gives the supplier the best profit margin. CFS is aiming to be here long into the future and we would hope we can be your filtration supplier for that time as well. Please beware of companies who just sell a pleated filter to replace a pleated filter, they are out there! Replace a 1 micron absolute rated filter for cryptosporidium protection with a nominally rated 1 micron filter and lives could be at risk. This is happening with our competitors due to lack of experience but CFS would only give the right filter guaranteed! With us there is no risk.
CFS operates from several large warehouses in Hampshire, with large stocks and the ability to make filters to order quickly. We also have probably one of the most comprehensive test facilities in filtration, with the ability to test liquid samples to show what filtration is required for your needs. We can also test filters you currently use and give a comprehensive report on their true removal efficiency, not what is claimed on the label.
With over 34 years experience in filtration, and the experience of setting up filtration manufacturing companies and selling to all industries from Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical to Electronics, Semiconductor, chemical, water treatment and Food and Beverage (small selection), CFS could be the partner for your company for the future. Experience is key, we have worked in engineering and Filtration at the highest levels in the last 4 decades and can help you based on that experience. Some regard filtration as a commodity sold on price alone, in fact filtration is highly scientific and it is key to get flow rates, flux rates, and differential pressures right so that it works well. We employ experts in filtration so if you have a technical question I hope we can answer it quickly and efficiently to help you and your business. Give us a try and never look back.
