Since FAUDI was founded in 1938 by Fritz Faudi, the company has always stood for innovative filtration and separation technology. Today, FAUDI GmbH with its two product ranges, Coolant (coolant processing) and Process (treatment of process liquids and gases or process filtration), is a guarantee for high-quality plant and system construction Made in Germany – and of course, all international approvals and certificates are fully taken into account. FAUDI is committed to Germany as their location. Our central Hessian headquarters in Stadtallendorf is the focus of development, engineering, manufacture, service and marketing all geared to provide our customers with the best solutions from a single source. Our representatives in all of the most important parts of the world make it possible to provide service to our customers locally in a timely manner.
We offer practical filtration solutions for a broad range of applications. Our products and services help you to comply with legal regulations, improve performance and at the same time reduce your operating costs. This is because at FAUDI, when we talk about quality, we go far beyond the categories of long service life and trouble-free operation: “Total cost of ownership” (TCO) is an important measure our engineers apply for their development work.
FAUDI relies on the use of their patented filter systems without filter aids. This results in fewer residual materials, which is not only economical, but is also becoming increasingly important in terms of the environment. The system’s processes are fully automatic, thereby assisting and simplifying the workflow. The high-quality components used exclusively in the product design are essential reasons why FAUDI equipment is so durable and reliable. We help you reach your goals.FAUDI – Filtration in perfection.
Reliable production equipment with a high level of efficiency and availability is more important than ever, especially in our day and age. In order to enable our customers to focus on their own production, we offer our full range of expertise in the planning and development of new systems as well as the optimization and modernization of existing plants.
With our solutions in the divisions of Coolant and Process we ensure the trouble-free operation of plants and systems worldwide. With Coolant, we are a competent partner for modern coolant treatment in metalworking, while with Process, we offer high-performance filtration systems for treatment of process fluids and gases. With our know-how in the divisions of consultancy, project development, delivery, assembly, commissioning and maintenance as well as repair and conversions, we provide our customers with solutions that are a perfect match for their needs, all from a single source. You too can benefit from our versatility. Just get in touch.
Experience that counts.
For over 75 years we have stood for innovative and reliable filtration and separation technology for liquids and gases. It all began with the founding of the company by Fritz Faudi in 1938. In the 1920s, when innovators were still called inventors, engineer Fritz Faudi with the Rheinmetall company perfected the cardan shaft, essentially reinventing it. Like many of his inventions, the 'FAUDI joint' spread around the world and was added to the body of specialized literature. He decided to use his talent as the basis for his own company and founded FAUDI Feinbau GmbH in 1938.
In the years that followed, he made spectacular inventions in the field of filtration, which established the company's worldwide reputation. After the death of Fritz Faudi, his wife founded the “Fritz & Margot Faudi Foundation' to promote process technologies for keeping soil, air and water clean and developing new energy resources. In 1968, she transferred her inherited shares to the foundation, which still supports research projects carried out by the TU Darmstadt.
Consequently, the responsibility for mankind and the environment and the principle of always providing the customer with the newest technological advances are derived directly from the history of the FAUDI enterprise.
Fritz Faudi founded FAUDI Feinbau GmbH, Oberursel
Since 1937, Fritz Faudi had already had a licence from the French filter manufacturer, Rellumit. Faudi soon came to the conclusion that the filters being marketed under the licence were in need of improvement. Because he needed his own production facility, he founded FAUDI Feinbau GmbH together with his wife, Margot, in 1938, thereby laying the corner stone for the company as it is today.
Development, manufacture and marketing of the FAUDI disc filter
A high-performance filter for filtration of oils and aviation fuel – a product that was ahead of its time. The outstanding principle employed in this disc filter still finds use in the current FAUDI GmbH product range.
Development, manufacture and marketing of coalescer and separator elements for the separation of water and solids from aviation fuels
New design of precoat filters and magnetic separators
The redesign of the precoat filter for filtration of cooling lubricants was a great success for FAUDI Feinbau GmbH, and it garnered national and international attention. The development of the no less successful magnetic separator took place in the same time frame.

FAUDI Feinbau GmbH acquired Atlantik Gerätebau GmbH
The acquisition of Atlantik Gerätebau GmbH in Stadtallendorf, which thereby established the current company headquarters, was an important step for FAUDI as the vessels made by Atlantik GmbH are a perfect complement to the manufacture of filters in the FAUDI GmbH Process area.
Relocation to Stadtallendorf
The consolidation of corporate functions at the Stadtallendorf location took place in 1997. Shorter communication paths, concentrated know-how and a new centre for research and development all facilitated increased productivity. A total of 16 million German marks were invested at this site in a new production facility and a unique type of research and development centre.
New development and patenting of the RMF filter (regenerable micro filter)
New development and patenting of the pressure belt filter
Expansion of the product range with compact central systems for machine tools and with vacuum extraction systems for chips and briquetting presses for chips and grinding sludge.
Acquisition of Faudi GmbH by Watz Hydraulik GmbH
In spite of high-quality products and remarkable innovative drive, the changing global economic situation at the start of the new millennium and decision-making errors by the management at the time led to the initiation of insolvency proceedings in 2006. After acquisition by WATZ Hydraulik GmbH, it was possible to preserve nearly all of the jobs at the Stadtallendorf location and growth was attained once again by 2006.
FAUDI GmbH 70th anniversary
The new module filter system as well as the backflush filter which set new quality standards were introduced in the Process division in the last few years. In the Coolant segment, FAUDI recently presented the new screw and briquetting presses as well as the rod magnetic separator. 120,000 FAUDI filters and filter systems on five continents speak for themselves! FAUDI keeps operations running in a diverse array of industry sectors and is looking forward to the next 70 years.
