In 1991, I started at Fuji Filter. In mid-1992, I switched to a Japanese trading company, where I focused more on disposable filters from a Japanese manufacturer. After 20 years, the result was a large number of end users in many industrial sectors and a network of distributors in Europe.
These filters had properties geared towards coating applications (such as filter capsules, solvent-based coatings, magnetic tapes, interior and top coatings for the automotive sector).
In the 1990s the optical media market (CD, DVD) grew and from 2004, I focused on inkjet applications, on filter capsules and hybrid filter cartridges for the production of inks, specifically. In 2010, I researched the rechargeable battery (Li-ion) market, where liquids with a high viscosity or high solids content need to be filtered during the production process.
The filtration market is constantly evolving, with new trends emerging all the time. An example of this is the demand for a waste-free filtration system (meaning that the system does not use any disposable filter material such as filter mesh, diatom or filter cartridges). I wondered what I could do to address this demand. In 2002, the idea of a cross-flow filter with concentric filter elements arose. With this system, the retained particles can be recovered and fed back into the process (e.g., catalytic converters)! This concept has been patented.
Arranged BV was founded in 2011 and in the meantime, our company has grown considerably. We have developed many new applications and products, our customers are located all over Europe, and the Arranged team is growing steadily.
In 2016, Arranged GmbH was founded in Germany. They mainly focus on German-speaking customers.
Curiosity and inventiveness have resulted in many new ideas, which have no direct link with filtration, but are very innovative. Meanwhile, we have a series of patents, ranging from hydrogen storage, green ammonia, an automatic vent valve to modern photodetector scanners that are used for control panels or dice scanners.
We have been in existence for 10 years now and our company's slogan “Trustworthy Business Development” is still the foundation: doing business together based on trust, loyalty and discretion.
Thank you for your interest.
