Company history

Tetra Pak Filtration Solutions is Tetra Pak's competence center for membrane separation technologies. Before we became part of Tetra Pak, we were 3 different companies: Filtration Engineering, DSS Silkeborg, and Tetra Pak Filtration Systems. Our history goes a long way back ... to the early days of membrane filtration.

The pioneering days

Filtration Engineering began their business in 1982 as membrane process consultants helping dairy processors evaluate the best membrane technology for their business. They offered a complete line of membrane products for the dairy and food industries, as well as replacement membranes and spare parts, mainly in the US.

In 1999, DSS Silkeborg, was established in Silkeborg Denmark by visionary believers in membrane filtration. The mission was to supply first-class polymer membrane filtration plants and a wide range of replacement membranes from different manufacturers to the dairy industry world-wide. 

Tetra Pak Filtration Systems was established in Aarhus Denmark in 1981. Initially working with polymer hollow fiber and spiral-wound membranes for dairy and juice applications, they extended their portfolio with ceramic filtration plants in 1986. 

Tetra Pak acquires Filtration Engineering and DSS Silkeborg

Following several very successful years for Filtration Engineering and DSS Silkeborg, Tetra Pak acquired the two companies in 2012/2013. The deal strengthened the existing membrane filtration portfolio of Tetra Pak, combining outstanding experience and know-how in ceramic and polymeric membrane filtration technologies. 

United under the name of Tetra Pak Filtration Solutions, we now serve customers all over the world from our expert centers in Silkeborg Denmark and Champlin MN USA.
