ADA, Mich. - Wood dust and woodwaste management supplier O2 Filtration is changing its name to Hocker North America. An official ceremony will take place during the AWFS woodworking show, which will be held July 19-22 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
An exhibitor at the biennial woodworking fair, Hocker North America will demonstrate Hocker Polytechnik products and systems at Booth #8622. In addition to dust collection systems, the company also offers briquetting presses, shredders, biomass boilers, sanding and paint booths, and energy management systems.
The company said it has also given 15 percent stock to Frank Hocker of Hocker Polytechnik GmbH in return for distribution rights to the packaging industry. This new relationship expands the distribution by O2/Hocker North America of all Hocker Polytechnik products to the wood, paper and packaging industries.
O2 Filtration has been partnering as an exclusive U.S. distributor of Hocker Polytechnick for a number of years, said Ben Dipzinski, owner of the Ada, Michigan-based company. “Our relationship continues to strengthen even after eight years of working together. Hocker Polytechnic is a family company and its employees, managers, and owners are all great people.”
