NP Innovation AB

Although NP Innovation is a new company, our history is extensive. In fact, the company founders developed much of the microscreen market. Together we can demonstrate unrivalled experience and track record. It all started in 1984, when CEO Nils-Åke Persson was a consultant engineer, designing solutions for fish farms. However, the available filtration technology wasn’t adequate, and Mr. Persson had a vision for how he could improve it. To make this vision reality he founded Hydrotech, and just a year later his first microscreen filter became an instant success in the fish farm industry. Five years later he released the drumfilter, which became equally successful. In 1995 the company released its next innovation, the game-changing discfilter microscreen, mainly targeting the municipal water treatment market.

Twenty-eight years ago, Nils-Åke Persson and the people behind NP Innovation became pioneers in microscreen filtration for water treatment. Over the years we lead the market with a constant flow of innovations, improvements and new products, changing the way microscreen filtration was applied to a variety of filtration requirements.

Building on this experience, we have returned to take up the development again. You and the markets deserve industry-leading solutions that continue to evolve, maximizing performance whilst minimizing costs. The NP Drumfilter, the first of our new filtration solutions, is the first evidence that we’re delivering exactly that.

Finally, after almost 20 years of successful innovation, Nils-Åke Persson sold his company to the American group US Filter in 2002. Two years later he left the company and his position as CEO.

In 2013, Nils-Åke Persson and his partners returned, founding NP Innovation, and reclaiming their position in the field of microscreen filter development.
