A history of Maxtech starts with a history of Mr Dilip Sakhpara. He started work with W.L Gore & Associates in Delaware, USA in 1984. For 25 years, he was the division head for Industrial Dry Filtration (IDF) for the Indian sub-continent market. Mr Dilip was instrumental in bringing membrane filtration technology to India. He carried out India’s first ever installation of membrane bags at Saurashtra Cement in 1995. Soon thereafter in 1996, Ambuja Kodinar carries out an extensive 4-compartment trial to increase airflow through their baghouse. Slowly but surely, the entire cement kiln market converted to membrane filter bags within a few years.
In 2014, Gore planned a change in their strategy for the Indian market. Mr Dilip founded Maxtech Industries out of W.L Gore-India’s IDF team. At the same time, Gore IDF division was dissolved and Maxtech bought out Creative Techno Solutions (CTS) and their manufacturing facilities which were then approved by Gore to convert Gore filter media into filter bags.
