History of FilterWorks, USA
Filterworks USA was founded by Gregg Strandberg in 1988 to provide air conditioning and paint booth filtration services to south Florida businesses. In 1990, Filterworks became a distributor for Garmat USA, the nation’s leading spray booth manufacturer. Since Filterworks USA’s alignment with Garmat, Filterworks has been one of Garmat’s top 3 North American distributors for 25 years in a row, including 10 years at number 1.
The Filterworks team has installed over 1,500 paint booths within the southeast United States. Filterworks USA is the exclusive Garmat distributor for Florida, Georgia, and east Tennessee. In 2008, Filterworks became a licensed general and mechanical contractor in the state of Florida.
In 2010, Filterworks became the exclusive Florida distributor for Car-O-Liner, the industry leader in frame, measuring, and welding equipment for the automotive collision repair industry. Since the hire of Bob Zelano- a long-time industry veteran, ASE Master Technician, and award-winning I-CAR instructor- to run Filterworks USA’s Car-O-Liner division in 2014, Filterworks has been a top performer for Car-O-Liner and a go-to training resource for customers across the state.
