Pullman-Holt Corp., USA and Pullman Ermator, Sweden announced the establishment of a Tampa, Fla.-based company. The joint venture, called Pullman Ermator LLC, “will be a leader in the manufacturing of HEPA vacuums and dust extractors used in the abatement, restoration, remediation and construction industries,” the company said.

“The demand for vacuums with high-efficiency filtration systems continues to grow as the health risks to workers from airborne dust are increasingly identified and documented.

This joint venture will assure our continued leadership position in the North American market for hazardous material pick-up,” said Bob Eukovich, vice-president for sales and marketing at Pullman-Holt.
