TEKA - We are "The Air Purifiers"
From a two-man business to a global player
It all started with a little grey box. 25 years ago, Jürgen Kemper and Erwin Telöken
developed and built their first extraction unit for dental and laboratory technology.
With a lot of potential - as the rapid growth of the company showed. Within just a few
years, the two-man business developed into a global player. Today, TEKA Absaug-
und Entsorgungstechnologie GmbH, with around 150 employees in Coesfeld and
Weseke, produces extraction units for the automotive, metal and electrical industries.
TEKA filter units provide clean air for employees at the industrial workplace and help
to protect the environment. The portfolio of the full-range supplier ranges from mobile
and stationary units for source extraction to ventilation solutions for hall air filtration
and complex system solutions for the cutting industry.
Dealer loyalty and customer proximity
Individually tailored to the operational situation, suitable for everyday use, easy to
operate - this credo still applies to TEKA solutions today. "The Air Purifiers" have
always kept their feet firmly on the ground despite continuous growth and have
placed great emphasis on close dealer and customer support. TEKA is regarded in
the industry as a problem solver that intensively responds to the needs of trading
partners and end customers. Individual advice and support are still a top priority in
the digital age. An important role is played here by the company's own
communication centre with training rooms and 1,000 m² of exhibition space where
more than 100 training and further education courses take place annually.
Lived innovation spirit
To this day, the company continues to set trends in ventilation technology with its
new developments. Great importance has always been attached to compliance with
legal standards that protect users from harmful welding fumes and grinding dust right
at the workplace. TEKA was one of the first suppliers to be awarded the W3
certifications according to DIN EN ISO 15012-1 given by the Institute for
Occupational Safety and Health for almost all its mobile and stationary extraction
Health protection is on the rise
The modern air pollution control nowadays covers not only the extraction and the
filtration of polluted process air, but also the constant monitoring of the air quality.
Here TEKA has recognized the signs of the times: With its innovation strategy, the
company is a successful pioneer in the field of Industry 4.0, as evidenced, among
other things, by the Airtracker digital room air monitoring system.
