Serfac offers comprehensive filtration range


An expert in filtration for over 30 years, leading distributor Serfac Limited offers complete filter coverage from leading filtration brands Knecht and UFI plus Asian specialist Blue Print.

Distributed in Ireland by Serfac since the early 1990s, Knecht is part of the Mahle brand family and has a global reputation for superb quality.

All the company’s products are quality certified and are subject to multi-stage quality control. Knecht Filters are at the leading edge of filter manufacturing technology and makes the brand the choice of the world’s most prestigious manufacturers.

Knecht offers a comprehensive range of oil and fuel filters for passenger cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles and continuously expands its range with innovative, high quality products, including eco filters that can be completely incinerated, all of which are produced to original equipment quality.

Mahle places particular value on the fact that new trade products are brought onto the market as close as possible to the start of the vehicle’s production and, in most cases, before the first service interval. Accordingly, the “time to market”, i.e. the period of time required from product development to market launch, is given a high priority.

A recent addition to the Serfac brand range is leading Italian filter brand UFI. One of the world’s leaders in filtration with 16 industrial sites, three innovation centres and 54 commercial offices around the world, UFI was founded in Italy in 1971. UFI is a leading OE filtration provider and 95 per cent of vehicle manufacturers worldwide choose UFI Filters which cover over 60,000 applications.

UFI supplies a full range of oil and fuel filters to the automotive sector, meeting the needs of nearly all car brands and motorcycles as well as commercial, heavy duty and agricultural vehicles. UFI filters are chosen by six out of seven of the largest automobile manufacturers and by seven out of 10 F1 teams. UFI employs 120 specialised technicians in its innovation and research centres and holds 167 patents.

As a research-driven company, it says it reinvests over five per cent of its revenues in research and development.

Some of the most popular recent additions to the UFI filter range include:
