Hometown Filter

Hometown Filter aims to provide quality filters to the HVAC and paint filtration markets of Indiana and Michigan. Our filters are made in Indiana and priced competitively.

Currently, we are serving in Northern Indiana and Western Michigan with offices in Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Grand Rapids.

We are the authorized distributors for Parker-Airguard, Glasfloss, and Air Flow Technology.

About Us

In 2014, we purchased the Indiana operations of Midwest Air Filter. We are the same folks, supplying the same brand filters, out of the same locations in Fort Wayne and South Bend as we have since our start in 1982. The only change you’ll see is our new name, “Hometown Filter.” We think that Hometown Filter portrays a local, neighborly feel, which has been our intention since the beginning.

We are excited to announce that Jeff Popma has recently joined our team. Jeff has over 25 years of experience in the air filter business. He will help us grow our brand in Western Michigan.

Thank you again for your loyalty and continued support! We look forward to supplying your filtration needs in the future!
