A HEREFORDSHIRE company has been praised for continuing to invest in its factory.

Hereford and South Herefordshire Conservative MP Jesse Norman said he was delighted to visit Ultrafilter in Alton Road, Ross-on-Wye, to inspect its latest investment.

Mr Norman was greeted by chief executive Dustin Kronsbein who took over after the tragic death of his father Dean Kronsbein in a boating accident last year.


Dean Kronsbein died aged 61 after the yacht he was on crashed into rocks off the coast of Sardinia in July 2022.

Jesse Norman and Dustin Kronsbein inspected the Ultrafilter personal protective equipment (PPE) mask production line together, and also the clean room for the company's new liquid filtration production line, which is expected to go live after Easter.


Mr Norman said: “It was fantastic to visit Ultrafilter, meet with their CEO Dustin Kronsbein, look at the mask production line and discuss the company's planned new investment in liquid filtration products.

"It is great to see this entrepreneurial company installing innovative technologies in Herefordshire. Bravo!”
