The Filter Man: 32 Years Making Kitchens Cleaner and Safer

By Terence O’Reilly, Jr. and Sean O’Reilly, Sr.

More than 32 years ago, our father, TERMAC founder Terence O’Reilly Sr., suggested starting a company that replaces grease filters. After all, competitors were expanding into TERMAC’s primary area, dishwashing machines, and it was time for TERMAC to get into another part of the kitchen.

We started The Filter Man, and it didn’t take long for the new company to gain a foothold in the industry. TERMAC, which had been around for a quarter of a century at the time, (and now, for 59 years), had a reputation for great service. In fact, since customers always welcomed “the dish man,” the name of the new company became “The Filter Man.” Celebrating its 32nd anniversary this year, The Filter Man was the first subsidiary of TERMAC. Along with its success, our family of companies has grown to five.

The Filter Man specializes in exchanging dirty grease filters for clean ones in commercial kitchens. Customers appreciate that with clean filters, there is less stress on hoods and duct work. Better airflow reduces the possibility of clogged ducts, and decreases smoke and odors. The convenient exchange program saves customers time and risk of injury to staff.

From the beginning, The Filter Man set itself apart from competitors. We use only high quality stainless steel filters (instead of aluminum), which have a brighter, cleaner look — important in today’s open kitchens where customers can see the equipment Over the past 32 years, The Filter Man has gained a reputation for consistent scheduled maintenance, experienced, professional technicians, and affordable pricing, all giving it staying power. Now, as an established company, customers have come to depend on us and trust us. The business has expanded to eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia.

For our part, we have enjoyed gaining your trust with our high quality service. And what we have found particularly rewarding is pretty simple: the great people we work with, technicians, employees and of course, our customers.
