Hygienic Fabrics & Filters is committed to maintaining an entrepreneurial culture of innovation and trust. Hygienic Fabrics & Filters offers a competitive compensation package, clean work environment, and opportunities for advancement.
The Sheboygan Bandage Company in the early 1900s made cheese wraps and circles using linen type cloth. Today Hygienic Fabrics and Filters uses the same materials as well as other new fabrics to produce these items as well as a host of filters.
Hygienic Fabrics & Filters was founded in 1959 as a supplier of fabricated cloth and filter media socks, tubes, and filters for the food and dairy industries in the dairy states of the Midwest and eastern US. The industry has changed dramatically over those early days when every dairy had a small- to medium-size cheese plant attached to the dairy in order to avoid wasting excess milk. The advent of efficient tanker trucks to transport milk eliminated the need for many of these small, dairy-fed cheese companies, as their excess milk could be sold to cooperatives that supply the growing cheese manufacturers that operate throughout the country today.
Although we still take great pride in supplying products to cheese makers who use the traditional methods of bandaging cheese in hoops with cotton cheesecloth, we have evolved to also fabricate filters, tubes, bags, and wraps for the larger modern operations in place today. Our products are now also used internationally.
