Starting small, changing big

From our humble beginnings in Halle to our innovative transformation into Your Filter Factory! Discover the highlights that have made us who we are today.


Sometime around 2000, Ton van Hecke and Corry Proosten began the adventure that would become PB. From their home, actually the barn of their house in Halle, they began this exciting journey.


At the end of 2010, we once again outgrew our premises and a larger production facility in Zelhem was chosen. This is where the company is currently located and where a defined range of filtration products are manufactured.


A crucial turning point came in November 2018, when Arran Kassens took over the helm, supported by German forces Patrick and Thomas. This marked the beginning of a new chapter in PB’s history.


PB International has undergone a remarkable transformation and is now known as PB Your Filter Factory. Here we go beyond conventional water filtration; we rewrite the rules and set a new standard for water treatment.
