Our History

Design Filtration Microzone Leadership Change


Dominic Côté

Vice-Président Operations Canerector


Shannon Duncan

General Manager DFMZ

Over the last two and a half years I have been leading Design Filtration Microzone (DFMZ) through its journey of market growth and business transformation.  It has been a pleasure to work with this amazing team. One Team, One Goal is truly the culture this business promotes and with over 50 years of experience and knowledge DFMZ really is unique in their custom air contamination particulate control manufacturing solutions. 

I want to share that I have accepted a new opportunity to join the Canerector (DFMZ’s parent company) Vice President team, supporting several Canerector companies by facilitating communication and alignment between the company’s leadership team and Canerector. In this role, I will work closely with the leaders of our individual companies and their teams, to help them achieve their goals in areas such as culture, vision, sales, distribution, service, and many others.

At this time, it is with great pleasure, that I announce Shannon Duncan has accepted the role of General Manager of DFMZ.  Shannon has been Director of Operations at DFMZ for two years in July.   His success in this role speaks for itself as he quickly implemented strategic operations approaches that have improved workflow and efficiencies as well as cross training for our shop team and creating an effective onboarding culture to support the growth of the team and the company. Shannon has built a good rapport with his leadership peers and is well respected as he moves into his new role. In addition, his 20 years of experience in customer relations, services, distribution, and manufacturing industries will serve him well as he leads DFMZ into the future.  

Thank you to all DFMZ team members for their support and to Canerector for giving me this opportunity.  I look forward to this new journey and working with some of our business leaders and their companies.
