Meet the A.C.T. Dust Collectors Team


Tony House, Territory Manager

I started working with A.C.T. Dust Collectors on a full-time basis in 1999, giving me over 22 years of experience. My experience ranges from dust collection install to assembly and design to sales. Over the years, I have worked and contributed to every aspect of the business. I have seen a lot of changes in the company and have enjoyed watching it grow. I have my BS in Economics from the University of Minnesota. More so than the knowledge gained at school, I feel that the experience in the field is invaluable. My territory includes the eastern and southwestern United States.

Dave Boehne, Territory Manager

I have been employed with A.C.T. Dust Collectors since 1992. For the first 10 years I worked in service, repair and installation of air filtration equipment. I believe the knowledge gained in those first 10 years is irreplaceable. From there I moved into the sales department selling filtration systems directly to end users in WI, MN, ND and SD. My greatest accomplishment is being directly involved with the creation of the A.C.T. line of dust collection equipment. My current position is territory manager for the northern states which includes western Wisconsin and west to Washington state.

Jason Wyman, Inside Sales/Customer Service

I have been with A.C.T. Dust Collectors since 2019. My primary focus is providing excellent customer support and ensuring that customers receive the assistance they need before and after they receive their dust collector. My earlier years with A.C.T. were spent working in the shop and learning how the systems are assembled and built, as well as the different features that go along with the systems. Working at A.C.T. Dust Collectors has been a great experience and I look forward to what the future holds!
