The name ‘One Eye’ comes from a legendary story of courage and determination

The company name is based on the story of a one-eyed grizzly bear who lived in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.

 The story goes something like this:
One dark night, a large, feroucious grizzly broke into a hunter’s camper. The startled hunter fired at the snarling grizzly as it was charging through the camper door. In self-defense, the terrified hunter grabbed rifle and put a bullet straight through the grizzly’s eye; the startled bear took off and escaped into the forest. Afterwards, famous hunters and intrepid game wardens desperately searched the forest to find this dangerous, wounded bear.

 He was never caught.

He anticipated every trap. He outsmarted his competition. He became the cunning phantom grizzly named One Eye. As time passed, the legend of One Eye grew just as the grizzly grew larger, more powerful, and more menacing every year. So potent is this legendary bear, that in the end, even all his offspring were powerful, menacing, and one-eyed!

 One Eye’s intelligence, grit, and ability to beat the odds is the a perfect representation of our company and brand.


To support industrial machinery operators around the world with a sustainable magnetic filtration solution that drives safer operations, reduces operating costs, and improves the environmental impact of operations.

To be the trusted partner of industrial machinery operators around the world.
OEI Magnetic Filtration is the simplest way to achieve rapid payback with the lowest risk, by extending the life of rotating equipment. As a result, safety is improved while substantially reducing costs and environmental impact of operations.


They say that “necessity is the mother of invention.” So perhaps, we invent to fulfil basic needs. We see a void and we believe we can make that void go away. Sometimes though, our goals are loftier than that: We believe our world can be substantially better. And this, is the true motivator behind invention.

Some inventions however, are flawed — where obsolescence is planned and built into the solution itself. Where something as fundamental as the approach to solving a problem can cause other problems. So, OEI has taken a loftier approach: we believe that we can solve tomorrow’s challenges with today’s technology — that magnetic filtration can address not only some needs, but also challenges beyond the imagination of our industrial world.

For 18 years, we’ve focused on achieving rapid payback with minimal risk. We’ve believed that we could improve safety while reducing the environmental impact of operations. And we’ve proven over and over that we can do it. Longer lasting equipment with better reliability and reduced operating costs: This is what drives us. This is our better world. This is our better solution.
