Dust & fume collection specialist builds new UK facility

Camfil Farr Air Pollution Control (APC), a global manufacturer of dust and fume collection equipment, has announced plans to open a 40,000 sq ft facility in the United Kingdom to serve industrial customers throughout the UK and Europe.

Work is already underway for the new plant, which is located in the Birch Business Park in Heywood, Greater Manchester, UK. The facility is expected to open in January 2013. When it is fully operational, Camfil Farr APC expects to employ more than 100 people in engineering, metal fabrication, welding and assembly positions.
 
'We are making a significant investment in the new UK manufacturing plant to allow us to service our European customer base more effectively,' states Rick Kreczmer, European sales director for Camfil Farr APC.

We intend to meet and exceed customer expectations.'
 
Company president Lee Morgan adds: 'Camfil Farr APC has grown into a global dust collection company over the past five years, with our most dramatic growth in the UK and European industrial markets. This strategically located facility will allow us to be more responsive to customer needs in Europe and to expand our manufacturing capacity to meet both short- and long-term goals.'
