JONESBORO, Ark. — Camfil Farr Air Pollution Control (APC), a 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,” said Rick Kreczmer, European sales director for Camfil Farr APC. “We will be able to supply products fast while still giving customers exactly what they require for their individual applications: quality dust collection equipment, fabricated to their needs and shipped on time. We intend to meet and exceed customer expectations.”
