New office building frees up additional production space in the Jonesboro manufacturing plant
Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) has expanded its corporate headquarters in Jonesboro in the US with the recent opening of a 13,600ft2 (1,263m2) office facility for sales and administrative staff. The facility includes open-plan and private offices for 85 employees and a training centre to be used for customer and internal training and educational programmes. Construction of the new office building has also freed up additional production space in the Jonesboro manufacturing plant.
The corporate headquarters expansion is the latest step in a worldwide global development program by Camfil APC. The recent acquisition of Handte, a German manufacturer of dust collectors, mist collectors and wet scrubbers that strategically complement the Farr Gold Series cartridge dust collection line, has nearly doubled the size of the company.
'Our expansion in Jonesboro reflects our overall growth and will help support integration of the Handte product lines into the Camfil APC portfolio,' said company President Lee Morgan. In May 2013, Camfil APC also opened a new 40,000ft2 (3,716m2) facility in the UK to serve industrial customers throughout the UK and Europe.
