New European manufacturing base

On May 21, Camfil Air Pollution Control (Camfil APC) officially opened a new production and assembly facility in the United Kingdom at the Birch Business Park in Heywood, Greater Manchester.

The new 3,700-square-metre Heywood facility has been strategically sited in the UK to meet the growing demand for Camfil APC’s dust collection equipment across Europe. The investment builds further on recent sales and marketing initiatives to migrate and introduce Camfil’s APC product line in Europe from a new and larger base.

Camfil APC, a growing business for Camfil, specializes in advanced collectors to clean dust and fumes in facilities for food production, metalworking, shot blasting, laser and plasma cutting, thermal spray, pharmaceutical manufacturing, mining and woodworking, amongst other processes. Flagship products include the Farr Gold SeriesTM of advanced dust collection equipment and the HemiPleatTM line of low-energy, long-life Gold ConeTM dust collector filters.

“This modern factory in Heywood, part of Camfil UK’s operations, will drastically reduce lead times for a very quick turnaround on orders for European customers. Camfil APC is now well equipped and positioned for further growth in the European market,” says Graeme Bell, European Sales Manager.

When fully staffed, the Heywood facility will employ more than 100 in engineering, manufacturing and support positions. The plant includes a four-bay welding area, fabrication area, powder paint line, assembly area, and storage space. In addition to dust collection equipment, the Heywood plant’s metal-working capacity will also be utilized for the production of other Camfil products.
