A leading global manufacturer of dust collection equipment, Camfil Air Pollution Control expanded its corporate headquarters in Jonesboro, Arkansas, with the recent opening of a 13,600 sq. ft. office facility. The facility includes open-plan and private offices for 85 employees and a training center to be used for customer and internal training and educational programs.
Company officials said construction of the new office building has freed up additional production space in the Jonesboro manufacturing plant. The corporate headquarters expansion is the latest step in the company’s worldwide global development program. 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," company President Lee Morgan said. In May 2013, Camfil APC also opened a new 40,000 sq. ft. facility in the United Kingdom to serve industrial customers throughout the UK and Europe.
