Sweden-Based Camfil Air Pollution Control Constructs Jonesboro, Arkansas, Manufacturing Plant
The company has operated in Jonesboro for more than 20 years and had already begun to make plans for a new facility when a 2020 tornado destroyed its existing manufacturing facility. Since then, Camfil has been operating out of three separate leased locations throughout the city and estimates that the new site will be operational in 2022. Sales offices, filter cartridge production, warehousing and shipping were not damaged and will also move to the new facility.
“We extend our most sincere thanks to everyone who has supported our plans to develop this new facility,” Armando Brunetti, President of Camfil Americas said. “The people of Jonesboro have been key to the success of Camfil APC, and we are honored to continue to thrive here and to contribute to local economic growth.”
A part of the Camfil Group, headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, Camfil Air Pollution Control has 30 manufacturing sites, six research-and-development centers, and local sales offices in 30 countries, as well as 4,800 employees. Camfil provides commercial and industrial systems for air filtration and air pollution control that improve worker and equipment productivity, minimize energy use, and benefit human health and the environment.
“Camfil has been a strong community partner for two decades, and we are excited to be a part of their success as they continue to grow with innovative products and services that make us all breathe a little easier,” said Secretary of Commerce Mike Preston. “I am looking forward to working with them in the future as they complete this new expansion.”
“Camfil’s dedication to its employees and the City of Jonesboro are on full display today,” said Mark Young, President of Jonesboro Unlimited. “The reinvestment Camfil is making in a new facility and the hiring of additional employees in Jonesboro speaks volumes to the relationships they have built here and their continued commitment to our city.”
