Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) is to construct a new manufacturing facility in Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA to replace a building that was destroyed by a tornado earlier this year.
The new factory and office space will be located in Jonesboro’s Craighead Technology Park, with a completion target date of early 2022.
Camfil APC, which manufactures industrial dust, fume and mist collection systems, has operated in Jonesboro for over 20 years. Since the tornado in March 2020, the company has been conducting manufacturing operations in a rented local facility. Even though the sales offices, filter cartridge production, warehousing and shipping were not damaged in the tornado, all of these functions will move to the new facility.
“We are grateful to everyone who has helped us move forward and make this new production facility possible, especially our parent company, Camfil Group, for committing the resources to help us rebuild. We also thank the city of Jonesboro, the Jonesboro Chamber of Commerce, architects Fisher Arnold, our dedicated employees, our extremely supportive customers, and the people of Jonesboro,” said Graeme Bell, vice president of Camfil APC Americas.
Camfil APC is a part of the Swedish Camfil Group.
