“Our air filtration and clean air solutions business has been robust for more than a decade and this new facility will help us improve service levels in the Southwest Region and continue growing,” said Armando Brunetti, president of Camfil Americas.
The new manufacturing facility – Camfil’s seventh in the USA – will be equipped to produce a full range of air filtration products. The 350 000 sq ft Synergy Park facility is scheduled to open in late 2023 and will add more than 200 new jobs within five years.
“The new facility in Kilgore is an important puzzle piece in our long-term North American strategy, and it gives me great pleasure that we are now moving ahead with this,” said Dan Larson, deputy EVP Supply Chain, SVP Operations of the Camfil Group. “My personal and Camfil’s commitment towards clean air for our customers and partners is measured not in years, but decades. I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship between the great state of Texas, the town of Kilgore and Camfil.”
“Our company was already enjoying strong business momentum before recent events led to an increased awareness in clean air safety,” said Brunetti. “We are fortunate to have found a great location in Kilgore and look forward to investing in our workforce and the community.”
The Camfil Group, which is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, has 33 manufacturing sites, six R&D centres, local sales offices in 30 countries, and 4800 employees.
