Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) expanded its corporate headquarters with the opening of a 13,600-sq-ft office facility for sales and administrative staff. The facility in Jonesboro, AR, includes open-plan and private offices for 85 employees and a training center to be used for customer and internal training and educational programs. Construction of the new office building has also freed up additional production space in the Jonesboro manufacturing plant.
The company said the corporate headquarters expansion is the latest step in a global development program by Camfil APC. The recent acquisition of Handte has nearly doubled the size of the company. Handte is a German manufacturer of dust collectors, mist collectors, and wet scrubbers that complement the Farr Gold Series® cartridge dust collection line,
"Our expansion in Jonesboro reflects our overall growth and will help support integration of the Handte product lines into the Camfil APC portfolio," said company President Lee Morgan.
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.
