Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC), a global manufacturer of dust and fume extraction equipment, has opened its new 3,716m2 facility in the UK to serve customers in the UK and across Europe.

Camfil APC worked with the Rochdale Development Agency to find the site for the plant, which is located in the Birch Business Park in Heywood, Greater Manchester. The facility has been operational since April, with a current staff of 40. When fully staffed, it will employ more than 100 people in engineering, manufacturing and support positions. The plant includes a four-bay welding area, fabrication area, powder paint line, assembly area and storage space.

“We are poised to deliver Farr Gold Series dust extractors and related equipment fast and uphold our mission statement: to supply the best dust extractor from an end-user and maintenance standpoint.”

Typical applications for Camfil’s dust extraction equipment include laser and plasma cutting, thermal spray operations, welding, pharmaceutical manufacturing, chemical and food processing, and fibreglass manufacturing.
