Camfil Group to Build New Manufacturing Facility in Jonesboro, Arkansas
Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC), manufacturer of industrial dust, fume and mist collection systems, announces construction of a new manufacturing facility in Jonesboro to replace its previous building that was destroyed by a tornado in March. The new factory and office space will be located at Craighead Technology Park. The target date for completion is early 2022.
Committed to continue development in the area, Camfil APC has operated in Jonesboro for over 20 years, providing jobs, investing in the local economy and contributing to the community. Since the tornado, the company has been conducting manufacturing operations out of a rented local facility. Sales offices, filter cartridge production, warehousing and shipping were not damaged. All 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.
