JONESBORO, Ark., October 27, 2021— Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC), manufacturer of industrial dust, fume and mist collection systems for industrial processes, announces the groundbreaking for its new manufacturing and office facility. The event will take place at Craighead Technical Park in Jonesboro on November 4, 2021, beginning at 11:00 a.m. central time. Camfil plans to invest more than $37 million in the facility, which will add about 67 new jobs within five years to an existing workforce of 237 people.
“We extend our most sincere thanks to everyone who has supported our plans to develop this new facility,” said Armando Brunetti, President of Camfil Americas. “The people of Jonesboro have been key to the success of Camfil APC, and we are honored to continue to thrive here and to contribute to local economic growth.”
Camfil APC has been headquartered in Jonesboro for more than 20 years. In early 2020, the company was already planning to develop a new manufacturing site when a tornado destroyed their facility. Since then, Camfil has been operating out of three separate leased locations throughout the city. The new 290,000-square-foot facility will occupy 34 acres and is scheduled to open in Fall 2022. In addition to space for manufacturing industrial dust collectors and filter cartridges, the facility will also house sales offices, warehousing and shipping.
