Camfil Farr Air Pollution Control (APC), a leading global manufacturer of dust and fume collection equipment, has announced plans to open a 40,000 sq. ft. facility in the United Kingdom to serve industrial customers throughout the UK and Europe.
Work is already underway for the new plant, which is located in the Birch Business Park in Heywood, Greater Manchester, UK. The facility is expected to open in January 2013. When it is fully operational, Camfil Farr APC expects to employ more than 100 people in engineering, metal fabrication, welding and assembly positions.
“We are making a significant investment in the new UK manufacturing plant to allow us to service our European customer base more effectively,” states Rick Kreczmer, European sales director for Camfil Farr APC. “We will be able to supply products fast while still giving customers exactly what they require for their individual applications: quality dust collection equipment, fabricated to their needs and shipped on time. We intend to meet and exceed customer expectations.”
To meet employment demand Camfill Farr APC have chosen Manchester based Engineering Recruitment Firm Parker Sourcing Limited to assist in sourcing specialist and technical candidates for the new plant. Rick Kreczmer went on to say: “It has been excellent working with Parker Sourcing thus far. They have helped with our employee sourcing issues, bringing us only the most qualified candidates. They have saved us time and effort to get the most experienced people for our open positions.”
Managing Director of Parker Sourcing Limited, Lee Parker, said “Greater Manchester employs over 38,000 people in the advanced manufacturing sector which accounts for over a quarter of the advanced manufacturing employees in the UK, so I am particularly proud that we have been selected to help Camfil Farr sustain and build economic prosperity in the region.” He also added: “the company will be looking to recruit from all sections of the community, including apprentices through to specialist engineers wishing to secure quality and well-paid jobs.”
