Camfil has announced an expansion at its Malaysia plant, after acquiring additional land in the region, to increase its capacity and manufacturing footprint. The expanded plant will be operational by Q4 in 2022.
The total land size of the plant will increase to 759,000 sqft. It will enable the company to meet growing demand for air filters (particulate and molecular) not only in the Asia Pacific region but globally, it says.
The expansion will be located adjacent to the existing plant, including an R&D facility as well as a HEPA filter, turbo machinery and molecular filter manufacturing. The plant will continue to produce air filters and products aligned to the United Nations sustainable development goals.
The company says the four goals that have been identified as the most relevant to its business are goal 3, good health and wellbeing; goal 8, decent work and economic growth; goal 11, sustainable cities and communities and goal 12, responsible consumption and production.
”The MYR50M investment for the new plant expansion allows us to accelerate our growth strategy and broaden our offerings in APAC as we focus on delivering long-term value to our customers." said Teng Kim Ming, Camfil Malaysia, VP Finance & IT (APAC).
