Camfil has commenced operation at its new plant in Tainan, Taiwan which will contribute in a circular systematic way to benefit the business, and the environment. The new facility with over 4,000 square metres in area has now started production and will create new employment opportunities and contribute directly towards Camfil's mission for a sustainable future.
The factory will act as a hub for molecular and particle filtration focusing on supporting the growing semiconductor, life science, and turbomachinery industry and by producing locally, it will help reduce shipping time from other facilities located in Asia. This plant is well equipped with the latest technology and operational capability to adapt the green process to elaborate the Camfil sustainability promises to the customers and the environment. By using our technology, we expect to reduce shipping costs, promote local manufacturing, and reduce waste handling. Our manufacturing process will have a reduced environmental impact as the facility will contribute to reducing waste generation for our customers by adopting a reuse/recycle approach for many filter components.
During the opening ceremony, representative of The Swedish Trade and Invest Council, Mr. Bengt G Carlsson was present and took the stage to highlight the benefits of this sustainable initiative and how it will shape the future of the air filtration market and leading towards reduced waste generation.
"Camfil is thrilled to announce the start of our air filtration facility that will directly contribute to our commitment to sustainability and promote reduced waste generation through recycling and reusing. We believe that this kind of initiative in manufacturing and operations can be important drivers in the sustainable development of our process and the environment” - James Lin, Managing Director, Taiwan.
