Half Century of Innovation Brings Manufacturer of Air Filters Back to its Roots

Leading air filter company embraces its original name as it embraces the future

NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- (Camfil - Air Filters News) As it celebrates its 50th Anniversary in 2013, the world's leading provider of clean air solutions goes back to its roots -- and its original name: Camfil.

Since its acquisition of Farr Company in 2000 -- part of Camfil's extensive expansion into North America -- the company had used the trade name Camfil Farr. In the intervening years, Camfil had become well known not just for its commercial filters but for a stream of innovations that brought advances in sustainability and energy efficiency to the industry. As such, the company's board decided that the time was right -- particularly with the 50th anniversary approaching -- to go back to the original Camfil name.

Camfil was founded in 1963 as a joint venture between Luftkonditionering and Cambridge Air Filter Company. Over the years, the company has expanded not only its geographical reach and customer base, but its focus on creating cutting-edge products that do a better job keeping dangerous particles out of the indoor environment while using less energy and creating less waste. To that end, Camfil now operates a worldwide network of state-of-the-art R&D facilities, including a newly opened research center in Trosa, Sweden.

Products -- including high-efficiency air filters that have already helped customers reduce their HVAC energy consumption by 25 to 50 percent -- are but one prong of Camfil's efforts in bringing the best possible clean air solutions to users. The company has also launched tools -- such as its sophisticated LCC (Life Cycle Cost) analysis software -- that enable customers to better understand the long-term impact of different air filtration products, both on energy use and costs.

Camfil's unique combination of products and tools have helped hospitals, manufacturers, biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, hotels, educational institutions, and property managers across the globe home in on clean air solutions that don't just keep the air clean, but boost the environment -- and their own bottom line -- as well.

The world leader in air filtration systems, Camfil provides clean air solutions for hospitals, hotels, office buildings, educational institutions, and pharmaceutical and biotech companies. We provide the tools to achieve sustainability, maintain high air quality, and reduce airborne infections -- all while lowering total cost of ownership. Camfil customers go green without ever sacrificing performance.
