GURABO, Puerto Rico - Camfil Farr, a major manufacturer of air filters, announced that it is expanding its resources serving the Caribbean region with the opening of a branch and warehouse operation in Gurabo, Puerto Rico.

According to the company, the new branch is being established to better serve the company’s existing and expanding customer base in markets such as the health care, medical device, biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. “Specifically,” said newly-appointed branch manager, Milton Robles, “we will now have greater capabilities for both sales support and warehousing, so that the filters used most often in these sectors can be supplied immediately. This fast service,” he added, “along with the fact that the company sells direct to end users, gives Camfil Farr’s customers a significant advantage in both product availability and life cycle cost.”

Camfil Farr is an air filtration leader within the biotech and pharmaceutical industry, many of which have multiple manufacturing facilities on the island, making Puerto Rico one of the major manufacturing hubs. Victor Rodriguez heads up the Camfil Farr APC (Air Pollution Control) division, specializing in dust collection applications. Rodriguez said, “We can now combine our Hemipleat cartridge technology with Camfil Farr’s superior HVAC air filtration products and offer the ‘complete package’ to our customers.”
