JONESBORO, Ark. — Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) announced that its parent, Camfil, Stockholm, Sweden, has appointed Magnus Yngen to the position of president and CEO. He succeeds Alan O’Connell, who held the post for the past 12 years.

Yngen has been a member of the Camfil board for the last year and the company said he brings to his new position a solid international business background from several industries. Prior to joining Camfil, he worked for the Electrolux Group, with management responsibility for its European operations, and was later appointed CEO of the Husqvarna Group.

The Camfil APC operation specializes in industrial dust collection. The United States has traditionally been Camfil’s primary market for dust collection equipment, but through a planned expansion program, its Farr Gold Series® product line is being rolled out globally and is now marketed in Europe, Latin America, Australia, and Asia under the direction of Camfil APC president Lee Morgan, who reports to Magnus Yngen. Camfil APC operates a production unit at its Jonesboro, Ark., headquarters as well as a newly opened plant in the United Kingdom.
