Porvair Filtration Group has announced the expansion of its UK facilities in New Milton near Christchurch.
The new factory purchased this month will allow a consolidation of Porvair’s business in the UK and provides much needed manufacturing capacity to support the future growth of the business.
Porvair Filtration Group will consolidate its activities in the market for industrial filtration and separation products on the new site.
Tom Liddell, managing director of Porvair Filtration Group said: “At more than 40,000 square feet, the new facility will allow us to integrate a number of activities within smaller units in the area, gaining efficiency in our operations and giving us space to sustain our growth.
“The investment is significant, but it is consistent with the sizeable growth opportunity we see for our products in the industrial process market.”
The company has supplied the process industry for more than 25 years with filtration equipment such as elements, cartridges and vessels.
Porvair Filtration Group also provides highly specialised filtration solutions for use throughout the manufacturing process and have proven filtration solutions for the production of chemicals such as nitric acid, maleic anhydride, caprolactum, hydrogen peroxide, sulphuric acid, phosphoric acid, magnesium nitrate, as well as HDPE and LLDPE.
