Sustainability is a large part of our future
Camfil Farr want to become the first really sustainable air filtration company in the world. To achieve this objective, 2009 we launched an internal program and published our first corporate sustainability report on a voluntary basis.
We took these initiatives because we believe in sustainability. Our efforts in this area confirm what we have been doing for almost half a century: greening the operations of our customers by providing air filtration products with the lowest energy consumption and life cycle costs while improving the environment, human health and productivity.
We are proud that no other air filtration manufacturer has yet to achieve a track record like ours in sustainability.
The Camfil Farr Group has its roots in the Swedish company Camfil AB, founded in 1963 by Gösta Larson as a joint venture with Cambridge Filtration Corporation (United States), with operations in Trosa, Sweden, about 70 km south of Stockholm. The company is headquartered in Stockholm today, while Trosa still serves as the production, sales and distribution base for the Swedish subsidiary and one of the main R&D centres for the Group.
After 20 years of expansion in Europe, Camfil became a wholly owned family business in 1983, when Cambridge’s shareholding was acquired.
The Larson family, together with the Markman family, were the sole owners of Camfil Farr up to 2000, when a Swedish private equity company received a minority interest in connection with the acquisition of Farr in the U.S., after which Camfil became Camfil Farr.
This minority shareholding was redeemed in 2011 and Camfil Farr became a 100-percent-owned family business again.
