Camfil Farr Australia announces the appointment of Magnus Yngen to the position of president and CEO at parent company Camfil (Stockholm, Sweden).
According to Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC), he succeeds Alan O'Connell, who held the post for the past 12 years and was instrumental in taking Camfil to its current position as the global leader in the air filtration industry.
A member of the Camfil board for the last year, Yngen 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 specialises in industrial dust collection equipment. A planned expansion program now sees the popular Farr Gold Series product line being rolled out globally and 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 in its Jonesboro, Arkansas headquarters as well as a newly opened plant in the United Kingdom. The company is currently celebrating 50 years in the business of clean air solutions.
