Sales surge for air-filter manufacturer
Air-filtration specialist Jasun Filtration has enjoyed its most successful year in its 33-year history. Last year’s turnover grew by 13%. The growth in carbon filters was 66%, individual panel filters grew by 14%, and sales of filter media were up to 29%. The sharp increase in demand has resulted in the company increasing its workforce by 20% and investing £120 000 in capital equipment, including a new roll former in its Sittingbourne factory and new metalwork machinery at Bridgwater. A nightshift has been introduced, and the company aims to treble the number of staff on this shift during the course of this year, enabling orders to be taken with short lead times.
