Porvair’s new £3.5 million facility gets official opening

16 Mar 2015

Porvair Filtration Group has invested in 42,000 square foot premises in New Milton, creating around 20 jobs in the process as part of a strategy to consolidate its industrial process business across one site.

New Forest MP Desmond Swayne will officially open the 42,000 square foot base at a reception on Friday 20th March.

"I congratulate Porvair Filtration Group on their record of growth and achievement, another example of excellence in UK industry. This is also a vote of confidence in New Milton as a great place to do business and I would like to thank Porvair for their continuing commitment to the town."

Commenting on the importance of the New Milton base, General Manager Mike Hughes said: “This represents a significant milestone for our business. It will increase overall capacity within the group, facilitate growth across the business and provide a platform for further expansion.

“It will strengthen our capability to meet the growing demands of our customers across a wide range of sectors including pharmaceutical, chemical and industrial processing, and food and beverage.

“This investment is a strategic step forward which will increase our capability to design and manufacture our products in line with customer expectations.  I’m confident that both our staff and customers will see our investment as a commitment to our growth ambitions and exceptional customer service.”

As well as integrating Porvair’s industrial process operations, the new facility will provide further capacity at Head Office in Segensworth to support the company’s growth plans in the Energy and Aerospace markets.

The company currently employs 50 staff in New Milton across separate units, and the new building will see staff numbers increase to 80 when Porvair moves its microfiltration business from Segensworth to the new facility in Hampshire this March.

Porvair – which has supplied the process industry with performance-driven filtration equipment for over 25 years – has spent £3.5million on purchasing and fitting out the building, turning it into a cutting edge facility, including an investment of £300,000 in cleanroom technology.

The group manufactures in both the UK and USA and has an extensive network of sales offices and distribution channels throughout the world.
