We stand together in these difficult times - Camfil's respiratory protection is now CE marked!
We are passionate about clean air and believe in helping people and the community around us by sharing our core competencies. In March 2020, we started helping the healthcare community by manufacturing and testing respiratory protection. The hospital environment is one of the core competence areas for Camfil as we have successfully delivered filter and ventilation solutions to various hospitals and care facilities around the globe in the past many decades including operating theaters, laboratories, reception rooms, intensive care units, and pharmacies.
In 2020, Camfil delivered CamProtect respiratory protection, primarily to the Stockholm Region along with other institutions in the healthcare. The product CamProtect is now CE-certified by Force Certification A/S.
The idea for a mask took shape within Camfil when the corona outbreak first emerged. As experts in air filtration solutions, we simply could not just stand by – so we prepared to act. Ideas for respiratory protection masks began to come in from our offices in Malaysia, Spain, Slovakia, Sweden, and others. The project then gained momentum through Camfil’s Global Tech Center in Trosa, Sweden with other areas of the Swedish organization. Since respiratory protection is not part of Camfil’s regular manufacturing output, we kicked off a large-scale internal initiative to get up and running with a prototype. Experts from product development, testing, materials, purchasing, and production participated. The prototype was then tested in one of our laboratories.
Product development in the filter industry usually takes several months or even years. For this fast pace development, it took plenty of hard work to redeploy production lines while finding partners and suppliers who could help make the idea a reality as soon as possible. The production started in Trosa, Sweden, and CamProtect respiratory protection masks became a reality. That was the beginning of the product CamProtect.
