Cedar Rapids, Iowa – September 9, 2022 –
We have announced today that Global Filter will expand its manufacturing footprint into a new facility and headquarters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The new headquarters address is 1201 Continental Pl NE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 52402. The expansion will bring our two previous production sites and offices into one facility. The new headquarters will allow the Global Filter business to grow and increase production capabilities. The unification of our Global Filter team will streamline our internal communication to provide better support and improved communication to our customers. The new site is 55,000 square feet larger than the combination of our previous two buildings. We have also added new production machinery which includes a new membrane manufacturing line, a new pleater, fully automated rinse, and testing equipment, and we will be upgrading our high-purity water system to support the increased output. The new assets are expected to increase our production capacity by 300%. The transition is already underway, and we expect to be fully moved in and completing all orders from the new facility by mid-September.
Moving into a larger facility with new equipment and all of our teams in one building will allow us to continue to grow with our customers and support them with greater capabilities. Our goal is to solve process filtration problems while providing the best service and lead time available. Helping us make the world safer, healthier, and more productive.
Here at Global Filter, we currently employ approximately 60 full-time employees and are looking to hire more for the new headquarters. We will be able to accommodate over 100 employees from the surrounding community to support the facility, which will manufacture the Global Filter product range. With increased manufacturing capabilities, customers can expect to see order turnaround times back down to 15-30 days by year-end. Faster delivery times mean that customers can reduce their on-hand filter inventory, allowing customers to spend resources where it matters most.
Some of the largest companies in the world trust Global Filter with their filter requirements because of our world-class service and industry-best lead times.
