Ceramex opens £3 million DPF refurbishment facility

Ceramex has ‘more than doubled’ its operating capacity with the opening of a new facility in Reading.

The company says it will be able to process more than 2,500 diesel particulate filters (DPFs) per week, at the new facility.

Ceramex commissioned part of the 67,000 square-foot Reading site as its logistics hub during the Covid-19 lockdown earlier this year, as restrictions delayed the fit-out process.

The supplier of DPF cleaning services and technology, says the opening of the new facility provided more storage capacity for DPF units, allowing for quick turnaround for deliveries and dispatch, to enable Ceramex’s former Slough facility to operate more efficiently with social distancing measures in place.

Colin Lewis, managing director of Ceramex, said: “As early signs of market recovery emerge, we are starting to return to pre-pandemic levels of DPF cleaning volume, due in part to increased logistics fleet activity.

“As this continues, Ceramex is therefore delighted to open the doors to its new DPF refurbishment facility in Reading, which will enable the business to service the growing needs of our pan-European customer base.

"This expansion will reaffirm our focus on helping customers to achieve renewed momentum and also highlight the importance of efforts being made to improve air quality by minimising vehicle emissions.”
