In line with its five-year expansion strategy to meet the anticipated growth in demand from major truck and PSV operators, Ceramex says it has seen its DPF (diesel particulate filter) cleaning volume increase by 15% year on year. The number of DPFs processed by the firm has significantly increased from before the pandemic, with regular throughput of more than 2,000 units per week. Increased logistics fleet activity both nationally and in Europe and the expansion of its customer base has contributed to the uplift in volume, the company says, helped by its ability to process a significantly larger volume of DPFs following its relocation to a new 67,000 square-foot facility in Reading in 2021.
Managing Director of Ceramex Barney Milles commented: “Our performance over the last year clearly demonstrates the demand for cleaning and remanufacturing of commercial DPFs. Having our Reading facility fully operational with scope for increased capacity positions Ceramex as a UK market leader in scalable DPF cleaning for HGVs, PSVs and off-highway vehicles.”
