Company Values

CFW aims to provide the best overall value in integrated process air systems. We recognise that costs, product quality, service and development are interconnected elements which must come together to this end.

For every project undertaken, all relevant variables are taken into account. We strive to minimise the lifecycle cost of the product – including maintenance, energy costs and labour costs – and not only the capital cost.

Providing excellent service is another key component of how we add value. We provide a comprehensive set of services, ranging from first enquiry to after-sales service, and our development of our own technology and investment in our manufacturing facilities enables us to provide excellent backup and support to customers. Support services include fan optimisation for energy use.

We strive to use international best practices in designing and manufacturing products. To remain sustainable in the global market, our products are continually improved by assessing the needs of customers through market research and by innovative product development.
