Donaldson to acquire UAE filter manufacturer Northern Technical

Northern Technical is expected to have sales of approximately US$22 million in calendar year 2014.

After the acquisition is completed, Donaldson will manage its Europe, Middle East and Africa Gas Turbine business from its Abu Dhabi branch office.

"The acquisition will allow us to leverage Northern Technical’s strong customer relationships in the Middle East, the largest gas turbine market in the world, with significant continued growth expected over the next decade,” said Tod Carpenter, Donaldson’s chief operating officer. “ The acquisition will also broaden our product depth as Northern Technical has unique technology that we will leverage into new, first-fit air intake offerings for our customers. Northern Technical also has a full line of air filters which we can add to our global product portfolio.”
