One of the plants will focus on air filters while the other plant will specialise in liquid filters.
 
This will be Donaldson’s second manufacturing campus in China. Donaldson currently has four manufacturing plants at its first China campus in Wuxi which opened in 1997.
 
“During the last 15 years we have developed strong relationships with many local original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket customers. As the industrial and diesel-powered equipment markets continue to develop and expand in China, these new plants will allow us to both further increase our air filter manufacturing capacity and establish our first Chinese-based liquid filtration manufacturing capacity to meet our projected Chinese Customer demand,” said Eugene Wu, Donaldson’s president of Asia Pacific.
 
The two new Donaldson filter plants are expected to open in 2014.
