The new 140 000 sq ft Donaldson facility will manufacture air filters for the Americas market.

When the new air filter plant is completed, the existing Donaldson plant in Aguascalientes, which currently manufactures both air and liquid filters, will specialize in liquid filters.

“The ongoing economic recovery, plus our market share gains, has driven our replacement filter sales to record levels over the past year. Based on our Strategic Growth Plan, this new plant will allow us to expand both our air and liquid filter manufacturing capacity to meet our projected OEM and Aftermarket Customer demand throughout the Americas,” said Joe Lehman, vice president of global operations at Donaldson.
