New plants to serve China’s filtration needs

May 17, 2012

Facilities represent Donaldson's second manufacturing campus in China.

Donaldson Company, Inc. Bloomington, MN, will begin construction on two new manufacturing plants in Xuzhou, China, to serve the fast-growing filtration needs of China's diesel-powered equipment and industrial markets. Each of the new plants will be 140,000 square feet. One facility will be dedicated to manufacturing air filters while the other plant will specialize in liquid filters. These two new plants, expected to open in CY14, represent Donaldson's second manufacturing campus in China. Donaldson's successful first China campus in Wuxi opened in 1997 and currently has four manufacturing plants.

"We are very pleased to add these two new plants to our existing manufacturing and distribution base in China and have appreciated the wonderful support of the local Xuzhou Economic & Technological Development Zone officials through the planning process," says Eugene Wu, Donaldson's president of Asia Pacific. "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."

"We warmly welcome Donaldson, a leading worldwide filtration solutions company, to build manufacturing plants in Xuzhou," says Zhang Fu Ning, standing committee member, Xuzhou Municipal Government and party secretary of Xuzhou Economic & Technological Development Zone. "With Xuzhou's reputation as the capital of construction machinery in China, Donaldson's new plants will streamline the supply chain for our local construction equipment manufacturers. We will fully support Donaldson's development in the Xuzhou Economic Development Zone."
