"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."
