Donaldson to build filter manufacturing plant in Poland

July 8, 2013

Donaldson Co. Inc., Bloomington, MN, is planning to build a new filter manufacturing plant in Skarbimierz, Poland to serve the European and Russian markets. The new 108,000 square foot plant, which is expected to open in 2015, will produce heavy duty air filters for both the on-road and off-road equipment markets.

The new Polish plant is Donaldson’s third manufacturing facility in Central and Eastern Europe. Donaldson already has two plants in the Czech Republic—the Klasterec facility was opened in 2003, and the Kadan plant was added in 2006.

“We are very pleased to add this new, state-of-the-art facility to our extensive manufacturing and distribution base in Europe and have appreciated the ongoing support of the Polish government and local Skarbimierz officials,” says Wim Vermeersch, vice president, Europe, Middle East and Northern Africa. “Based on our company’s Strategic Growth Plan, this new plant will allow us to further increase our filter manufacturing capacity to meet our projected OEM and aftermarket customer demand throughout Europe and Russia.”
