Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE: DCI), is pleased to announce the construction of a new filter manufacturing plant in Skarbimierz, Poland to serve the filtration needs of its European and Russian Customers. The new plant will be 108,000 square feet (10,000 square meters) with additional capacity for future expansion.
The facility will be dedicated to the production of heavy duty air filters for both the on-road and off-road equipment markets. This new Polish plant, expected to open in CY15, represents Donaldson’s third manufacturing presence in Central and Eastern Europe. Donaldson’s very successful Czech Republic operations were started in Klášterec in 2003 followed by Kadaň 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," said 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.”
