Donaldson Co., a worldwide manufacturer of filtration solutions and products, announced the opening of the company’s expanded facility in Leuven, Belgium. The facility houses the company’s European administrative and engineering operations. Donaldson opened the Belgium-based Technical Center in 1976 to support sales and operations in the European, Middle East and North African markets.
The facility provides engineering and testing expertise for the company’s industrial and engine product lines. The company says the new 40,000-square-foot addition, which more than doubles capacity of the existing test facility, broadens testing capabilities to support its engine filtration technologies for liquid, crankcase and air filtration – plus noise vibration and exhaust after treatment.
“Donaldson is committed to making investments in filtration technologies that support our customers globally and within local and regional markets,” says Tod Carpenter, vice president, Europe and Middle East. “As our customers’ equipment and technology advances, Donaldson continues to develop filtration solutions that anticipate and exceed their evolving requirements. The expansion of our state-of-the-art facility in Belgium provides increased global testing capacity while upgrading our capability to design new and innovative filtration technologies.”
