Wix Filters has introduced more than 360 new part numbers in the first quarter of 2012, 24 of which are for the heavy-duty industry. More than 300 of the remaining parts are for hydraulics.
“Wix Filters’ product development is constantly expanding,” says Donald Chilton, North American product development manager. “Our industrial filtration product line is vital for hydraulic, process, compressor, off-line and moisture control applications, and our growth in hydraulic applications is due to our customer demand. Our hydraulic line now offers more than 8,750 hydraulic filters.”
Wix also has introduced a variety of new domestic and foreign nameplate applications and says it is on track to release more than 1,000 new parts by the end of 2012.
“We will continue to generate new products to extend our global coverage,” says Mike Harvey, brand manager. “Wix is known for quality and innovation, and we are committed to continually improving filter design and performance to meet our customer demands in the light-duty, heavy-duty and hydraulic categories.”
