Donaldson Company was founded in 1915 when Frank Donaldson Sr. Developed a simple air cleaner to solve a Farmer's tractor engine problem.
Donaldson has always been developing next generation products and services to solve complex filtration and contamination control challenges. Donaldson has been a recognized pioneer in fine fabric technology. For over two decades, the company has manufactured and tested filter elements using fibers less than a micron width. In the transportation market with tightening environmental regulations and improved aerodynamics nessisitating decreasing sizes and weights, our R&D efforts have produced smaller, lighter and more efficient filter and filtration system. With over 1600 active patents and industry-leading material and product design, our employees are vital to Donaldson's 100- year history of success.
