Air filter manufacturer Donaldson Co. opens its third plant in Aguascalientes
Minnesota-based air filter manufacturer Donaldson Company earlier this week inaugurated its third manufacturing plant in the municipality of Jesus Maria, Aguascalientes, Central Mexico.
The company invested US$ 26 million to build the 39,000 square-meter facility where 145 workers were hired in addition to the 1,300 employees already in its two existing plants.
An output capacity of 20 million filters per year is expected once the plant becomes fully operational.
The president and CEO, Tod E. Carpenter, attended the ceremony where he assured that Aguascalientes is attractive to invest, while thanking the state authorities for contributing to the company’s growth.
The company produces a wide variety of filters for a myriad of industries, however, this plant will be focused on the automotive and machinery segment, in which companies such as Caterpillar, John Deere, CNH, Volvo, Daimler, Nissan, Volkswagen, Chrysler, General Motors, Navistar and Kenworth are part of its client portfolio.
