New Delhi: Donaldson Company, a manufacturer of filtration systems and parts, inaugurated it's expanded manufacturing facility at Manesar in Gurgaon,  Haryana.

The 2009 capacity enhancement, announced in July 2009, triples the size of the previous plant and includes an in-house Engine product design facility for system solutions sought after by local OEM and aftermarket customers.

The new 70,000 square foot facility primarily produces air filtration products (such as engine air intake systems and air filter service elements) and hydraulic filtration systems for the engine and vehicle and gas turbine markets.

"With the significant investment in this expansion, we will be very well positioned to serve our Customers throughout India," said Bill Cook, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Donaldson.

The Gurgaon, India facility opened in 1994 to manufacture Gas Turbine Engine intake systems and air filters. Manufacturing capacity was expanded in 1999 with the establishment of the Engine Systems & Parts’ Radial Seal air intake filtration manufacturing capability.

"India is a thriving market for Donaldson filtration technologies. We anticipate that this in-country manufacturing presence will bolster sales and after-sales service to our OEM, independent aftermarket distribution and end-user customers in the region and around the world. We completed our expansion of the facility on schedule and are pleased to host this grand opening," said Jay Ward, senior vice president, Engine Products at Donaldson Company.

A facility in South India is also on the cards. The company will consider setting up the additional facility if there is an expected increase in demand. The demand is likely to increase, in view of new emission laws, expected to come into force sometime next year.
