$15 million investment to strengthen Donaldson’s material science capabilities
Donaldson Company, Inc., a leading worldwide manufacturer of innovative filtration products and solutions, broke ground on a $15 million Material Research Center at its corporate headquarters in Bloomington, Minnesota.
As customers’ equipment and technology advance, Donaldson’s engineering, technology and operations staffs continually develop original solutions that anticipate and exceed these evolving requirements. The company currently holds more than 1,800 active U.S. and international patents, has over 100 technical laboratories and employs hundreds of engineers, scientists and technicians.
