Company History

Donaldson Company was founded in 1915 when Frank Donaldson Sr. developed a simple air cleaner to solve a farmer’s tractor problems. Success and innovation in agricultural equipment led directly to opportunities in the construction and mining markets and later to the truck market.

By the 1960s, Donaldson had established worldwide sales and distribution with established operations in England, Belgium and Australia, today we service the needs of our customers through operations in 19 countries.

The acquisition of Torit® Company in the early 1970s propelled Donaldson into the dust collection business. Our industrial air filtration technology is now applied to a variety of industries and environments, including: welding, pharmaceuticals, woodworking, chemical, metal fabrication, foundries, food processing and composites.

During the 1970s, we applied our technology to create innovative filtration solutions to clean inlet air for gas turbines. Today, we create and manufacture air filtration systems for stationary gas turbines and other rotating equipment used in power generation, oil and gas production and transmission and petrochemical industries.

Today, Donaldson continues to innovate and explore ways to help solve customer problems and apply technology to new markets.
