Today marks the start of a new chapter in Hy-Pro’s story. It is with great pleasure that we announce the acquisition of Hy-Pro Filtration by Donaldson Company, bringing together two global leaders in the filtration industry. Hy-Pro and Donaldson have been on similar trajectories in the hydraulic, lube and fuel industries, providing innovative contamination control solutions and making industry more efficient, both operationally and environmentally, through improved reliability.

With this announcement, we understand many questions will arise and we want to assure everyone that our top priority is maintaining the culture and stability you know and expect from Hy-Pro while leveraging the collective strengths of both Hy-Pro and Donaldson in technology, industry expertise, product range, global presence, agility, and manufacturing capability to provide the best possible value to our current and future customers worldwide. Hy-Pro will continue to operate independently under the Hy-Pro Filtration brand and leadership of Aaron Hoeg, as its General Manager. Together, Hy-Pro and Donaldson will continue to bring innovation to the filtration industry while maintaining our unrelenting dedication to customer satisfaction.

“We are excited to support Hy-Pro’s dedicated team and valued customers,” said Tom Scalf, Donaldson’s senior vice president of Engine Products. “Hy-Pro’s application expertise and filtration products improve the reliability and cost-effectiveness of their customers’ systems, often by extending the life of critical equipment and expensive fluids. Hy-Pro will continue to grow its well-known brand of stationary hydraulic and lubrication systems by leveraging Donaldson’s filtration technology, global support and strength in mobile hydraulics.”

Donaldson’s innovative filtration technologies have been improving people’s lives, enhancing customers’ equipment performance and protecting the environment for over 100 years.
