US filtration solutions maker considering a factory in Poland


Donaldson, a global manufacturer of filtration systems, has set its sights on Skarbimierz (Opolskie voivodship) as the preferred location for a new factory of automotive filters, according to media reports in the Czech Republic and Poland. The US firm reportedly abandoned plans to build the plant in Slovakia after being offered a more generous state aid package north of the border. The value of the proposed project in Skarbimierz is around €50m and it is expected to create at least 130 jobs, according to unofficial sources cited by Puls Biznesu. Donaldson is eyeing two land plots with a total area of 13 hectares at a former Soviet military air strip in Skarbimierz, which belong to the Walbrzych Special Economic Zone.

Local authorities declined to comment, stating that it was premature to remark on the project at this point.

Headquartered in Minneapolis, Donaldson has a direct presence in about 40 countries worldwide.
