Donaldson Australasia , a global provider of filtration systems recently hosted a visit from Stefan Loebbert, Director of Industrial Air Filtration (IAF) and Compressed Air & Process (CAP) for Donaldson Asia Pacific.
Coinciding with the company’s annual sales conferences, the visit gave Mr. Loebbert the opportunity to update the group on recent investments made in the region to strengthen the product portfolio as well as the company’s ability to customise designs for customers within the Asia Pacific region.
Historically, many of Donaldson Australasia’s products have come from design centres in North America or Europe, which often resulted in extended lead times or the need for modifications to meet local requirements.
Mr Loebbert informed the group that a new technical centre had been established out of Donaldson’s facility in Wuxi, China, which was dedicated to meeting the needs of the countries within Asia and the Pacific.
According to Mr Loebbert, the new technical centre would complement their Australian manufacturing facility as well as their sales and applications engineering teams.
Key benefits for their customers include an improved supply chain, increased capability to meet stringent local requirements and the ability to provide custom solutions more effectively.
Donaldson continues to deliver superior technology resulting in reduced equipment footprints, improved filtration efficiency and lower operating costs.
Additionally, the investments made in the region will now help the company deliver those benefits to customers faster and more cost effectively.
