Purolator Celebrates 100 Years of Filters in 2023
Raleigh, N.C.- December 6, 2022- Purolator Filters (a division of MANN+HUMMEL – the leading global expert in filtration) announced today that the company will be celebrating 100 years in business upon the arrival of 2023.
Over the last century, Purolator has adopted innovative ways to grow and advance the filters the company provides. The first oil filtration system was created by Ernest Sweetland in 1923, and was named “Purolator,”- short for “pure oil later.” Notable development continued when the first “spin-on” oil filter was created in 1955, and again in 1996 when the PureONE oil filter was introduced.
Purolator’s most recent advancement came with the creation of PurolatorBOSS® Premium Cabin Air Filters with Febreze Freshness. This filter blocks and controls odors, while also preventing mold and bacteria growth on the filter. This maximum performance filtration technology also filters out virus aerosols, a vital defense mechanism in today’s environment. Additionally, it blocks up to 99% of fine particles like soot, dirt, pollen, and other allergens.
In 2012, the global filtration company MANN+HUMMEL acquired Purolator Filters, strengthening the company’s position in the filtration industry. As part of the MANN+HUMMEL group, Purolator focuses on economical utilization of resources in product development, purchasing, and waste disposal.
As 2023 approaches, Purolator has more than 2,000 filtration part numbers for automotive, light truck, and heavy-duty applications. The company continues to evolve and distribute innovative products for the automotive industry while also offering first-class service and revolutionizing the future of filtration technology.
“Helping customers understand the day-to-day impact that filters have on their vehicle’s performance is one of Purolator’s top priorities,” said Daryl Benton, vice president of sales and marketing for the automotive aftermarket with MANN+HUMMEL. “For almost a century, we have strived to educate on the importance of vehicle filtration products and provide buyers with ample resources to access this leading-edge technology. “We are thrilled to celebrate our 100-year milestone in 2023. Through continued hard work and diligence, Purolator will thrive for another 100 years.”
