MINNEAPOLIS, MN – NOVEMBER 26, 2012 – Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE: DCI), the world leader in designing, developing and manufacturing advanced filtration solutions, has strengthened support and services for aerospace customers throughout Asia by naming Avio-Diepen as their major distribution partner of aftermarket commercial fixed wing aerospace products in that region.
