"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."

Founded in 1986, Hy-Pro is based in Anderson, Indiana, and has 110 employees. The company generates annual revenue of approximately $25 million through sales of filtration systems and replacement parts for a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, metals processing and power generation.

"Like Donaldson, Hy-Pro has demonstrated a commitment to product innovation and a high level of customer support to solve their customers' filtration problems. We welcome Hy-Pro's employees and customers, and we look forward to continuing to grow the Hy-Pro business with them."
