Donaldson Acquires Aerospace Filtration
Donaldson Co. announced yesterday that it has acquired Aerospace Filtration Systems (AFS) of St. Louis, Mo. The deal, which was inked on Tuesday, calls for AFS to become a wholly owned subsidiary of the worldwide supplier of filters and support. The marriage isn’t new for the two companies; they were selected as a team last year to supply integral barrier filters (IBF) for the Bell 429 and the recently canceled 417. AFS is displaying the filters at Booth No. 609.
