Purolator Filters announced that the company will be kicking off its 100-year anniversary celebration at this year’s Automotive Aftermarket Product Expo (AAPEX), according to the company's news release.
In 2023, Purolator will be commemorating 100 years of “Purifying Your World.” In 1923, Ernest Sweetland developed and patented the first oil filtration system, calling it the “Purolator,” short for the words “pure oil later.” The company continued to evolve, manufacture, and distribute filters, such as air, cabin air, and fuel filters for the automotive industry.
MANN+HUMMEL acquired Purolator Filters in 2012.
Most recently, Purolator has maintained these assurances with the creation of PurolatorBOSS Premium Cabin Air Filters with Febreze Freshness.
“Purolator’s goal to strive for quality and innovative products began in 1923, and still continues nearly a century later,” said Daryl Benton, VP of sales and marketing for the automotive aftermarket with MANN+HUMMEL. “We are thrilled to celebrate our 100-year milestone in 2023. Purolator has been able to maintain its role as a market leader with leading-edge technology and global manufacturing best practices. Through continued hard work and diligence, Purolator will thrive for another 100 years.”
