J.A. Baldwin was one of the first to recognise the importance of improving mobile filtration. He designed a better lube filter and began production with nine employees. Today, Baldwin Filters has grown into an international company with an increasing global presence and a continued commitment to quality. Over the years, Baldwin Filters has expanded and refined its line of quality filters to meet the demands of today’s global market. Baldwin offers heavy-duty protection under tough operating conditions for over-the-road commercial vehicles, off-road construction, mining and logging equipment, as well as industrial, agricultural and marine applications. This heavy-duty philosophy has also been applied to the production of filters for passenger cars, light-duty trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles around the world. Coverage and consistency drive Baldwin’s growth in the heavy-duty market. “When it comes to coverage,we build the widest range of heavy-duty filters in the industry. Our coverage is strengthened by our ability to consistently manufacture quality filters.”
In early 2017 Clarcor, the parent company of Baldwin, was acquired by the massive Parker-Hannifin filtration group for $4.3 Billion USD – Cash. This highly complementary combination establishes Parker among the top filtration companies in the world and the supplier of the most comprehensive offering of filtration solutions offered under a wide range of strong product and service brands.
Filter Supplies was one of the first companies to begin supplying Baldwin to the Australian market in the early eighties. Initially we imported container loads of stock ourselves from the Baldwin Plant in Kearney Nebraska, then later from Baldwin’s Australian Distribution Centre. We are one of Australia’s largest suppliers of Baldwin filters to the marketplace.
