J.A. Baldwin was one of the first to recognize the importance of improving mobile filtration. He designed a cartridge lube filter and began production in Wisconsin in 1936. By 1952, Baldwin needed to expand in order for J.A. Baldwin Manufacturing Company to compete for the big orders, but was unable to do so in Wisconsin, and so the expansion began. Between 1964 and 1981, the Baldwin Filter plant was expanded nine times to accommodate the rapid expansion. In 1981, Baldwin was purchased by J.L. Clark Manufacturing Co. (now CLARCOR) and the company began to setup operations internationally to what is now a global company with operations everywhere from Mexico to Marocco.
Today, Baldwin’s team of engineers continually looks for ways to improve their products. Working from the basic filtration design and using the latest technology, like 3-D CAD modeling, the engineering group leads the way with innovative, patented designs such as Radial Seal air filters, self-venting drain valves for fuel/water separators and controlled release coolant products.
Baldwin's goal is to design filters that meet or exceed OEM specification. To back up its commitment to quality, Baldwin Filters has achieved and maintains TS 16949 and ISO 9001 certifications in its facilities.
