Oct. 28, 2022

Purolator was established in 1923, and it will begin its 100-year anniversary celebration during AAPEX. 

Oct. 28, 2022—Purolator Filters announced that it will begin its 100-year anniversary celebration at AAPEX next week in Las Vegas. 

According to a press release, Ernest Sweetland developed and patented the first oil filtration system in 1923. Sweetland called it "Purolator," which is inspired by the phrase, "pure oil later." MANN+HUMMEL acquired Purolator Filters in 2012. 

“Purolator’s goal to strive for quality and innovative products began in 1923, and still continues nearly a century later,” said Daryl Benton, vice president of sales and marketing for the automotive aftermarket with MANN+HUMMEL via the press release. “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.”

Purolator has over 2,000 filtration part numbers for automotive, light truck and heavy-duty sectors. Celebrate 100 years with Purolator at AAPEX booth #A1843 during the show next week from November 1-3, 2022.
