Donaldson Co., a global manufacturer of filtration products, broke ground on a $15 million Material Research Center at its corporate campus in Bloomington, Minnesota.

With the addition of the Material Research Center, Donaldson will add six researchers and engineers to the company’s headquarters population of 1,100 employees.

The architect for the planned 17,000-square-foot building is TKDA and the construction company is Gardner Builders. The center is scheduled to open in November.
