Purolator to Celebrate 100th Anniversary in 2023

Purolator to Celebrate 100th Anniversary in 2023

The first oil filtration system was created in 1923, and was named “Purolator,” short for “pure oil later.”

Purolator Filters, division of MANN+HUMMEL, announced the company will be celebrating 100 years in business at the onset of 2023. 

Over the last century, Purolator says it has adopted innovative ways to grow and advance the filters the company provides. The first oil filtration system was created by Ernest Sweetland in 1923, and was named “Purolator,” short for “pure oil later.” Notable development continued when the first “spin-on” oil filter was created in 1955, and again in 1996 when the PureONE oil filter was introduced, the company says.

Purolator adds its most recent advancement came with the creation of PurolatorBOSS Premium Cabin Air Filters with Febreze Freshness. This filter blocks and controls odors, while also preventing mold and bacteria growth on the filter. This maximum performance filtration technology also filters out virus aerosols, a vital defense mechanism in today’s environment, according to Purolator, and it blocks up to 99% of fine particles like soot, dirt, pollen, and other allergens.

In 2012, the global filtration company MANN+HUMMEL acquired Purolator Filters, strengthening the company’s position in the filtration industry, according to Purolator. As part of the MANN+HUMMEL group, Purolator focuses on economical utilization of resources in product development, purchasing, and waste disposal.

“Helping customers understand the day-to-day impact that filters have on their vehicle’s performance is one of Purolator’s top priorities,” said Daryl Benton, vice president of sales and marketing for the automotive aftermarket with MANN+HUMMEL. “For almost a century, we have strived to educate on the importance of vehicle filtration products and provide buyers with ample resources to access this leading-edge technology. “We are thrilled to celebrate our 100-year milestone in 2023. Through continued hard work and diligence, Purolator will thrive for another 100 years.”
