75 Years of Filter Innovations
In 1939, WIX Filtration Corp. was one of the first companies in the world to understand
that engines just don’t run very long without clean oil. During our storied history
WIX has driven product innovation at every turn – most famous is the spin-on oil
filter, a design that we invented and patented in 1954 and subsequently became the
standard throughout the world.
With deep manufacturing roots in Gastonia, N.C., WIX manufactures filters for everything
from the family sedan to megaton earthmovers.
From light duty oil filters that hold 45 percent more dirt than the competition
to revolutionary oil filters for big rigs that more than double oil life and industrial
filtration products that keep plant machinery up and running, WIX puts its engineering
and manufacturing acumen to the test in every product category.
While reading about our products you’ll see terms like glass-enhanced cellulose
media, full metal base plates, coiled steel springs, spiral center tubes, pleats-per-inch
and silicone anti-drain back valves – product attributes that keep WIX steps ahead
of the competition.
