The Wix Filters brand is now part of the MANN+HUMMEL family of innovative filtration technology. This global powerhouse has 11 facilities in eight countries and produces more than 210 million filters annually for customers in 80 countries. The parent company of WIX Filters and Filtron was acquired by Mann+Hummel, with Keith Wilson, formerly CEO and President of Affinia, retaining his executive role as president and CEO of Mann+Hummel Filtration Technology. MANN AND HUMMEL is the manufacturer of Wix oil filters, but they also produce other types of filters such as air filters, cabin filters and fuel filters.
Wix oil filters are renowned for their premium quality, thanks to their unique designs. They are suitable for light, heavy and racing oil filtration in the motor industry, as well as for extreme conditions and high oil temperatures. The Wix XP filter is designed for those who use synthetic oil and often carry heavy trailers, boats or heavy equipment. The history of MANN AND HUMMEL dates back to 1942 when two creators devoted themselves to extensive research and development of filters.
The end of the 1940s was a turning point when Volkswagen Beetle rolled off the production line and MANN AND HUMMEL produced large volumes of oil filters for vehicles. Unlike other companies that create one or two oil filters for their audience, the Wix brand took the oil filter set to another level. MANN AND HUMMEL manufactures more than 210 million filters a year and has customers in more than 80 countries. When World War II broke out, Stuttgart-based piston producer Mahle offered the engine filters to the textile company, an offer that laid the foundation for the company to be MANN AND HUMMEL.
The Wix Filter range is aimed at drivers using conventional engine oil, synthetic or a mixture of the two types. By using specialized glass media, the filters trap dirt without restricting the oil flow of your vehicle. EcoLast filters offer twice the standard oil drain intervals, giving fleet owners massive savings. The company manufactures its Wix oil filters in several countries besides the U.
S., including China, Mexico, Venezuela, Ukraine and Poland. Now more than ever, many customers are enthusiastic about the impeccable qualities of Wix oil filters.
