G.U.D. Filters multi-million rand assembly line investment

We are proud to announce the commission of a multi-million rand new fuel filter assembly line utilising wrap filter technology at our Durban manufacturing site.

The assembly line will produce OEM quality multiport, spin-on and metal-free
filters with wrap media elements to meet growing market demand. The highest expected volume wrap filter, G1142, fits light commercial diesel applications such as the Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger.

Wrap filters have distinctly different looking media assemblies to the conventional star-shaped media filters whereby the media is wrapped around a central core much like paper layers around a tube. Wrap filter technology produces elements with significantly more surface area, allowing for better filtration of impurities such as dirt particles and moisture from the fuel. This results in improved fuel economy and engine performance.

 “We are very happy with the locally manufactured wrap filters and are confident our OEM’s and after market customers will approve of the high quality standards.” says Ian Law, Sales & Marketing Director, G.U.D. Holdings (Pty) Ltd.
