75 Years of Innovation

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.
AUTOMOTIVE AND LIGHT TRUCK FILTERS
Filter maintenance is the foundation of maintaining a vehicle’s fuel economy and overall health. WIX automotive and light truck filters consistently offer the best protection and coverage in the industry for both domestic and foreign nameplate vehicles.
In fact, WIX oil filters increase engine life, because their technologically advanced construction captures 45 percent more dirt and lasts 30 percent longer than the leading brand. And, at 9 pleats of media per inch, WIX air filters last longer and capture more engine killing contaminants.
A high-quality fuel filter is more important than ever for protecting today’s advanced fuel injection systems, allowing an engine to run trouble free and at peak mile-per-gallon performance. And, our cabin air filters with BioShield® 75 are also the industry’s most technologically advanced.
HEAVY DUTY FILTERS
Our history has deep roots in heavy duty filtration. We understand what keeps maintenance managers up at night and we know how filtration can significantly impact the long-term profitability of an entire fleet.
WIX premium filters enable the lowering of long-term costs by lengthening maintenance intervals while continuing to protect vital engine parts as well as or better than traditional filters changed at shorter intervals.
That’s why WIX heavy duty filters can withstand whatever the industry demands. Testing and benchmarking proves it. And, our experienced engineers, who are responsible for more than 30 U.S. patents, ensure WIX stays ahead of every technological change in the industry.
Off-highway heavy-duty construction engines add another element to the equation as they demand even greater filter performance in efficiency, capacity and structural integrity in order to combat their harsh working environment.
