Donaldson Announces Continued Growth and Strong IBF Sales at HAI HELI-EXPO 2023

Donaldson reports strong growth and sales of its popular and highly effective inlet barrier filter (IBF).

ATLANTA, Georgia (March 8, 2023) - Donaldson Aerospace & Defense (Booth #C3626), a division of the Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE: DCI), reports it has experienced strong growth and sales of its popular and highly effective inlet barrier filter (IBF), due in part to an increase in aircraft sales.

A growth in helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) overseas has led to increased sales of aircraft utilizing Donaldson’s IBF. Bell orders for IBFs have also increased based on aircraft sales, especially the Bell 407, 429 and 505, as have orders for the Leonardo 119 by the U.S. Navy. Additionally, IBF orders from MD Helicopters have begun again after a pre-pandemic halt.

“The industry is strong, and Donaldson continues to support the production needs of all the major helicopter OEMs,” says Tom Newman, Director Business Rotorcraft Sales at Donaldson Aerospace & Defense. “As a result, we increased our forecast numbers for total segment sales. 

To support the increased demand, the company has updated forecasting, expanded supply chain support, improved overall response time, and invested in customer service support personnel.

In addition, Donaldson is experiencing more OEM development projects than it has at any other time in its history and today has more standard production units in the field than ever.
