UFI FILTERS COMES TO AUSTRALIA
The company’s products have been proven in motorsport competition around the world
Founded in 1971, UFI Filters says it is a global leader in filtration technology and thermal management. The Group, headquartered in Italy, counts 19 industrial sites around the world with over 4,000 people in 19 countries, and it is now bringing its 50-year OEM experience to the Australian Aftermarket sector with the opening of a new branch in Sydney.
UFI Filters supplies a full range of air, oil, fuel, cabin, hydraulic and coolant filters as well as thermal management systems to the automotive sector, covering cars and motorcycles as well as commercial, heavy-duty and agricultural vehicles.
The company is the developer and manufacturer of its own filtration media which it says allows it to create unique and groundbreaking products.
UFI Filters explains it is research-driven, holding 237 patents and reinvesting more than five percent of its revenue in R&D. It has 168 specialised technicians in three Innovation and Research Centers in Italy, India and China.
Recognised in motorsport
UFI Filters says its expertise has been recognised for more than 40 years by the Formula 1 world. In fact, it says nine of the 10 F1 Teams use its products and more than 110 UFI filters are used in every race.
The company supplies a total of 3,000 filters every year for this technologically demanding market, from engine oil filters to air filters and fuel filters (low and high pressure), hydraulic filters and “last chance filters” for the circuits containing cooling water and hydraulic oil.
UFI says its products are in high demand also in other world-famous competitions such as Indycar, Formula 2, Formula 3, GTE and Superbike.
In addition, UFI Filters says its core values, passion, innovation and excellence are found in its brand Ambassador, British champion Archie Hamilton, who drives a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, in the Porsche Sprint Challenge GB.
The on-road version of that same car is equipped with a UFI oil filter module on both the 2.0 and 2.5-litre versions, a filter that is also available to the company’s aftermarket customers.
UFI Filters says this is further proof that the expertise built up in the racing field can be found in all of UFI’s range, both for the OEMs – 95 percent of which it says worldwide choose UFI as supplier – and for the Aftermarket.
One of the latest on-road projects of the Group involves the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 that, with a total of 819 HP and 720 Nm of maximum torque, is the most powerful Lambo ever produced. UFI Filters proudly supplies this supercar with the double airbox and oil filter.
