MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Filtration systems maker Donaldson Co. said Monday it will spend $5 million at its production facility in Auburn, Ala., to prepare for tighter emissions regulations.

The investment will enhance the factory's production of diesel emissions control and after-treatment products, the company said. The improvements will prepare the company to meet new Environmental Protection Agency on-road and off-road emissions mandates.

"Our new capacity investments have allowed us to take advantage of the latest manufacturing technologies and position Donaldson to better support our customers' production and quality requirements for next year and beyond," said Ted Angelo, general manager of Donaldson exhaust and emissions products.

Shares of Donaldson added 8 cents to $42.48 in morning trading.
