Welcome to episode 10 of Hy-Pro's Factoryside Chat Podcast. This is part one of the podcast on Diesel Fuel Contaminants, why it is important now more than ever, and how to mitigate both particulate and water contamination. Hy-Pro's Scott Howard leads this discussion, and Jim Simonton of Donaldson joins as his guest on this podcast. The discussion centers around supply chain challenges and human capital shortages impacting trucking and other industries and why it is so important to have clean fuel to keep the engines running longer and cheaper. In addition, these efforts will help with efficiency efforts, another cost saver.
In the first episode on diesel (# 10), the focus is turned to why clean diesel is essential. We will also discuss the fact that many think their diesel is clean and dry, but in many cases, this is not the case. And proactive mitigation measures can save your organization a lot of time and money.

In this episode, Hy-Pro’s General Manager, Aaron Hoeg, and Strategic Accounts Manager, Scott Howard, will discuss Hy-Pro’s driving philosophy, “Partners for Life,” regarding our customer relationships. Aaron has been with the company since the early 90s and Scott for 20 years. Hy-Pro was started as a family-owned business in the 80s and became a division of Donaldson Filtration in 2017. From Hy-Pro’s inception through today, it's been essential that our customers experience outstanding customer service in every interaction with the Company. We feel our customers are partners for life and know the importance of forging lasting, mutually beneficial relationships. With this philosophy in mind and the fact that we manufacture the highest quality stationary hydraulic filtration equipment and high-efficiency filter elements; we help our customers meet their goals, such as lowering maintenance costs, reducing downtime, reducing the need to replace costly equipment, reducing spending on oil, and reaching their sustainability goals. In other words, they typically save a lot of time and money.
