*Air Filter Lead Times Notice 3/8/2021:
Due to ongoing supply chain issues, lead times on all orders for Air Filters will be extended to 6 to 8 weeks effective immediately. The air filter market has seen unprecedented demand over the past year resulting in a shortage of materials available to IPI. We are working diligently to remedy this situation as quickly as possible, and we will keep you updated with any changes in the situation.

Last updated 03/08/2021. Please contact your sales representative or the Des Moines sales office at 800-332-7922 if you have any questions regarding IPI lead times.
