Baldwin purchased Hastings years ago and kept the Hastings name due to the marketing and name recognition. So, Baldwin is the owner and Hastings also makes the Amsoil filters side by side in the same plant in Nebraska. Baldwin also markets its own brand of filters. Are they the same, only the people putting them together seem to know. Hastings are realtively easy to find, many local outlets and on line as well.. I personally believe Amsoil and HAsting filters are one and the same with a different marketing logo printed on the canister. Balwin makes filters under many names and refuses to inform you which it feels are the higher quality brands as they do not wish to alienate any current customers they manufacture for.
