MANN+HUMMEL acquires Hardy Filtration


 MANN+HUMMEL finalized the acquisition of Hardy Filtration, a Canada-based air filtration company.

“We are committed to expanding in the air and water filtration industries, and we are excited to announce the addition of the Hardy team less than a year after the successful addition of Tri-Dim Filter Corporation to our group,” said Sean Cromie, President and GM, MANN+HUMMEL’s Life Sciences & Environment business unit. “After the Tri-Dim acquisition in summer 2018, a subsequent acquisition of Hardy made perfect sense to increase our ability to satisfy and grow our Canadian customer base.”

Hardy Filtration expands MANN+HUMMEL’s offering in air filtration solutions. Hardy has been developing, manufacturing and marketing a large variety of filtration products for various applications, such as air filters, paint booth filters and dust collector bags for over 25 years.

“The merger with Tri-Dim Canada provides expanded market share and opportunities to grow the combined businesses throughout Canada”, said Werner Lieberherr, President and CEO, MANN+HUMMEL.“Localized production and a committed sales team are key enablers to meet market needs and foster further growth in Canada. We are very excited with the Hardy acquisition to be able to announce this new center of Canadian manufacturing operations in Quebec and look forward to enabling our combined teams to succeed together. We consider French speaking Canada an especially important area for further growth and can now ensure it gets the dedicated focus it needs.”
