MANN+HUMMEL completes acquisition of Hardy Filtration
- Larger footprint and new center for manufacturing operations in Canada
- Expansion of the product portfolio in the areas of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC)
Ludwigsburg (Germany) / Quebec (Canada) August 5, 2019 – MANN+HUMMEL today announced it has finalized the acquisition of Hardy Filtration, a Canada-based air filtration company. This will expand the global footprint and manufacturing capabilities of Tri-Dim Filter Corporation´s business, which MANN+HUMMEL acquired in 2018. MANN+HUMMEL is a global, family-owned company providing filtration solutions for automotive and industrial applications, indoor, industrial & public air quality, and the sustainable use of water. Hardy Filtration, founded in 1993, further expands MANN+HUMMEL’s offering in innovative 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 more than 25 years.
“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 & General Manager of 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.”
“The merger with Tri-Dim Canada provides expanded market share and opportunities to grow the combined businesses throughout Canada”, adds Werner Lieberherr, President & Chief Executive Officer of 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.”
Headquartered in Trois Rivières, Quebec, Canada, Hardy is a privately-held air filtration company with over 80 employees. Hardy Filtration is a provider of a full-line of HVAC filtration products and services, dust collectors, compressed air treatment systems and residential filters. The acquisition of Hardy expands Tri-Dim´s portfolio and production footprint in Canada, providing increased growth opportunities for the MANN+HUMMEL Group. Hardy will continue to operate through its Trois Rivières headquarters with Geneviève Hardy & Luc Girard as part of the Management team.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
