"We have been pleased with the progress of our team in the Asia Pacific region and see this investment as the logical next step in our long term growth plan. Since beginning commercial production at our Suzhou mill in 2008, we had good market acceptance of our products which are produced at the highest global standards of quality and performance. H&V is committed to further increasing our scope of products and services to meet the needs of this region,” said CEO Val Hollingsworth.
H&V’s vice president and general manager of the Asia-Pacific region, Josh Ayer, also commented “The demand for engine and industrial filtration products is significant. We have created a successful regional business with global filtration companies operating in China and rapidly growing domestic Chinese companies who realize the competitive advantage of high performance products. We are pleased to be able to offer both water and solvent-based products incorporating our latest technology. This expansion, combined with our recently announced construction of a new global technology center at our Suzhou site, will position H&V well to meet regional customer needs.”
