Center will strengthen company's Asian presence.

Hollingsworth & Vose will open the Mark Hollingsworth Global Technology Center at its facility in Suzhou, China this week. It is named for Mark Hollingsworth, who was CEO of H&V from 1960 to 1983 and led H&V’s development as a multinational leader in the areas of filtration media and battery separators. This center represents a major investment in research and development by providing advanced global testing and development capabilities of fibrous media and elements used within filtration, separation, battery separator and other industrial specialty markets.

The opening will be marked by a commissioning ceremony attended by CEO Val Hollingsworth, the board of directors of H&V and members of the Hollingsworth family. This center will further strengthen H&V’s position as a global filtration industry leader by enhancing our capability to deliver innovative products and rapidly provide the highest level of expertise and support to our customers both in the Asia Pacific region and globally.

The test center will be able to test filters in all filtration sectors including auto, cleanroom and HVAC, among others. “Setting up a production, research and development and a test center in Suzhou is a commitment to our market development strategy in China and the Asia Pacific region” said Mr. Hollingsworth.
