September 28, 2011

The $750,000 grant will go toward filtration R&D.

Hollingsworth & Vose Co. (H&V), an East Walpole, MA, based provider of engine, high efficiency air and liquid filter media, battery separator materials and industrial nonwovens, has been awarded a $750,000 grant from the Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission to be used for research and development in various filtration markets.

The Tobacco Commission aims to boost economic revitalization of tobacco-dependent regions by providing grant funding to companies in Virginia involved in applied research that have significant commercialization potential. H&V's manufacturing facility in Floyd, VA, is located within Floyd County, which is within the tobacco-growing region and eligible to sponsor grants. H&V submitted the R&D grant proposal through the Floyd County Economic Development Authority.

H&V operates manufacturing sites and research centers in the US, Europe and Asia.
