H&V to make Nanowave in Germany

October 16, 2013

Expansion will meet demand for high performance filter media.

Hollingsworth & Vose will add NanoWave filtration media production capability in its plant in Hatzfeld, Germany to support the rapid growth in demand for high performance filter media. NanoWave, which won the IDEA13 Achievement Award for rolled goods, achieves higher levels of filtration efficiency at reduced pressure drops. The Hatzfeld production line is expected to start operations by mid 2015 and will serve European customers. H&V currently manufactures NanoWave media in the U.S. in Floyd, VA.

“In addition to the European capacity expansion, further performance improvements and next generation product developments will result in increased service levels for our European Customers”, comments Jochem Hofstetter, vice president and managing director EMEA.
