MANN+HUMMEL completes acquisition of Quebec’s Hardy Filtration
German manufacturer of air filter products said the acquisition expands the global footprint and manufacturing capabilities of Tri-Dim Filter Corp.´s business, acquired by MANN+HUMMEL last year.
LYDWIGSBURG, Germany — MANN+HUMMEL has acquired Hardy Filtration, an air filtration company in Trois-Rivières, Que.
The German manufacturer of air filter products said the acquisition expands the global footprint and manufacturing capabilities of Tri-Dim Filter Corp.´s business, acquired by MANN+HUMMEL last year.
Hardy Filtration, founded in 1993, 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.
“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,” said Sean Cromie, president and general manager of MANN+HUMMEL’s Life Sciences & Environment business unit.
“The merger with Tri-Dim Canada provides expanded market share and opportunities to grow the combined businesses throughout Canada”, adds Werner Lieberherr, president CEO 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.”
Hardy, an employer of more than 80 people, will continue to operate through its Trois Rivières headquarters.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
