Signing of the acquisition

August 8, 2019 – MANN+HUMMEL, a filtration solutions provider for automotive and industrial applications, has acquired Hardy Filtration, a Canadian air filtration company.

The company says this will expand the global footprint and manufacturing capabilities of Tri-Dim Filter Corporation’s business, which MANN+HUMMEL acquired in 2018.

MANN+HUMMEL is a global, family-owned company providing filtration solutions for automotive and industrial applications, indoor, industrial and public air quality, and the sustainable use of water. Hardy Filtration, founded in 1993, further expands MANN+HUMMEL’s offering in air filtration solutions.

Headquartered in Trois Rivières, Quebec, Canada, Hardy 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, for more than 25 years. The company has over 80 employees.


“We are committed to expanding in the air and water filtration industries, and we are excited to announce the addition of the Hardy team less than a year after the successful addition of Tri-Dim Filter Corporation to our group,” says Sean Cromie, president and general manager of MANN+HUMMEL’s life sciences and environment business unit. “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.”

“The merger with Tri-Dim Canada provides expanded market share and opportunities to grow the combined businesses throughout Canada,” says Werner Lieberherr, president and chief executive officer 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 centre of Canadian manufacturing operations in Quebec and look forward to enabling our combined teams to succeed together. We consider French-speaking Canada an especially important area for further growth and can now ensure it gets the dedicated focus it needs.”
