Our vision: Purifying our planet

Mobility, health, technology, environmental protection & sustainability - we work every day on the major issues of our time. And with the goal of making the planet a cleaner place.

Millions of our products help to clean up the world. But it can be even better. We think filtration - in everything we do.

The way we think and act as a family business is shaped by our responsibility to use resources sparingly and by the challenge of making engines, machines and systems cleaner and more efficient with forward-looking filtration solutions, thereby improving our living environment in the long term.

As a company, we not only convince with innovative technology, but also through trusting and partnership-based cooperation with our customers all over the world. In addition, we want to offer all our employees a safe, sustainable and meaningful job.

The Hengst brand

The Hengst brand has stood for top quality in filtration for 65 years. Initially as "H filters for oil, fuel and air", we have been developing and manufacturing filtration and fluid management solutions for well-known automobile and engine manufacturers since the very beginning. In the meantime, Hengst has become a recognized brand for many areas of application in industry - also in industrial air filtration, for small devices or medical technology.

Hengst develops innovative solutions for well-known manufacturers and therefore also stands for original equipment manufacturer quality in the service parts sector. So you can rely on Hengst solutions for the entire product life.
