Münster. Hengst Filtration has opened its new TechCenter Filtration at its headquarters in Münster, Germany, after about a year of construction. The building, where Walter Hengst founded the company in 1958, is home to a new headquarters for every aspect of filtration.
In our TechCenter Filtration, we are concentrating our innovative forces in the field of basic industrial research and advance development. Here we research and develop solutions for issues that are new to Hengst or new to the world: Mobility transition, energy transformation, air pollution, microplastic filtration and much more.
CEO Hengst Filtration
The TechCenter Filtration, headed by Group Director Dr. Rolf Gausepohl, encompasses the development of new products, processes and measuring methods in a single location, starting from the first samples through to the pre-series product.
In the new premises, the developers benefit from the proximity to each other and the rapid exchange of ideas. In addition, the TechCenter Filtration is open to colleagues from other departments and can also be visited by external guests.
Based on the conviction that current challenges are best tackled together, Hengst invites everyone to join in the search for solutions.

Group Director TechCenter Filtration
At the TechCenter Filtration, Hengst is building new competencies and developing solutions for flue gas filtration during invasive operations, for an electrified cabin filter, for fuel cell drives, and is also working on solutions for capturing and delivering carbon dioxide.
Hengst Filtration expects sales of around €750 million in 2023, an increase of around €100 million on the previous year. Above all, the company continues to vigorously drive forward its transformation from an automotive supplier to a filtration specialist in many areas. An exciting step in this direction this year was the investment in artemis control AG, a Swiss company in the field of trace gas filtration for semiconductor manufacturing.
