Hengst Filtration opens site in Bengaluru, India

The filtration specialist will manufacture products from all business areas in Bengaluru and thus primarily serve the Indian market. However, the potential also extends far beyond that.

Bengaluru. Hengst Filtration has opened a new site in Bengaluru (Bangalore), India, taking a further step in its international transformation "from automotive supplier to filtration specialist for many areas of application". More than 90 colleagues, customers, partners and representatives of the press attended the opening ceremony at the new plant. In future, Hengst will produce and sell filtration solutions for the automotive sector, hydraulic applications, medical technology and various branches of industry here - primarily for the Indian market.

India represents a significant growth opportunity for Hengst Filtration. The country's growing economy and increasing demand for filtration systems across all industries make it an ideal location for our expansion plans. We are confident that our innovative filtration solutions for industry and the environment will be well received in India.
