Hengst Strengthens its Position in the Eastern-European Market

New location in Poland will take over filter production at the end of May

Hengst is there for customers from the automotive industry all over the world, quite literally: as part of the global growth strategy, the company is putting yet another production location into operation at the end of May, which at the same time will be the automotive supplier’s first factory in Poland.

In Gostyń, Posen, the production of filters and filter inserts for the independent aftermarket (IAM) will begin at the end of May. With this extension of global production capacities, the company seeks to expand its position in the important Eastern-European markets. Hengst Poland Sp.z.o.o., newly founded as part of this endeavor, will be headed by Zygmunt Wabiński, who brings with him 25 years of experience in the world of filters.
The new establishment in Poland stands alongside the recently-opened locations in Singapore and India. Hengst is now present on four continents and in seven countries, with eleven locations altogether. “This creates important conditions for taking into account the particularities of the different international markets and optimally aligning our development and production with these,” explains Jens Röttgering, Chairman of the Board of the Hengst Group. “The internationalization ensures the further growth of our group of companies and therefore the jobs in Germany at the same time.”
