Hengst opens new filter plant in Poland – Eleven locations on four continents
It is always there, where the customers are: With eleven locations on four continents, Hengst has a global footprint. Short distances from the production of high-performance filters to the customers from the automotive industry and the service business are guaranteed. The most recent plant in the Polish city of Gostyń, near Poznan, was opened on October 22 and celebrated with guests and customers.
The new location is equipped for the production of filters and filter cartridges for manufacturer-independent service businesses (IAM – Independent Aftermarket) – especially for the fast-growing Eastern European markets, which can now be supplied by the shortest route. Modern production facilities provide for the usual high premium quality of Hengst products.
“With the global networking of our locations, we meet our customers at their locations. The factory in Poland is an important reinforcement of our global manufacturing capabilities,” said Jens Röttgering, owner and Chairman of the Board of the Hengst Group, at the opening. “We are particularly pleased to have an experienced filtration specialist and connoisseur of the Eastern European automotive market as CEO of the new Hengst Poland Sp. z o. o. in Zygmunt Wabiński.” The launch of Hengst Poland could not have run any better. Orders are coming in, and production is already at full speed.
