Münster’s specialist in filtration and fluid management will showcase future prospects for the passenger vehicle sector

Often it is the innovative solutions from the supplier industry that are presented for the first time at the IAA, and that set the trends for the automotive future. One of these technologies will be celebrating its world premier at the booth belonging to Hengst Filtration, the specialist in filtration and fluid management: The sustainable and eco-efficient oil filter concept, Blue.on. In addition, the company will be presenting trailblazing products from sectors that include fluid management, crankcase ventilation, transmission oil filtration, air and cabin filtration for use as original equipment.

Pure air in vehicles!

Hengst Blue.care ensures the best air quality

In times of increasing discussion about dust pollution in traffic and the rising numbers of people with allergies, air purity inside vehicles is becoming more and more of a focus for drivers, especially drivers with families. With the new Blue.care cabin filter, Hengst SE & Co. KG, the filtration specialists from Münster, offer a powerful next-generation cabin filter. Pollen, fine dust, mold and spores, odors, and bacteria are reliably filtered out of the air. This makes an important contribution to well-being, health, and active accident prevention.

Fast navigation through the filter range

Based on the online catalog, the Hengst filter app is now available in the Google Play Store and Apple iTunes Store. After installing the app onto their smartphone, users have access to a dynamic tool allowing them to quickly search for filter types for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, agricultural and con-struction machines, as well as marine applications right on their smartphone. Being in a hurry is part of everyday business in the parts market and workshops. No one has time to waste searching for the right spare parts for different vehicle makes and models – today, tools providing the necessary information on all end devices are a must.

Best Supplier: Sinotruk Honors Hengst

Long-term, close development partnership with China’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturer

Hengst is also a popular development and system partner for Asian vehicle manufacturers: Sinotruk, one of the largest commercial vehicle manufacturers in China, recently honored Hengst China as the “Best Cooperation Supplier of 2016.” Hengst and Sinotruk have maintained a close business partnership since 2009.

The prize is an especially prominent one on the Chinese commercial vehicle market, since Sinotruk only selects a few suppliers for the award each year from its total pool of around 1,000. Key factors that won Hengst the award include its expertise in research and development, permanently high quality, supplier reliability, and economic efficiency. Ongoing suggestions for improvement from the Hengst team on site in Kunshan also impressed China’s largest manufacturer of heavyduty commercial vehicles. “We are proud of this proof of the trust Sinotruk has in us, and we believe it is a confirmation of our corporate strategy of staying close to the markets and our customers through our global locations,” says Ingo Brunsmann, Group Vice President of Original Equipment.

Hengst goes to Dubai

16th location worldwide: new sales office strengthens presence and customer proximity in the Gulf

A strong network around the world: on 1 January 2017, Hengst will open its 16th location worldwide in the form of Hengst Middle East FZE. This means that customers in the Gulf will be able to benefit from short routes and an even quicker and more customised service.

In the Gulf, Hengst filter products have been valued for their quality and reliability for many years. This is reason enough to expand the already strong market position with a permanent presence in the region. Hengst Middle East will use the Dubai location to serve the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Quatar, Bahrain as well as Oman.

Regional Sales Director Ziad Alali, the manager of the new location, not only boasts many years of industry experience, but also commands extensive knowledge of the regional markets.

The previous exporter, Manfred Hommert GmbH, will remain by the team’s side in Dubai in a close advisory role. The new location represents the next step for Hengst in expanding its presence in all major markets. Globally positioned but always close to the customer: it is based on this maxim that the company has built up a dense global service network over the past few years.
