LUDWIGSBURG, Germany & FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – The MANN+HUMMEL Group based in Ludwigsburg, Germany, has announced it is taking over Purolator Filters LLC, previously a joint venture between Bosch and MANN+HUMMEL. Antitrust authorities have now approved the transaction. The business will continue to be based in Fayetteville, N.C., but will be renamed to MANN+HUMMEL Purolator Filters LLC. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
 
MANN+HUMMEL and Bosch ran the joint venture for more than six years in a very productive partnership that saw MANN+HUMMEL managing the original equipment (OE) business, and Bosch taking care of Independent Aftermarket (IAM) customers. IAM customers that have been served by Bosch during the joint venture will be transitioned to MANN+HUMMEL Purolator Filters LLC. A seamless customer service is being guaranteed, the company says.
 
Alfred Weber, president and CEO of MANN+HUMMEL, said, “For our customers, Purolator will continue to be a trusted partner. We are committed to strengthening the Purolator brand and are providing new opportunities to the people of Purolator, who we warmly welcome to the MANN+HUMMEL family today.”
