Industrial filtration of Bosch Rexroth AG now part of Hengst Filtration

Family-owned company continues to consistently focus on filtration areas with a promising future

Following the acquisitions of Nordic Air Filtration (2016) and Delbag (2018), the hydraulic filtration business of Bosch Rexroth AG is now officially part of Hengst Filtration. With their hydraulic filter expertise, the approximately 190 employees at the Ketsch site (Baden-Württemberg, Germany) complement the family-owned company's portfolio of technologically leading filtration solutions. The Ketsch plant manufactures highly sophisticated complete filters and filter elements for extreme industrial and mobile hydraulic applications, which are sold in more than 30 countries. With the now completed transaction, more than 40 property rights in the hydraulic filter business will also be transferred to Hengst Filtration.
Leadership claim in industrial filtration underpinned
"With this acquisition, we are not only underlining our claim to leadership in industrial filtration, but are also continuing to consistently integrate future-oriented filtration technologies into our portfolio," says Christopher Heine (CEO Hengst), pleased with the successful completion of the transaction. Thanks to the takeover and the integration of the know-how of the employees at the Ketsch site, Hengst is now also a leader in industrial and mobile hydraulics. The technically highly complex hydraulic filters can withstand a flow rate of up to 16,000 litres of oil per minute or even up to 450 bar and ensure optimum fluid management. As a result, they avoid expensive damage or machine downtimes and ultimately reduce the so-called "Total Cost Of Ownership". "In this way, we live up to our own claim of protecting people, machines and systems with filtration services - and that in a highly demanding area of application," continues Christopher Heine.
Sales growth expected for 2021
In the future, more than 3,000 employees will work for Hengst Filtration at 21 locations on four continents. Last year, they generated a total turnover of 485 million euros. This means that the long-established company was able to more or less maintain the previous year's level despite the pandemic. The outlook for the current year is optimistic. Christopher Heine expects a double-digit percentage increase to around 550 million euros.
