With the undisclosed acquisition of a stake in Seccua Holding AG, the company further expands its portfolio into drinking water filtration. The focus is both on the filtration of water at the time of entry into the water pipes of a building or facility – point-of-entry –, as well as immediately before use – point-of-use.
Founded in 2005, Seccua is a developer of compact and cost-effective filtration solutions for the complete removal of pathogens and particles such as microplastics from drinking water.
The company offers proven solutions to prevent limescale from forming on pipe walls and in water heaters, and to remove dissolved ingredients such as drug residues, hormones, plasticizers and pesticides.
Seccua makes compact devices which received EPA approval as a complete disinfection step.
More than 3,000 systems are in operation in Germany and worldwide.
Led by Werner Lieberherr, President & Chief Executive Officer, Mann+Hummel is a global expert for filtration solutions for motor cars, industrial applications, clean air in interior spaces and the sustainable use of water.
In 2018, the group achieved sales of approx. 4 billion euros worldwide with more than 20,000 employees at more than 80 locations. The products manufactured by the group include air cleaner systems, intake manifold systems, liquid filter systems, plastic components, filter media, cabin filters, industrial filters and membrane filters.
