In May 2014, MANN+HUMMEL GmbH acquired 50 % of the shares of MICRODYN-NADIR GmbH. The main goal is to establish MANN+HUMMEL as a meaningful player also in the water filtration business.
In the context of this Joint Venture, MICRODYN-NADIR will be responsible for MANN+HUMMEL´s water activities. This means that MANN+HUMMEL´s membrane activities will be marketed under MICRODYN-NADIR´s company brand.
As MICRODYN-NADIR will keep focusing on membranes and modules in the future, only the ultrafiltration modules for water filtration of MANN+HUMMEL will be marketed and distributed under the product brand AQUADYN®, which is a registered trade mark of MICRODYN-NADIR in Europe.
With regards to the complementary product range of both companies MICRODYN-NADIR is happy to not only supply their customers with an even broader portfolio but also with a wider global presence. Besides their subsidiaries in Raleigh (USA) and Xiamen (China) they are now also present in Singapore and Brazil.
