MANN + HUMMEL has announced its strategic investment in Seccua Holding AG, based in Steingaden in southern Germany. In addition to the purchase of shares, the transaction also includes growth financing for the company.
Seccua, specialises in filtration of water
Since the acquisition of MICRODYN-NADIR in 2015, MANN + HUMMEL has been active in the membrane industry with a focus on water, wastewater and process filtration. With the purchase of shares in Seccua Holding AG, the company continues to expand its portfolio towards drinking water filtration. The focus is both on applications for the filtration of water at the time of entry into the water pipes of a building / facility – point-of-entry – as well as immediately before use – point-of-use.
MANN + HUMMEL is a leading global, family-owned filtration solutions specialist. Headquartered in Ludwigsburg, Germany, the corporate group develops innovative solutions for motor vehicles, industrial applications, clean indoor and outdoor air, and sustainable water use.
Founded in 2005, Seccua is today a global innovation and technology leader in drinking water treatment with ultrafiltration equipment and a partner to drinking water utilities, public buildings and private households. Seccua develops, manufactures and distributes innovative solutions for the removal of pathogens, turbidities, drug residues and lime from drinking water without irradiation and without the use of chemicals. According to a study by Grandview Research, the global market potential for water treatment in the private sector is around 30 billion euros by 2025. Of this, about a quarter will be attributable to filtration.
Werner Lieberherr, President & Chief Executive Officer of the MANN + HUMMEL Group, said:
The topic of water treatment is becoming increasingly important. MANN + HUMMEL offers innovative solutions for clean and healthy drinking water. That’s why we look forward to a successful, common future and are convinced that we have created the best conditions for us to soon achieve market leadership in the drinking water market in addition to our technology leadership.
