Having held a majority share in Pamlico Air since March 2021, Mann+Hummel now has 100% ownership of the US manufacturer of indoor air filtration products mainly for the retail and wholesale market.

Pamlico Air will complement Mann+Hummel’s Tri-Dim and Tri-Dim Hardy subsidiaries, which focus primarily on the commercial and industrial indoor air filtration aftermarket.

The three North American brands will now form the Air Filtration Americas division in Mann+Hummel’s Life Sciences & Environment segment.

“With the acquisition of Tri-Dim in 2018, Hardy Filtration in 2019, and now with the full acquisition of Pamlico Air in 2022, we have essentially created a North American powerhouse in air filtration, covering retail, wholesale and the commercial aftermarket in the region,” said Fua Nipah, president and general manager, Life Sciences & Environment at Mann+Hummel.

Harry Smith, the former Pamlico Air CEO, will continue as executive director to guide the business and manage the company’s growth in the retail sector. Shawn Windley will lead the united team as president, Mann+Hummel Air Filtration Americas.

“With the integration of North American air filtration leaders of Tri-Dim, Tri-Dim Hardy and Pamlico Air, Mann+Hummel brings more locations, more sales representation and even greater experience to the field, all backed by the financial strength and global footprint of Mann+Hummel. We couldn’t be more excited about the future in this market,” said Windley.
