Mann+Hummel has made a strategic investment in German filtration company Seccua Holding AG.
Along with a share purchase, the transaction also includes growth financing for the Steingaden-based Seccua.
Founded in 2005, Seccua develops, compact solutions for the removal of pathogens, turbidity, drug residues and lime from drinking water without irradiation and the use of chemicals. More than 3000 Seccua systems are in operation in Germany and worldwide.
With the acquisition of a stake in Seccua, Mann+Hummel expands its portfolio into drinking water filtration, with a focus on point-of-entry as well as point-of-use.
Mann+Hummel has been active in the water and wastewater filtration since acquiring Microdyn-Nadir in 2015.
“The topic of water treatment is becoming increasingly important. Mann+Hummel offers innovative solutions for clean and healthy drinking water,” said Werner Lieberherr, president & CEO of the Mann+Hummel Group. “We are therefore looking forward to a successful joint future and are convinced, in addition to our technology leadership, to have set perfect preconditions to achieve market leadership in the drinking water market soon.”
