New MD for Mann+Hummel’s Helsatech and Helsacomp

Dominik Haider will take over the management of Mann+Hummel’s Helsatech and Helsacomp businesses on 1 January 2022.

As the new managing director, Haider will drive the business activities of molecular filtration manufacturer Helsatech, and Helsacomp, a supplier of elastomer membranes.

Bernd Kolb, Mann+Hummel’s vice president Operations Life Sciences & Environment Europe, who temporarily assumed responsibility for the businesses at the beginning of December, will remain part of the management team.

Haider has been with the Mann+Hummel Group since 2009. After working in project management and R&D at the company’s site in Marklkofen, Germany for around nine years, Haider moved to the Himmelkron site in 2018, where he was global sales director for cabin air filters. At its Himmelkron site, Mann+Hummel produces particle filters for the automotive industry as well as molecular air filters for household applications, pharmaceutical production, clean rooms and hospital operations.

“We are very pleased to have won Dominik Haider for the position. With his many years of strategic and operational experience in the filtration sector and his leadership skills, he will successfully continue the growth course of Helsacomp and Helsatech. Having Dominik, an executive from Himmelkron, taking over the management at the Gefrees site, underlines the common strategic path of both sites,” said Fua Nipah, president and general manager Life Sciences & Environment at Mann+Hummel.

Helsatech and Helsacomp are also being renamed. From 1 January 2022, Helsatech GmbH will operate as Mann+Hummel Molecular GmbH, while Helsacomp GmbH will trade under the name comp! Elastomere GmbH.

“We are very much looking forward to the transformation and further establishment of our strong brands under the new management. The new company names once again underline the respective focus of the divisions and orientation on the market for filtration and elastomer membrane products. At the same time, the change of name strengthens the internal and external brand presence,” said Nipah.
