German filter maker MAHLE acquires ultrafiltration membrane manufacturer

Sponsored by

STUTTGART, Germany, Jan. 31, 2012 -- MAHLE Industry GmbH (Stuttgart, Germany) has acquired the technology venture InnoWa Membrane GmbH (Schwaikheim, Germany).

InnoWa Membrane specializes in the development, application, and manufacture of high-performance filter systems based on membrane technology. The company emerged from the former EBG GmbH and employs currently 20 people who will be taken over. In future, InnoWa Membrane GmbH will operate under the name MAHLE InnoWa GmbH, headquartered in Stuttgart.

InnoWa Membrane, a technology leader, manufactures hollow fiber membranes for ultrafiltration. Ultrafiltration is used, for example, as a process step in the treatment of drinking water from rivers, surface waters, or springs, and as a preliminary step in sea water desalination. This technology allows even minuscule particles such as germs, viruses, and bacteria to be filtered, opening up additional areas of application in home and building services engineering, for example.

With its Industrial Filtration division, MAHLE Industry is already an established manufacturer of filtration solutions for a broad spectrum of industrial applications. "By acquiring InnoWa Membrane, we are opening up new areas of application for our company in the field of filtration, such as the increasingly important segment of water treatment," says Dr. Michael Matros, Corporate Executive Vice President and General Manager of MAHLE Industry. "This acquisition also strengthens our core markets of Food & Beverage, Power Generation, and general industrial applications," continues Dr. Matros.

MAHLE Industry already has a globally active sales network and an excellent reputation in the market. The integration of InnoWa Membrane into the Industrial Filtration division creates a new platform within MAHLE Industry with a focus on water treatment.
