Really important tests in the Sahara

Algeria 1971

Oil-bath air cleaners used to be a benchmark in the automotive industry. However, today they are hardly to be found at all in the car segment as they were successively replaced by paper air filters after the 1970s. This changeover took place simply because the new paper inserts enabled a substantial increase in separation efficiency. […]

Based in Singapore, I joined the Intelligent Air Solutions (IAS) team in 2017.

While I was working for MANN+HUMMEL in Poland, I was also a professional Volleyball player. After playing in league matches for 15 years, I decided to retire as the punishment on my body was starting to be problematic. I still needed to do some physical activity and my then Director, […]

queen bee

Since mid-April 2018, we now have around 30,000 new employees at the Ludwigsburg site. Their two wooden hives are situated on the roof of the company car park and – you guessed it – they are now busy making honey.

There is always another obstacle …

obstacle races

When I talk to my friends and colleagues about my hobby taking part in obstacle races, the reaction is usually a mixture of surprise, sympathy and unspoken doubts as to whether or not I’ve lost my marbles. 😉 Admittedly, climbing over 2.5-metre-high wooden walls, crawling through mud or jumping into ice-cold streams in freezing temperatures – all of which I do voluntarily as part of these ‘adventure runs’ – is not for everyone.

Our customer obsession – achieving results

parts of the tec day

Obsession is “an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind” and over the past year, the OE industrial filtration team at MANN+HUMMEL in Raleigh, USA has thought of nothing else but our customers. I have to confess, we have a customer obsession – but not in a deranged way! […]

It’s a kind of Magic

brainstorming and experiences

“One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal – one golden glance of what should be” are the lyrics from the song “It’s a kind of magic” from Queen, the legendary British rock band. In fact it seems that the melody, rhythm and text were always in our ears during the creation of the new concept and design for the Corporate Magazine FAST FORWARD. […]

Chance encounters

view of Brasilia

It was March 1975 and I was about to embark on my first ever major trip overseas. I was about to travel to Mexico for six weeks and visit my biggest client to test whether the number of air filters could be reduced across the entire range of models. […]
