On 14 December 2017, MANN+HUMMEL Group, a leading global filtration specialist, opened its Asia Pacific Headquarters for Intelligent Air Solutions (IAS) in Singapore. The headquarters will spearhead the growth of its OurAir business. OurAir offers indoor air quality solutions that combine MANN+HUMMEL's deep expertise in air filtration with advanced digital technologies.
Besides regional market responsibilities, the IAS Asia Pacific HQ in Singapore is also responsible for global research and development, product charters, brand management and strategic partnerships.
Singapore's strategic location in Asia Pacific, and the government's move towards a smart and sustainable nation, makes it an obvious key hub for MANN+HUMMEL. Together with its Global IoT (Internet-of-Things) Lab, also located in Singapore, MANN+HUMMEL is set to serve a market for clean air solutions in Asia Pacific estimated at more than SGD 4 billion.
MANN+HUMMEL also signed a global strategic partnership with the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) to jointly promote its initiative Better Places for People. The WorldGBC is the leading global non-profit organization driving the agenda for green buildings. Through Better Places for People, the WorldGBC aims to increase market awareness of better indoor environments to support the well-being and productivity of people.
