Hollingsworth & Vose Makes a Significant Acquisition
In 2014, U.S.-based Hollingsworth & Vose acquired Raman FibreScience Pvt Ltd, a technology company based in Mysuru, India. Raman FibreScience specializes in developing innovations in fiber-based, wet-laid filtration media and battery separators and was a natural complement to H&V’s existing business. H&V successfully integrated the India R&D and manufacturing operations extending the company’s reach to supply Mysuru-based battery products to global customers.
The acquisition has enabled our manufacturing facility in Mysuru to produce battery separator products that expand our offerings into energy storage. For example, our Hi-Sep™ battery separators are produced in Mysuru and are commonly used in both industrial and automotive applications.
H&V Invests in India and Expands Manufacturing Capacity
Now in 2022, H&V is expanding its manufacturing capacity in Mysuru, India. The investment H&V is committing will more than double H&V’s existing capacity to serve the South Asia and Global market.
In line with H&V’s vision to provide solutions for “Creating a Cleaner World”, H&V’s investment will expand capacity to manufacture Hi-Sep battery separators and Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) separators for automotive and industrial applications. Further, the investment will enable production of HEPA filtration media for regional customers.
