H&V is a global leader in filtration, battery separator and energy storage solutions. Family-owned for seven generations, the company’s origins go back to 1728 when the “Act for the Encouragement of Making Paper” was passed by the General Court of the Province of Massachusetts Bay. Evolving and innovating continuously since then, H&V now operates manufacturing and research and development facilities in the Americas, Europe, China and India.

Today, H&V’s advanced materials contribute to a cleaner world by providing clean air and liquids, powering hybrid, start-stop and electric vehicles and enabling energy storage. H&V’s filtration solutions can be found almost everywhere, from clean rooms and hospitals to computers, commercial buildings, homes, vehicles and heavy-duty equipment, and our battery separator and energy storage solutions are helping the world transition to a more sustainable future. Our company is headquartered at our plant site in East Walpole, Massachusetts, USA, on the same river where the enterprise began nearly 300 years ago.
