Annual Report 2016

We always like to be an idea ahead. And we succeed in doing so time and again, because we know the market so well and understand ist dynamics. Everything is constantly in motion. And that's the way we like it. Because we love to make things happen – and make them happen fast. Nothing has changed our "fast forward" attitude over the last 75 years. Without it, "Leadership in Filtration" would be impossible.
