MANN + HUMMEL Joins ASSIST

MANN + HUMMEL Joins ASSIST – January 15, 2015

MANN+HUMMEL, a German based front-runner in automotive filtration andimages components research and production, has joined ASSIST as an Industry Member.  Possessing over 70 years of expertise in the filtration realm, MANN+HUMMEL leads the way in research and development of new, continually growing applications of filter elements.  As a leader in both the automotive and engineering industries, MANN+HUMMEL’s joining of the ASSIST Center was only logical.
While having a scope of research directed toward healthcare, ASSIST partners with companies from every industry, small and large, to advance the research and innovation produced within the Center. While ASSIST has a goal of improved personal healthcare through leveraging wearable nanotechnologies, the Center thrives off of outside industry applications for the research being completed.

MANN+HUMMEL joins 24 other partner Industry members, some of which include: Coca Cola, 3D Systems, Samsung, and Device Solutions.  Partnership with outside companies continues to fuel the growth of the ASSIST Center while offering first-rate benefits. If you are interested in partnering with, sponsoring or joining the ASSIST Center, please contact Tom Snyder (tdsnyder@ncsu.edu) for more information.
