Innovations and creativity

    Particulate filter in a motorcycle helmet? Fine dust eater? Bionic filter? – MANN+HUMMEL is using its creativity and ability to take a broader view to develop solutions to meet the challenges of the future. Here we like to take inspiration from nature.

    The development of creative ideas requires taking a broad view. This approach is consistently applied in the company. Inspired by nature or playfully meeting the challenges of society, we use creativity to solve problems and in this way come up with innovative ideas. In this process, we are not afraid to intensively take on big tasks. We further develop our new products and test them in the laboratory and the field.
