Ludwigsburg, August, 9, 2016 – The biofunctional FreciousPlus cabin filter
from MANN-FILTER won several awards at the start of the year. In France, FreciousPlus was named Product of the Year 2016 in the passenger car cabin filter category. More than 10,000 representative consumers in France were surveyed for these awards in an online study conducted by market research institute Nielsen. At the Hanover Fair, the innovative cabin filter received the Industry Prize 2016 in the supplier category.

"We are very proud that consumers and industry experts alike have expressed such trust in and appreciation for our FreciousPlus cabin filter. The MANN-FILTER FreciousPlus has both an anti-allergen and anti-microbial effect and we are delighted that our customers recognize the many advantages that this product has to offer. The awards we have received for the FreciousPlus speak for themselves", says Jörg Engels, Director Brand Management in the automobile spare parts business at MANN+HUMMEL.

The FreciousPlus cabin filter is available in numerous European markets as well as in Asia, the USA and Mexico. With more than 70 types of filter, the FreciousPlus product range already covers around 60 percent of the market for passenger vehicles and transporters in Europe.

The unique feature of FreciousPlus is its biofunctional coating that not only binds allergens, but also prevents molds and bacteria from entering the passenger compartment through the ventilation. The high-performance filter medium additionally eliminates almost all harmful particulate matter, while another layer retains unpleasant odors and harmful gases such as ozone, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide.

MANN+HUMMEL, an expert in filtration solutions and development partner and original equipment supplier to the international automotive and mechanical engineering industries, manufactures biofunctional filtration technology for more than just the original equipment business. In the independent automotive aftersales market, this technology is available in the FreciousPlus cabin filter from MANN-FILTER.

MANN+HUMMEL has filed patents for this innovative filter technology with the German Patent and Trademark Office as well as in other countries.

Wholesalers and workshops can obtain further information on the FreciousPlus cabin filters from the website www.frecious-plus.com and the MANN-FILTER YouTube channel.
