Once again among „Bavaria’s Best 50“

Sandler once again among „Bavaria’s Best 50“

Sandler AG from Schwarzenbach/Saale, Germany was once again voted one of “Bavaria’s Best 50”. The Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs awards this distinction to the fastest-growing, privately owned medium-sized companies. Ilse Aigner - Bavarian State Minister of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology and Deputy Minister-President of Bavaria - presented this award to President & CEO Dr. Christian Heinrich Sandler and his wife Bärbl Sandler, Head of Chief Human Resources Officer.

The Ministry of Economic Affairs’ award for medium-sized companies “Bavaria’s Best 50” is conferred on companies, who managed to increase their revenues and number of employees above average within the past five years, and additionally report good earnings at the date set. This award also focuses on the company’s economic and social importance.

“It was a great honour for me and my wife to accept this prize. My thanks to all my staff for their hard work, diligence, commitment and loyalty to the company”, said Dr. Christian Heinrich Sandler. Within the past five years the number of employees increased by 35% and revenues rose as well. Today, Sandler ranks among the 20 largest nonwoven producers worldwide and is one of Europe’s market leaders in this sector. Together with clients and partners, Sandler develops nonwovens for various applications in the markets construction, engineering, filtration, home textiles, hygiene, transportation and wipes.

The award expresses an appreciation for innovativeness, entrepreneurial creativity and future-proof business models of Bavarian medium-sized companies. Aigner: “Our growth, prosperity and high level of employment are due to numerous excellent companies in the state. The award “Bavaria’s Best 50” honours their achievements. Among them are numerous hidden champions, so-called “secret world market leaders” in their respective branches. Such a company is Sandler AG, which belongs to the international market leaders in nonwovens production. This award is intended to present these role models to the public and to be further motivation to continue pursuing the company´s objectives together with the employees.”

Sandler at FILTECH 2018

New standards shape market and product development

At FILTECH 2018, Sandler AG will showcase a wide range of highly efficient synthetic filter media. On March 13 to 15, indoor air quality and new international standards will take centre stage. Efficient pocket filter media and pleatable nonwovens for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning achieve high efficiency throughout their entire operating lives. Nonwovens for cabin air and engine air filters help improve the indoor air quality in our vehicles. Fuel filter media protect the engine and contribute to efficient combustion. Synthetic vacuum cleaner bags reliably trap dirt particles and dust and foster a higher suction power.

The new international testing standard ISO 16890 is changing the filtration market and product development regarding both filtration performance and energy efficiency. Sandler filter media address these priorities: With a low pressure drop they reduce energy consumption during the operation of the filtration plant. Progressively structured pocket filter media contain fine fibres of <1 µm and attain high efficiency as well as high dust holding capacity. The latest Sandler product line enAIRsave® combines excellent filtration performance with energy efficiency and offers ideal products for all efficiency ranges according to ISO 16890. As part of the accompanying conference, a lecture by Sandler will focus on the advantages of these new pocket filter media with regard to the provisions of ISO 16890.

Furthermore, Sandler nonwovens are resistant to temperature and moisture—durable synthetic media featuring optimum performance throughout the filter’s operating life. Pleatable Sandler filtration nonwovens are also easily processable in all common pleating processes. Their fibre structure supports accurate pleating; the utilised polymers render the pleats stable and resistant to mechanical influences.

A new booth design highlights the aspects affecting our well-being in public spaces and informs visitors on the versatile areas of application for Sandler filter media. Additionally, the booth itself demonstrates how other nonwovens for technical applications help create a pleasant atmosphere: Acoustically efficient nonwoven panels, applied for instance in the construction industry, form the walls of the booth and will provide optimum conversational acoustics at the Sandler booth at FILTECH 2018.

Your Sandler Team is looking forward to welcoming you at booth C1 in hall 11.1!
