Hollingsworth and Vose is a global manufacturer of advanced materials used in filtration, battery, and industrial applications. Family-owned for seven generations, the company's origins go back to 1728 when an ”Act for the Encouragement of Making Paper” was passed by the General Court of the Province of Massachusetts Bay. Evolving continuously since that time, H&V now operates manufacturing and research & development facilities in the Americas, Europe, China and India. Today, H&V’s advanced materials contribute to a cleaner world through their use in products that provide clean air, clean liquids and energy storage. H&V’s materials can be found in filters for clean rooms, hospitals, computers, commercial buildings, homes, cars, trucks and heavy duty equipment, and also in batteries used mainly in telecom and hybrid vehicle applications. Our Company is headquartered at our plant site in East Walpole, Massachusetts USA, on the same river where the enterprise began more than 250 years ago.
