Operations Manager, Mann + Hummel

Dirk Bayliss and Andre Nelson have over 50 combined  years of experience in leadership, coaching and mentoring through military training, the manufacturing environment, and public speaking events. Currently, Dirk serves as the Plant Manager and Andre, the Operations Manager, for MANN + HUMMEL's production facility in Dunlap, TN.

MANN+HUMMEL, a Germany-based global leader in filtration solutions for automobiles, industrial applications, clean air interior spaces and sustainable use of water, is investing $15 million and creating up to 50 jobs at its facility in Dunlap, Tennessee.  The company develops, produces and distributes a number of filtration products, and is heavily involved in research and development for future filtration needs.   MANN+HUMMEL currently employs nearly 300 Tennesseans at its Dunlap facility which opened in 2011 and produces air intake manifolds and filtration systems for automotive OEMs.  The capital investment will allow MANN+HUMMEL to meet growing demand from automotive OEMs as well as manufacturers of commercial and industrial vehicles. The company anticipates the majority of the new jobs will be in production.

Headquartered in Ludwigsburg, Germany, MANN+HUMMEL and its subsidiaries employ more than 21,000 people at more than 80 locations worldwide. Within the USA, MANN+HUMMEL has operations in California, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
