BITZER set up its factory in Rottenburg-Hailfingen

25 September 2019

After having acquired the Alfa Laval portfolio of shell and tube evaporators and condensers in April 2018, the specialist for refrigeration and air conditioning technology BITZER has been setting up its factory in Rottenburg-Hailfingen: The first new condenser produced there has been delivered to a customer.

BITZER acquired the Alfa Laval portfolio of shell and tube evaporators and condensers for air conditioning and refrigeration applications in April 2018. Until May 2019, these products were manufactured in the Alfa Laval factory in Alonte, Italy, for BITZER. Ever since, production has been in the process of being transferred to the BITZER HEXPV (heat exchangers and pressure vessels) factory in Germany, with a recent highlight: in July 2019, the first new BITZER condenser was manufactured in Rottenburg-Hailfingen and was shipped to a customer.

Since the beginning of July 2019, all CRF, CXP, CXPM and McDEW condensers are no longer manufactured in Alonte but at the Rottenburg-Hailfingen site by BITZER directly. Direct-expansion evaporators will be manufactured there as of January 2020.
