Rainer Große-Kracht, Chief Technical Officer of Bitzer, has pledged support to smaller OEMs and contractors after being elected elected Chairman of the Association of European Refrigeration Component Manufacturers (ASERCOM).
Große-Kracht, who takes over from Stephane Nassau of Danfoss, has represented the compressor manufacturer at ASERCOM for six years. He said: "I am very happy and feel honoured that the association has entrusted me, as the chairman of ASERCOM, with leading the refrigeration and air conditioning sector in this time of far-reaching changes with which we are currently confronted.
"That is a big task for our member companies but it is an even greater task for the entire industry. Particularly the smaller OEMs and installers frequently cannot cope with the legislation. Here, we want to communicate more effectively with our local associations and to further improve our recommendations and guidelines, making them easier to understand. And ASERCOM is just the right platform for that."
