BITZER buys shell-and-tube from Alfa Laval


10 April 2018
BITZER has bought the shell-and-tube heat exchanger part of Alfa Laval based in Alonte, Northern Italy.

Ginni Parlanti, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, said: ‘I am delighted to be able to welcome Alfa Laval’s shell-and-tube heat exchangers to the BITZER family.''
The products from Alfa Laval are designed for air conditioning and refrigeration applications. BITZER has been producing condensers for fresh and seawater applications since the 1950s.

Parlanti added: "With this acquisition, we are expanding our portfolio, as the evaporator technology manufactured in Alonte complements our existing product range. With this operation, BITZER is becoming the largest independent manufacturer in the shell-and-tube heat exchanger market worldwide. Our aim is to become the technology leader in this segment offering the market the latest solutions. To do this, we are building up a state-of-the-art laboratory with highly skilled personnel.

"This is an important step for BITZER in its efforts to develop its heat exchanger and pressure vessel segment effectively.''
