Managing Director of VEMAC, Kenny Huang, said: “This is a great opportunity for VEMAC to expand further afield and to utilise A-Gas’ expertise and proven track record in the global refrigerants market. Our vision and values are a close fit with A-Gas and we are looking forward to exciting times ahead working within the newly expanded team.”
VEMAC employs approximately 25 people, including in-house engineers and technicians offering specialist recovery and reclamation services on-site. VEMAC is introducing a bespoke refrigerant cleaning service targeting energy savings in the HVAC chiller sector.
Following the mid-2017 investment in the company by private equity firm KKR, A-Gas bought Netherlands-based reclamation business BTC in 2017 and in 2018 acquired the leading supplier of refrigerants to the European automotive sector, Arthur Friedrichs Kältemittel. The company also bought USA-based refrigerant reclamation specialist Diversified Pure Chem in 2017 as part of a wider global growth plan.
