Green Point UK, the compressor manufacturing and specialist services arm of BITZER UK, has expanded its team, processing facilities and warehouse capacity in response to growing demand.
Andy Snell has been appointed Quality Controller and Lakota Bratt heads up Compressor Preparation and Finishing at the company’s Milton Keynes headquarters.
On the production side, it has added a new dedicated compressor disassembly line to add capacity and streamline its remanufacturing operation, enabling even quicker turnaround on emergency rebuild projects. The company has also extended warehousing capacity, enabling it to carry larger stocks of finished, remanufactured compressors, available for same-day delivery across the UK.
Will Pribyl, Green Point UK General Manager, said: "In response to increasing demand, the aim is to hold stocks of the most popular types and sizes of compressors, so we can despatch immediately in response to urgent orders. Increasing remanufacturing capacity also means we can respond faster to less commonly used units requiring total rebuilds.
"When a refrigeration compressor goes down unexpectedly, it is nearly always an emergency. These latest investments in staff, production and stocking give us the headroom we need to meet this, and ensure customers have rapid access to the right equipment when a problem arises."
The company recently extended its remanufacturing service to include transcritical carbon dioxide-based compressors, following investment in specialist high-pressure testing equipment.
