Refrigeration equipment manufacturer Bitzer is expanding its product portfolio by acquiring the shell-and-tube heat exchanger segment of Alfa Laval SpA.

As of May, Bitzer will be the largest independent manufacturer of shell-and-tube heat exchangers in the world.

”I am delighted to be able to welcome Alfa Laval’s shell-and-tube heat exchangers,” stated Gianni Parlanti, chief sales and marketing officer with Bitzer. ”With this acquisition, we are expanding our portfolio, as the evaporator technology complements our existing product range.”

The products taken over from Alfa Laval are designed for air-conditioning and refrigeration applications and will enlarge Bitzer’s product portfolio.
