GEA Refrigeration Technologies opens freezer plant in France
The centre will manufacture and assemble spiral chillers and freezers from the GEA A-Tec and GEA Maxi-Stack ranges.
These systems primarily chill or freeze foods produced as ready meals and as meat, bakery, and ice cream products and previously the freezers were exclusively manufactured in Vancouver, Canada.
Dr Hugo Blaum, segment president of GEA Refrigeration Technologies, said: “Owing to sales prognosis, implementation of freezer production in Europe was a logical development.
“A win-win situation will be offered in Dijon: our customers profit from the proximity of the plant and from lower logistics costs – and the location enables additional opportunities for even better market penetration in Europe.”
