EUROPE: Swedish refrigeration technology group, Beijer Ref AB, has announced the opening of SCM REF France, based in Lyon.
SCM REF France will focus exclusively on the manufacture and sales of condensing units and compressor packs including technical support and competitive solutions to Beijer Ref's wholesale arm across southern Europe.
In 2014 Beijer Ref made the strategic decision to create an OEM division offering in house product support to its wholesale operations. The decision coincided with the acquisition of the remaining forty nine percent shares of the Italian plant manufacturer SCM Frigo, who are well established in the design and manufacture of eco-friendly carbon-dioxide refrigeration plant solutions.
The addition of SCM REF France to the group both complements and builds on the strengths of the already established manufacturing facilities in Italy and Sweden.
Beijer Ref has also announced it intends to extend the model into other key geographic areas.
