Frigel to Manufacture Process Cooling Technology in Thailand
Frigel Firenze S.p.A., Scandicci, Italy,announced that it is nearing completion of its new 9,000 m2 (97,000-square-feet) manufacturing facility in Bangkok, Thailand, as the company continues to meet growing demand for its advanced process cooling technology.
The new USD 7 million plant is slated for completion in April and is primarily focused on serving customers in the burgeoning Asia Pacific market. The total investment for the plant includes costs for land, construction and production machinery. The new facility, which began construction in 2013, is expected to be fully operational in September 2015. Frigel will transition to the new facility from its existing 1,000 m2 (10,764 square-feet) Bangkok plant beginning this summer.
According to Frigel CEO Duccio Dorin, the sizeable increase in the company’s Thailand manufacturing operation signifies the company’s commitment to the Asia Pacific market. He added that it also signals clear optimism for overall company growth as manufacturers worldwide increasingly adopt advanced process cooling technologies.
Frigel’s process cooling technology is uniquely designed to help plastics processors and manufacturers across a wide spectrum of industries maximize efficiencies in cooling plant equipment – and as a result – save costs and improve productivity and sustainability.
In addition to the plant in Thailand, Frigel has two manufacturing facilities in Italy, including its Corporate Headquarters in Scandicci (Florence), as well as Brazil, where it also provides sales, engineering, parts and product support. Additional operations that provide sales, engineering, parts and service include the United States, Germany and Australia. Strategically located throughout the world, Frigel provides comprehensive industry expertise and support virtually everywhere manufacturers are located.
