GERMANY: ECR Italy has been named Distributor of the Year by refrigeration compressor manufacturer Bitzer.

The presentation was made at Bitzer’s recent EMEA Distribution Conference in Leipzig, Germany.

ECR Italy SpA was founded in 2000 when two long-established refrigeration component distributors – Carlo Eisner (founded in 1955) and Frigoram Commerciale (founded in 1946) – joined in establishing the largest refrigeration wholesaler in Italy.

From its headquarters in Milan, ECR Italy SpA has represented Bitzer in Italy from the very beginning of the distributor’s foundation. The company became part of the Swedish Beijer Ref wholesaling group in 2009 and today boasts 16 sales branches across Italy.
