Bitzer to remanufacture other compressors

1130 Green Point Launched Pic bUK: Green Point, Bitzer’s compressor remanufacturing operation, is expanding its service in the UK to include other makes of compressor.

When launched last year, the company handled only Bitzer units. From September, however, it is extending its capabilities to include compressors made by Bock, Carrier, Copeland, and Trane.

“The aim always was to begin by remanufacturing Bitzer compressors. Having successfully established the business, and with a growing customer base, we are now widening the offer to include machines from other manufacturers,” commented Will Pribyl, general manager of Green Point in the UK.

“Customers tell us they appreciate the outstanding quality of our Bitzer units, and are keen to have access to similar high quality remanufactured compressors from other manufacturers. It goes without saying that we will be adopting the same uncompromising approach to standards as with our own equipment,” he added.

To support the growth, Green Point is expanding the UK engineering team with the appointment of France Bootun as remanufacture technician.

Bitzer UK launched Green Point in Spring 2014 with a 2,600m² facility at the UK company’s headquarters in Bletchley. It is one of more than 40 Bitzer Green Point locations around the world, some of them also now offering this extended service.

Backed by Bitzer’s unrivalled technical know-how, Green Point is able to upgrade compressors to as-new standard from any state or condition. The company always fits new motors and replaces all key wear components, while offering machines at a price point around 30% below new.

“A key issue in the market is availability, as most orders arise from breakdown situations, “ says Will Pribyl. “Green Point has a huge advantage here, as we are part of the wider European and indeed global Green Point network. If we don’t have a particular model in stock, we have access to stock held across the network. This has proved invaluable already, enabling us to supply exactly the unit required at very short notice.”
