Carrier Transicold buys Dutch firm TRS

TRSNETHERLANDS: US transport refrigeration company Carrier Transicold has announced the acquisition of TRS Transportkoeling bv, a Dutch manufacturer of sustainable transport refrigeration systems.

Founded in 1981 and based in Noordwijk, TRS has grown from a local service organisation to an international producer of sustainable transport refrigeration systems for trucks, containers and controlled atmosphere refrigerated transport. It designs, produces and services engineless refrigeration systems using hydro-electric technology. Sourcing power from the truck engine improves fuel efficiency, lowers noise levels and reduces maintenance.

“The acquisition of TRS enables Carrier Transicold to enhance its range of engineless transport refrigeration, strengthening our efforts toward achieving a sustainable cold chain,” said Victor Calvo, vice president and general manager, Carrier Transicold Truck Trailer, EMEA, Russia, Asia. “We have seen the emergence of a number of regulations to limit noise and environmental impact in the recent years. We believe TRS’ innovation and technology will further help our customers meet their efficiency and sustainability goals.”
