DENMARK: Danfoss has acquired heat exchanger manufacturer Sondex.

Sondex, a global company headquartered in Kolding, Denmark, is seen as an ideal match to the Danfoss heating business segment, even though it does supply products for the air conditioning and refrigeration industry.

“Sondex is a well-performing company with a second-to-none heat exchanger expertise, which perfectly fits our ambition to further strengthen our position within heat transfer solutions,” said Danfoss president and CEO Niels B Christiansen. “By joining forces we are able to offer a broader, even more competitive and innovative product and service portfolio within heat transfer to the benefit of our customers.”

Danfoss says it sees the combination of the businesses as an important lever to develop the already strong market position in district energy and HVAC, and to increase relevance within industries as marine, food and beverage, off-shore, and industrial refrigeration.
