Danfoss plans Turbocor production in Europe
DENMARK: Danfoss is to establish a Turbocor service centre at its headquarters in Nordborg, with plans to start full production of its oil-free compressors in Denmark by 2026.
The new Configuration & Service Centre will increase local support to its customers in Europe, where demand for Danfoss Turbocor technology remains strong for high efficiency heat pumps and data centres.
The centre, which is planned for completion next year, will handle repairs and final-stage assembly, configuring the compressors based on customer requirements, and begin to establish the foundation for full production in Denmark in the future.
Danfoss Turbocor compressors are currently manufactured in Tallahassee, Florida, and Shanghai, China.
The new facility will support the European service centre established in 2016 in Offenbach, Germany, which provides aftermarket sales, service and spare parts distribution.
“Establishing the Turbocor Center in Nordborg is a strong step towards offering increased support for our European customers, as well as reducing the carbon footprint of our products in line with our ESG goals,” said Ricardo Schneider, president of Danfoss Turbocor Compressors.
“This move will allow us to form an even closer connection with our customers, where we can be even more flexible in fulfilling their customisation requirements,” added Lars Grewe, operations manager for Turbocor Compressors Europe/Middle East
“By locating our service centre in Nordborg, we make it easier to plan deliveries with road transport in Europe. Previously we would have to send products back and forth between Europe and Florida when they needed to be repaired. By centralising configuration, service and, eventually, production in one location, we reduce our transport-related CO2 emissions.”
