Enex adds Spanish manufacturer EOS

ITALY/SPAIN: Enex Technologies has further expanded its portfolio of “natural” refrigerant focused companies with the acquisition of Barcelona-based EOS Refrigeration Equipment SL.

Founded in 2012, EOS manufactures industrial refrigeration and process cooling equipment operating on “natural” refrigerants. This includes evaporators, condensers, evaporative condensers, dry coolers, adiabatic coolers, cooling towers, chillers and heat pumps.

Francisco Vallina, founder and CEO of EOS, has been named president of Enex Technologies Industrial Refrigeration Division, which spans EOS and Samifi France. In his new role, Francisco will be supported by Samifi general manager and divisional COO Franck Hamelin and sales director Remy Prunac.

In addition to EOS, Enex Technologies’ portfolio of HVACR manufacturers now includes Enex, Roen Est and Emicon/Hidros/EthraTech in Italy, Arctic and Kobol in Spain, and Morgana and Samifi in France.

“The addition to Enex Technologies of such a complete portfolio of inox/aluminium ventilated units and ammonia refrigeration machines tailored for natural refrigerants aligns with our passion for offering natural and energy efficient solutions to our customers,” commented Enex Technologies chairman Greg Deldicque.

Enex Technologies has forecasted 2023 sales of over €200m. It opened a new 7,500m2 factory in Treviso last year, quadrupling its manufacturing footprint. It is now building what it claims will be the largest research laboratory in Europe for products using “natural” refrigerants.
