Enex Technologies expands into France

The new Morgana factory in Groslay which the company moved into last year

ITALY: Enex Technologies has announced its expansion into France with the acquisitions of industrial refrigeration company Samifi France and heat exchanger manufacturer Morgana.

The acquisition announcement comes on the eve of the company’s first appearance at this week’s Chillventa exhibition in Nuremberg and adds to Enex Technologies’ growing portfolio of “natural” refrigerant focused HVACR business units. 

“With 300 years of combined history, we are excited to participate at Chillventa 2022 together for the first time with our refrigeration business units Arctic, Enex and Samifi France and our heat exchanger business units Kobol, Morgana and Roen Est,” said Sergio Girotto, founder and chief operating officer of Enex Srl. 

Founded in 1934, Samifi France is seen as a leading European producer of ammonia refrigeration racks and chillers for the industrial refrigeration and agri-food sectors.

Morgana is based in Groslay and has been producing finned coil heat exchangers including evaporators, condensers and hot and cold coils compatible with CO2, ammonia and water-based refrigeration equipment since 1948. 

Now with six business units operating in more than 65 countries, Enex Technologies claims to offer unparalleled aftermarket support, replacement parts, technical and field service and training equipment installers and end-customers. It also claims to be the only HVACR manufacturer in Europe to offer solutions using all three “natural” refrigerants – ammonia, CO2 and propane.

Headquartered in Treviso, Italy, Enex Technologies has more than €100 million in revenues, eight manufacturing facilities and more than 700 employees across Italy, Spain, France and Slovakia. It recently invested over €10m in a new 7,500m2 factory in Treviso and is currently making a €4m investment in a new, best-in-class research laboratory specialised in HVACR equipment working with “natural” refrigerants.

In addition to the two new companies, Enex Technologies’ businesses comprise:

Arctic: Based in Madrid and founded in 1997, Arctic is a leader in the production of commercial and industrial refrigeration solutions using ammonia and CO2.

Enex: Founded in 2004 by industry pioneer Sergio Girotto, Enex is the leading innovator in the commercial and industrial refrigeration sectors, specializing in the design and production of high-efficiency refrigeration systems using “natural” refrigerants, in particular CO2. To date, Enex has deployed more than 2,000 refrigeration systems using CO2 refrigerant in all climate conditions.

Kobol: Based in Spain and founded in 1968, Kobol produces evaporators, brine coolers, condensers, dry coolers, CO2 gas coolers, coils and customized heat exchangers used primarily for food preservation and air conditioning applications.

Roen Est: Founded in 1983 in Italy, Roen Est is a leading European solution provider for the design and production of heat exchangers used in air conditioning, refrigeration, heating and cogeneration applications.

Enex Technologies is at Chillventa on stand 7-210.
