GERMANY: Engie Refrigeration has acquired the CO2 high temperature heat pump business of Hafner-Muschler Kälte- und Klimatechnik from the administrator.
The former Dürr Thermea product range was only acquired by Hafner-Muschler in August last year. Since March Hafner-Muschler has been operating under the direction of administrator Alexander Kästle. The acquisition is said to include all patents as well as rights to all trademarks and names.
The activities previously performed for Dürr Thermea GmbH at the Ottendorf-Okrilla site in Dresden comprise the construction, production, sale and servicing of CO2-based heat pumps and compressed-air refrigeration dryers. All employees will be kept on, the company says, and integrated into the Engie Refrigeration organisation as a new division.
Equipment already been sold under the Thermea brand around the world will be looked after by the international Engie Refrigeration service network in future.
