GERMANY/SLOVENIA: German commercial and industrial refrigeration and air conditioning manufacturer Kaltra has opened a new 4,000m² factory in Slovenia.

The facility, which also includes a test lab and offices, will initially employ 30 workers, growing to around 80 within the next two years.

Kaltra reports increased interest for its products and a revenue growth of 60% last year. The new state-of-the-art factory will allow Kaltra to expand annual production capacity by more than 30% in 2018.

The Slovenian factory will produce condensers, dry coolers, air coolers, small to medium capacity chillers, and precision air conditioning units based on microchannel evaporators.
