Munters opens new data centre cooling factory
USA: The Swedish air treatment and climate solutions business Munters has opened a new factory for the production of data centre cooling equipment in Virginia, USA.
Munters is relocating operations from its plant in Buena Vista, Virginia, to the new, 34,000m2 manufacturing facility. It becomes the company’s largest plant in the Americas and doubles the manufacturing capacity available in Daleville. It will increase the production capacity of cooling and humidity control equipment and add more than 150 jobs.
“The demand for innovative and sustainable data centre cooling is expected to remain strong. I am very excited about our new factory that gives us the infrastructure we need to continue to provide world-class, energy-efficient solutions to our customers,” said Stefan Aspman, group vice president and president of the data center technologies business area.
“The new modern factory will offer the best possible working environment for our employees. It is designed with Munters’ net-zero emissions target in mind. The upcoming installation of solar panels on the roof, which is estimated to cover a large part of the daily energy consumption, is an example of this,” Aspman added.
