Norpe becomes Viessmann Refrigeration


FINLAND: Part of the Viessmann Group since 2013, commercial refrigeration manufacturer Norpe is to change its name to Viessmann Refrigeration Systems Oy.

Founded in 1953 in Finland, Norpe is headquartered in Porvoo, Finland. The company employs over 400 and produces a range of products including remote and plug-in cabinets, power packs, lamellas and services for post- and pre-installation.

Since its acquisition in September 2013, Norpe Group is said to have become one of the main growth segments at Viessmann.

“The long experience and well-established position of Norpe in the Nordic markets offers a solid foundation for the Viessmann brand to combine the expertise of heating, cooling, refrigeration and climate control technology as well as energy management under one distinctive brand name,” Viessmann said in a statement. “In the future, the Viessmann name will be strongly visible in our products and all marketing communications,” it added.
