Tecumseh to expand AE2 compressor production


USA: Compressor manufacturer Tecumseh is increasing production at its factory in Verona, Mississippi. The investment, reported to be around $10m, will see a new production line for its recently introduced AE2 commercial refrigeration compressor. There are also plans to increase condensing unit production at the Verona factory


The AE2 line is expected to be operational by October. Currently, the AE2 compressor is manufactured in Brazil and France. Since its launch in January 2011, the AE2 has seen rapid adoption in beverage coolers, commercial refrigerators and freezers and similar applications worldwide. It benefits from being suitable for R134a and R404A as well as propane and isobutane.

Tecumseh, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has over 30 facilities worldwide and established the Verona plant in 1975.
