Trane acquires Italian chiller manufacturer MTA

BELGIUM: Trane Technologies has acquired MTA, the Italian manufacturer and distributor of  industrial refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.

With nearly 500 employees and manufacturing sites in Tribano and Conselve, MTA claims a production capacity of 13,500 systems a year. 

Turnover is around €90m, of which 80% is for export, 75% in the Eurozone. The main countries are Germany, France, the UK and the USA. With its network of official representatives, MTA has a presence in over 80 countries throughout the world. The Group has subsidiaries in Australia, France, Germany, Spain and the United States.
