BITZER at a glance
Refrigeration and air conditioning technology are of inestimable value in our world. They allow food to be transported over thousands of miles and then be stored, without loss of freshness and quality. In buildings, air conditioning brings a distinct improvement to living and working conditions. Every day blood banks save the lives of countless people, while many products, such as semiconductors, can only be manufactured with this technology. In all these situations it is essential that the refrigeration and air conditioning systems function reliably.
