Bitzer opened a subsidiary at Tehran in Iran and an office at Nairobi in Kenya. The foundation ceremony for the new Bitzer subsidiary Bitzer Iranian was held at the Espinas Hotel on December 5. The company has invited selected business partners to the ceremony and, among other things, presented a cutaway model of its intelligent Varispeed compressor with integrated frequency inverter.
Up to 500,000 Bitzer compressors are now in use in Iran. In Iran, the reciprocating, screw, and scroll compressors and condensing units pro-vided by the long-standing German company are primarily used in super-market refrigeration, food production, the fish and meat industry, and the manufacture of dairy products, as well as in hospitals, hotels and office blocks.
