Since 1960: innovation
1960 when everything starts
Frigel Firenze is born in a small plant in Sesto Fiorentino (FI), from the beginning dedicated to designing and selling cooling systems for the industry. In the '80s it was the first company to propose heat-exchanger fluid cooling with ambient air (Ecodry), thus starting a real revolution in the sector.
Ecodry System: the revolutionary plastic cooling system
In the early '90s Frigel, strongly believing in research and development, designs a new integrated cooling system specifically designed for the plastics industry. The Ecodry System is born, which has created a new state of the art, allowing thousands of users to obtain significant production improvements in quantitative and qualitative terms, as well as huge savings in electricity and water compared to traditional technical solutions.
Present on all the continents
After the creation of a global commercial network, in 2006 the development plan began with the creation of companies and production plants starting from:
- 2007 New Florence office
- 2008 Frigel North America (USA)
- 2011 Frigel Asia Pacific (Thailand)
- 2012 Frigel Latin America (Brazil)
- 2013 Frigel GmbH (Germany)
- 2017 Frigel Asia Pacific expansion
- 2018 Frigel India
- 2019 Frigel Eastern Europe Sp. Z O. O.
Total covered area 45,000 m2 (485,000 ft2)
The group is strengthened through the integration of new businesses
In 2012, Frigel Custom Cooling Solutions S.r.l. (FCCS), operating in the production of plants, was established for refrigeration and air conditioning for the marine, oil & gas and energy sectors.
In 2014, Frigel Intelligent Energy Solutions was set up, whose object is the offer of integrated services for the realization and management of energy efficiency measures.
In 2018, Frigel took over 100% of the Paduan company Green Box S.r.l. with the aim of creating an increasingly important reference point in the industrial refrigeration and thermoregulation sector.
Frigel's innovation conquers new industrial sectors
In 2017, the expansion project in the beverage sector is launched, thanks to an innovative evolution of the Ecodry System called synchronized cooling.
In 2018, expansion into the metals sector comes to life through a dedicated configuration of the Ecodry System for the die-casting industry.
We will always believe in innovation
The knowledge acquired over the years and the confrontation with new engineering challenges will be the basis for giving continuity to the research and development of pioneering solutions and for continuing the creation of new industrial standards.
In 2011, Frigel purchased the COSFI company, which operated in the cooling sector (air conditioning) and industrial refrigeration since 1987, and relaunched it under the name Frigel Custom Cooling Solutions.
The experiences gained by COSFI in the application of the ATEX European standards since their debut in 2002 and with the unique ability to customize products, allowed the company to achieve a solid standing in the Marine sector and laid the foundations for an ideal position in the Oil & Gas sector. Frigel has promoted the development of the company until reaching a position of global leadership in the sector of machinery for HVAC Oil & Gas.
New challenges, aimed at achieving similar goals in the Marine and Energy sectors, now open up to the Marine, Oil & Gas, Energy division, which is based on the technical production structure of Frigel, extending into all the group's commercial and production branches.
Green Box was founded in 1991 by technicians with a high level of experience in the field of industrial thermodynamic design and created a wide range of chillers and thermoregulators for controlling the temperature of water and fluids in industrial processes.
The fundamental criteria of their designs are energy savings, customization, reliability over time, high efficiency, extreme ease of use, excellent accessibility to all components and modularity.
Green Box researches and designs with customers solutions dedicated to their specific needs, with a goal of full and constant satisfaction and with the guarantee of both technical and commercial support services.
