First of former GEA Heat Exchanger companies announces its new name, blending the Denco brand with name of GEA’s founder Otto Happel
DencoHappel is the new name for the air treatment business that used to be part of GEA Heat Exchangers and includes the Denco operation. The company, bought by investment firm Triton, said that the name has been chosen because both Denco and Happel “both stand for high quality and reliability.”
It said: “We see these changes as a very positive development enhancing co-operation within our companies and developing the platform to enhance our products and services further. In this way, we are able to accelerate our growth strategy and better fulfil the wishes and requirements of our customers.”
DencoHappel provides equipment and systems and maintenance for air conditioning, filtering and cooling with 1700 employees and manufacturing plant in Germany, the UK, Czech Republic, Turkey, China and India. Brands include CAIRplus, MultiMaXX and Denco.
The company said that some individual companies would take longer to rename than others due to local legal requirements, and that the UK legal entity GEA Heat Exchangers Ltd would remain in place for the time being.
