GEA Refrigeration buys Bock

Refrigeration giant GEA Refrigeration Technologies has increased its compressor portfolio with the purchase of German firm Bock Kaltemaschinen.

The deal, for an undisclosed sum, sees GEA acquire the German family-owned firm, which has a staff of 300 and factories in the Czech Republic, India and China. Its portolio includes compressors from 5-300 cu m and customers across industrial and commercial sectors and includes CO2 units.

GEA sector president Dr Hugo Blaum said: “The future will belong to smaller, higher compression machines with natural refrigerants. The Bock expertise in the lower performance range and mass production are therefore highly welcome to us.”
