German refrigeration brand talks up UK plans


Retail refrigeration manufacturer Viessmann is plotting to achieve “significant growth” in the UK market after widening its cold room and commercial refrigeration offering.

In addition to cold rooms for trade and industry, the company says it is now offering innovative, high-efficiency refrigeration systems for food retailers.

Last year, the German firm acquired the Finnish Norpe Group, bringing it a range of refrigeration cabinets, lamellas and power packs for the food retail industry.

This, says UK director Steve Prior, provides the food manufacturing, retail and food service industries with a significant source of cooling products for both front- and back-of-house operations, and a single point of contact for sales, product specification and after-sales support.

He said: “In the UK, where we are already trusted for our high quality engineered cold rooms and commercial refrigerators, now we can provide an all-encompassing offer which includes innovative retail concepts and a superior shopping experience for consumers. We plan significant growth in the UK retail sector.”

Viessmann operates production plants in Germany and Finland.
