The specialist for refrigeration and air conditioning technology BITZER produces at 16 locations worldwide. Now the BITZER plant in Schkeuditz near Leipzig manufactured its three millionth product (compressors and condensing units). The anniversary product was received by Vötsch Industrietechnik GmbH, which uses it in one of its screening devices for environmental simulations.

They have been business partners for over 20 years: Vötsch Industrietechnik, which belongs to the Weiss Technik Companies, and BITZER. BITZER has been manufacturing reciprocating compressors and condensing units at the Schkeuditz site for a similar period of time since 1991. In November 2019, local production broke the three-million barrier – the anniversary product was received by Carsten Bräuer, Head of Development and Testing at Vötsch in Balingen, Germany. With Vötsch, Balingen is home to the competence center for standard test equipment of the Weiss Technik Companies. Bräuer sums up, “We greatly appreciate BITZER as a supplier for compressors, condensers and oil separators. BITZER is our preferred supplier in this area. Products and support are equally reliable. In 2018, for example, we purchased around 1,000 products from BITZER for our German locations.” Vötsch in Balingen develops and builds test systems for quality assurance in the field of environmental simulation. This is also where BITZER comes into play: Vötsch uses BITZER products for air conditioning applications in test rooms with temperature ranges from -10C to +95C and in temperature ranges from -80 C to +180C. n
