Since it was founded in 1992, VaCom Technologies has been a pioneer in energy-efficiency consulting and its application within industrial refrigeration control systems. Now, the US-based company enters the growing Indian market. VaCom Technologies India was officially opened today in the city of Pune within the scope of a virtual opening ceremony.
VaCom Technologies, a member of the BITZER Group, specialises in the complete development, financial analysis, performance and energy monitoring for industrial refrigeration control systems within the food and beverage and cold chain logistics markets. It has delivered more energy efficiency incentives (more than $92M USD to over 600 facilities) than any other industrial refrigeration control systems company in North America. In India, VaCom sees a high demand for energy-saving industrial refrigeration and growth potential as well. To be part of the Indian growth story it is necessary to be close to the customers and thus VaCom will provide its expertise directly to customers on the large subcontinent.
VaCom Technologies with sites in Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, and Denver became part of the specialist for refrigeration and air conditioning technology BITZER US in 2018. Gianni Parlanti, BITZER Chief Sales and Marketing Officer and Member of the Executive Board, states: “At BITZER, it is our steady aim to strengthen the energy efficiency of our customers’ systems and to support the use of low-GWP refrigerants. It is beyond doubt that the Indian market is rapidly evolving in this respect. This is where VaCom comes in with their proven expertise in industrial refrigeration controls and energy efficiency solutions.”
Sustainability in industrial refrigeration
Matt Lish, Managing Director VaCom Technologies underlines: “The need for energy efficiency is growing in parallel with India’s burgeoning cold chain and refrigerated food production industries. We are excited to bring our industry-leading, energy efficient refrigeration control systems and EnergyDashboard® Performance Monitoring services to the Indian market. With the formation of this new, local company, we are looking forward to offering equivalent, unparalleled support to both North American as well as Indian cold storage and food processing companies as they too expand their operations across both markets.”
VaCom Technologies is leading in energy efficiency and refrigeration control systems especially in the food and beverages industry – an expertise that now highly benefits India. As Harvinder Bhatia, Managing Director of BITZER and VaCom India, puts it: “The Indian market will be shaped by energy-efficient solutions in the future seeing that the costs for high-GWP refrigerants are rising. VaCom’s approaches are ideal for a populous country like India, where the transition to sustainable, intelligent technologies is a high priority due to the significant environmental impact. We look forward to supporting the Indian food processing and cold storage markets improve energy efficiency, performance and safety of their systems and operations.”
