Acquisition to strengthen its capabilities in the industrial refrigeration markets

Emerson Climate Technologies, a business of Emerson, recently announced that it has acquired Vilter Manufacturing, a privately held compressor manufacturer based in Cudahy, Wisconsin. Vilter, whose compressors are used in an array of industrial refrigeration systems, will become a part of Emerson Climate Technologies’ Refrigeration Division, which provides commercial refrigeration products and solutions. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Vilter has a well-respected brand that will enhance our presence in the food processing and cold storage segments of the refrigeration industry,” said Ed Purvis, Executive Vice President and Business Leader of Emerson Climate Technologies. “This acquisition will allow us to expand our existing industry-best product offering and strengthen our position in the refrigeration industry.”

Pratap Chavan, Vice President and Managing Director, Middle East and Africa, of Emerson Climate Technologies, said: “There are already many Vilter compressors operating for over a decade in the MEA region. Vilter single screw compressors offer tremendous benefits to customers in the region due to its part-load efficiency, reliability and ease of maintenance.”

Some of the refrigeration markets served by Vilter are:

  • Meat and poultry
  • Beverage
  • Food processing
  • Dairy
  • Seafood
  • Refrigerated storage and warehousing
  • Ice rinks and arenas

Vilter is, reportedly, fully supported in the region via Emerson Climate Technologies’ Dubai office, by providing sales, application and after-sales support.
