Adiabatic cooling equipment maker Frigel is nearing completion of its new 97,000 ft2 manufacturing facility in Bangkok, Thailand, as the company expands to meet growing demand for its process cooling technology.
The $7 million plant was slated for completion in April and will primarily serve customers in the Asia-Pacific market. The total investment for the plant includes costs for land, construction and production machinery. The new facility, which began construction in 2013, is expected to be fully operational in September 2015. Frigel will transition to the new facility from its existing 10,764 ft2 Bangkok plant over the summer.
In addition to the plant in Thailand, Frigel has two manufacturing facilities in Italy, including its corporate headquarters in Scandicci (Florence), as well as Brazil, where it also provides sales, engineering, parts and product support. Additional operations that provide sales, engineering, parts and service include the United States, Germany and Australia.
