GEA will sell its industrial refrigeration contracting operations in Spain and Italy to Clauger, a French family-owned company that specializes in industrial refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. The transaction is expected to close in the fall.

GEA Refrigeration Italy S.p.A., based in Castel Maggiore, and GEA Refrigeration Ibérica S.A., based in Alcobendas, both provide customized refrigeration solutions for industrial customers.

The transaction does not affect GEA’s compressor selling business in the two countries.
